Justin Hawkins Goes Off On His Own

Published: 2007-04-19
After leaving his band to kick his drug and alcohol addictions last October, former lead singer-guitarist for The Darkness, Justin Hawkins is back on the music scene. Three songs from what may be Hawkins' forthcoming solo release are now up on his MySpace page. According to Hawkins, the three tunes were written before The Darkness' first studio album Permission To Land.

While Hawkins has been working on his solo effort and his side project Magnet Watch, the three reaming members of The Darkness have been keeping busy as well. The band decided to press on despite Hawkins' unexpected absence. They have a brand new album that they are opting to release under a different name with the absence of their former frontman.
