Lyrics from I Believe In A Thing Called LoveFrom Lowestoft, England, the Darkness deliver the retro rock ‘n roll vibe to the post-classic rock world. Having formed in 2000 with lead vocals Justin Hawkins, his brother and guitarist Dan Hawkins, bassist Frankie Poullain and drummer Ed Graham, the band debuted Permission to Land in 2003, taking an almost instantaneous rise to the top of UK charts. Following the band’s debut success, they went on to tour with the likes of Metallica, performing their arguably most notable number, “I Believe In A Thing Called Love.” The Darkness released One Way Ticket to Hell… And Back in 2005, following Poullain’s departure and the subsequent addition of Richie Edwards, the band’s guitar technician, on bass. Lead vocals Hawkins left the band in 2006 due to health concerns, resulting in a temporary breakup. However, in March 2011, the Darkness made their return with both Poullain on bass and Hawkins as lead vocals, and released their latest Hot Cakes.
