The Darkness Tickets

The Darkness is a British rock band often mistaken for being glam rock by the general public, while touting themselves as classic hard rock. They have an highly retro sound and have been influenced by many bands from the '70s and '80s. Lead singer Justin Hawkins' soaring falsetto makes them immediately distinguishable from other present-day rock bands.

The Darkness Information Continued

Their classic rock style of music seems to be influenced by 1970s rock bands like Queen, AC/DC, Elton John, Judas Priest, Thin Lizzy, Cheap Trick, T. Rex and Led Zeppelin as well as 1980s rock bands such as Van Halen and Def Leppard.

Achieving major success in the UK in 2003, The Darkness received considerable radio airplay of their singles, including "I Believe in a Thing Called Love" and the holiday hit "Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)". Their debut album, Permission to Land, reached number one in the UK charts and went on to sell one and a half million copies in the UK alone.

In 2005, Justin Hawkins also recorded a solo single, a cover of the 1976 Sparks hit "This Town Ain't Big Enough For Both Of Us" under the pseudonym British Whale.

One Way Ticket, the first single from their second album, was released on 14 November 2005, debuting and peaking at number 8 on the UK Singles chart. The Darkness released their second album One Way Ticket to Hell...And Back on November 28, 2005 to rave reviews.
