On its sophomore album, the Darkness enlists former Queen producer Roy Thomas Baker, just in case one or two listeners failed to detect singer Justin Hawkins' blatant Freddie Mercury impersonations on 2003 debut "Permission to Land."

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Guitar Center, Inc. (Nasdaq NMS: GTRC), the leading musical instrument and professional audio retailer for over 40 years, has announced an extraordinary December promotion. One lucky winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip for four to see neo-glam rock band The Darkness perform live in the city of their choice and a Gibson Les Paul Classic guitar signed by the entire band. Guitar Center has teamed up with Atlantic Records to give its customers the chance to recover from all of the holiday madness with a trip to rock out to one of the hottest acts today, according to Jack Sonni, vice president of marketing communication for Guitar Center.

British rockers THE DARKNESS have selected "Is It Just Me?" as the second single off their sophomore album, "One Way Ticket to Hell ... and Back". The single will be released in the U.K. on CD, DVD and limited-edition 7" on February 20.

"One Way Ticket to Hell …and Back" is the follow-up to THE DARKNESS' 2003 debut, "Permission to Land", (Must Destroy/Atlantic), which has sold almost 700,000 units in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The CD is THE DARKNESS' first release with new bassist Richie Edwards (ex-ONION TRUMP), who replaced Frankie Poullain in June. For the past two years, Edwards has toured extensively with the band as their guitar technician.

"One Way Ticket to Hell …and Back" has sold 48,000 copies in the United States so far, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

One Way Ticket to Hell . . . and Back’ The Darkness
(Atlantic): The cover of the second album from this throwback metal band depicts a runaway train screeching toward the fires of Hades. It’s too bad the music underneath the cover is off the tracks.

The best of British

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

Oooh, they are awful ... but we like them. The Darkness revel in the saucy traditions of English humour.

It begins with a vaguely East Asian synthesiser whirl and two bars of acoustic guitar, then the barely restrained drama of the vocals introduces us to the narrator. He hails "from the flatlands of East Anglia" and tells of a woman who has come from "a land afar" where the seas have been emptied by callous fishing.
