The Darkness album nearly complete

Hair metal and c*ck rock fans, rejoice! The Darkness have announced that they have nearly completed their comeback album, which will send anyone who was at university in 2003 absolute potty with anticipation.

Lead singer Justin Hawkins spoke to Guitar Magazine about the record, using a series of quite silly analogies, and revealed that it's influenced by the usual suspects. It sounds better than those moody grunge bands, at least.

'To use one analogy, the house is built,' he said. 'And it's a lovely house. How we decorate it is the next conundrum. We're getting to the stage where it's like, how much do we want to blow it?

'We could do all those big Queen arrangements, it's just whether we want to. Do you overblow it? Do you underblow it? Do you cup the sack while administering said b**wjob? Do you pop a finger up the arse? We have to decide how the happy ending goes.

'Home is where the heart is. When you write songs, you need a grounding to set the stories in. There's a lot about small-town life. The album has songs about stuff that's happened to us in the town. As for influences, it's AC/DC, Queen, Aerosmith, et cetera.'
