The Darkness - Hot Cakes
'Hot Cakes' is the British glam-rock group's third studio album, and first new music in seven years.
The album, produced by the band's Justin and Dan Hawkins with long-time collaborator Nick Brine and mixed by Bob Ezrin, will deliver the epic rock anthems and infectious pop choruses the multi-platinum band has become renowned for worldwide. 'Hot Cakes' marks the follow-up to the group's multi-platinum debut 'Permission To Land', with its fan favorites 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love' and 'Get Your Hands Off My Womam', as well as the revered 'One-Way Ticket To Hell And Back' which featured 'One Way Ticket' and 'Is It Just Me?'.
2012 has been a stellar year for The Darkness, after sold-out tours of the UK and North America; being featured in a Superbowl ad (broadcast to over 100 million viewers in the tense fourth quarter of the game) and announcing their world tour with Lady Gaga. Described by the LA Weekly as "...heroically reunited, with a returned sense of fun and still this millennium's most multi-dimensionally entertaining live rock show" and in the The Toronto Star as delivering "a non-stop barrage of succinct, high-impact popsmithery", The Darkness are poised to hit the stratosphere and beyond.
