The Darkness have ascended rapidly into the top rank of the music and media scene and have got everyone talking, from the "Sun" and the "Telegraph", high-end music magazines such as "Q" and "Bang!" to ultra-hip magazines such as "Dazed and Confused". Their fans include teenagers, older serious rock-music fans and high-spending late-twenty-somethings nostalgic for the guitar-rock of their youth. This title details the band's early days as gigging musicians right through to their trajectory towards superstardom and critical acclaim and their experiences "breaking" America, illustrated throughout with shots of this hard-rocking, technicolour band.
