Justin and Dan Hawkins have reportedly held talks about reforming rock band The Darkness. According to The Sun, the brothers are currently demoing new material in a Lowestoft studio. “If their stuff is liked by label staff they will attempt to reunite The Darkness,” said a source.
The Darkness scored a number one album with their 2003 debut Permission to Land, which included the singles ‘Growing On Me’ and ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’.
Their follow-up disc, One Way Ticket to Hell… And Back, charted at number 11, but frontman Justin left the group in 2006 after a spell in rehab. Since leaving, he has worked on musical projects including British Whale and glam rock group Hot Leg.
During a Hot Leg concert in 2009, the Hawkins brothers reunited on stage for a performance of ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’, sparking rumors of a full Darkness reunion.
