The Darkness Rock on Without Justin Hawkins

Published: 2007-02-23
Leader singer Justin Hawkins quit The Darkness after a stint in rehab and is now focused on trying to stay clean. Nonetheless, the boys will trek on without him as The Darkness are currently working in the studio without Justin. Bassist Richie Edwards will take on where Justin left off and take the role as lead singer.

The three remaining members are currently recording a new record together but when the release date rolls around it will be sent to the shelves with a different band name. New lead singer, Richie Edwards spoke on his MySpace page about his excitement for the new disc, "It's finally happened, the big red record button has been pressed and we've officially started our album."
