truly??
the singer is reminiscent of Freddy Mercury?

I've only heard a part of one of their songs on the radio, but I noticed a thread about them here a while ago and the news was good
I will be seeing them at a festival next week. They are on second on the main stage, middle of the day, so there is chance it won't be too crowded yet.
This could be good

Awww, come on! I have sorely missed the long hair and Lycra in rock music. I'm pretty tired of the shaved heads and lip piercings.

This album is a blast--everyone else has said it better than I could. For those who agonize over album purchases, it is only $8.99 at Borders.

I want to see them live sooo bad.

I like Get Your Hands Off Of My Woman, but I can't sit through a video of them on Mtv without laughing my ass off.

The news on MTV2 reported tonight that there are plans for The Darkness to tour around these parts in the spring and summer of this year.

I finally saw them on MTV this morning, and Queen immediately came to mind, and I hadn't read this thread before!

Not only Freddie, but the singing sounds like Roger Taylor at times, and the harmonies, and the guitar playing sounds a bit like Brian May.


But all that is not a bad thing.

I cannot imagine them on that tiny stage. What a show that is going to be.
