The other day it was reported that 80s hair rock revivalists The Darkness were planning a comeback, with a new website being thrown up, complete with the bands logo, and yesterday it was confirmed that Justin Hawkins and the gang will be reuniting, bringing joy to those who like watching balding, middle aged men prance around in spandex.

The group have reformed in the original line-up, and will be playing the Download Festival in Donnington, as well as recording a new album. Hawkins himself expressed his joy at the amount of positive messages from fans he recieved on Twitter, as was generally all gloopy.

‘Thanks for all the lovely messages of support. I'm gobsmacked and overwhelmed by all the positivity in and around The Darkness!’
