NEW ALBUMS

THE DARKNESS – EASTER IS CANCELLED

The Darkness have just released their sixth album, Easter Is Cancelled.

Bassist Frankie Poullain:

A lot of bands have relinquished their duty. Rock and roll is so uniform now. Everybody dresses the same, looks the same, sounds the same. It’s pathetic. It deserves to die. Let’s kill the cliché. Let’s break the crucifix. That’s partly what the album is about.
