British rock 'n' rollers the Darkness have been forced to postpone their upcoming Australia / New Zealand tour dates due to drummer Ed Graham's severe hip problems. Having already gone through "extensive surgery" several years ago, Graham has been playing through the pain for the last few weeks, but the drummer has now been advised to rest up and undergo testing before returning to his spot behind the kit.
The Darkness have unleashed a music video for their tune ‘With a Woman,' which marks the fourth single from the band’s 2012 disc ‘Hot Cakes.’ The clip delivers ‘Episode 1’ of what will likely take music fans on a trip down memory lane to a time when the hair was big and the videos were larger than life.
After a bit of an extended break, the Darkness returned in August with their latest disc ‘Hot Cakes,’ the follow-up to 2005's 'One Way Ticket to Hell... and Back.' Now, as if making up for lost time, the band is plotting to take their tasty musical treats out on the road again for a 2013 headlining run that will span 15 countries.
The Darkness recently returned with their new disc ‘Hot Cakes’ on Aug. 21, ending a six year drought of new music from the Brit rockers. In a new interview, guitarist Dan Hawkins talks about playing in a band with his brother Justin and owning a custom Les Paul that was made for the legendary Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin fame.
Just as In This Moment were on the brink of entering the Cage Match Hall of Fame, Arizona metalcore band the Word Alive were able to knock the band off of their top spot. Now, the Word Alive begin their own trek to the Hall of Fame, but to gain their second win, they must defeat a group of rock 'n' roll juggernauts from merry old England.
