Bear with The Darkness for a morality tale for our times
The Darkness announce the details of the first single release from their eagerly awaited third album with an over the top video premiered worldwide on Thursday 28th June 2012. ‘Everybody Have A Good Time’ is a raucous, fists in the air anthem which showcases the band at their classic rock sing-a-long best, and gives a flavour of the tasty new album ‘Hot Cakes’.
