A message from the band

+ posted by FlamingWhopper

After Justin saw a doctor last week and was recommended to "cancel all professional commitments or work-related activities", we had little choice but to cancel the band’s appearance at the Skanderborg Festival in Denmark, something that the band hate to do, but having been out on the road constantly for such a long time and having not had any time off over the past three years, that’s what Justin has decided to do and we are all agreed that his health must come first.

As everybody found out today, Justin has been admitted to a rehabilitation clinic. We would however like to make it clear that this emphatically does not signal the end for The Darkness, nor are their label Atlantic Records considering 'dropping' them. On the contrary they have taken up their option
with the band and are looking forward to releasing The Darkness' third album in early 2007.

We are not here to comment on Justin's private life - or anyone else's for that matter - but he is feeling better already and as soon as he is ready we will be going straight into the studio to begin recording album number 3.

We hope you would join us in wishing Justin well - and it is for you to judge if a platinum album, headlining and co-headlining sold out shows across the UK, Continental Europe and Australia, etc. to an audience of thousands of adoring fans can ever be considered a failure!

Dan, Ed and Richie

THE DARKNESS frontman JUSTIN HAWKINS checked himself into London rehab clinic The Priory on Saturday (12AUG06), according to a British newspaper. The I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE rocker, who has admitted battling the eating disorder bulimia in the past, prompted fears over his health when he cancelled a festival appearance in Denmark last week (ends13AUG06). The 31-year-old has been under increasing pressure following the commercial failure of his group's second album ONE WAY TICKET TO HELL... AND BACK, and it's rumoured his record label is preparing to drop him. An insider tells the Daily Mirror, "Justin's been feeling really low of late and he wanted to go somewhere he could clear his head. "He's been looking terrible - his skin's taken on a weird yellow pallor. The Priory really is the best place for him." THE ROLLING STONES guitarist RONNIE WOOD recently spent a spell in the clinic as he battled alcohol dependency.

British rockers THE DARKNESS were forced to cancel their appearance at the Skanderborg Festival in Denmark today (Thursday, August 10) after the group's frontman, Justin Hawkins, was taken ill. The band's official statement on the matter reads as follows:

"We regret to inform you that Justin has had to see a doctor today and yesterday and that the doctor has ordered him in no uncertain terms to take some time off. Therefore THE DARKNESS will not be able to fulfil their commitment to perform at [Thursday's] Skanderborg Festival in Denmark. The band are very sorry that this is happening but Justin's health must come first.
