British rock band The Darkness have confirmed they will
release their third studio album on 20 August 2012.‘Hot Cakes’ will be released was produced by
Justin and Dan Hawkins along with their long-time collaborator, Nick Brine and
mixed by Bob Ezrin.After six years of
impatient waiting, fans can expect a musical explosion of multi-platinum rock
riffs, pop hooks, and the best infectious choruses and balls-out stadium
anthems around. Speaking to NME previously about the album, Justin Hawkins
revealed that the record's first single will be titled 'Every Inch Of You' and
that half of the album will be "really old school AC/DC guitar rock".
He also said that the album will feature some "extreme metal". He
said: The first single is going to 'Every Inch Of You'. Half of the record is
really old school AC/DC guitar rock and some of it's a bit more luxurious and
layered, a bit like the first album. But there is also some more extreme metal
on it. It's a classic The Darkness album really. We always did take that approach
but on the last record we just carried on adding more and more stuff to
everything. Nobody stopped us and we just got carried away I think."
