Rock band The Darkness have made a documentary, which heads to cinemas for one night only in November. Here are the details.

The Darkness shot to fame in 2003 following the release of their debut album Permission To Land (the image at the top of this non-AI-written article – and isn’t it weird how many sites are writing their news with AI? – comes from the cover of that album).

To celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary, a documentary about the band is heading to cinemas for one night only on the 9th November.

From what is arguably their signature tune I Believe In A Thing Called Love, a song which among other things also soundtracked the second bout of fisticuffs between Hugh Grant and Colin Firth in Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, to festive favourite Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End), The Darkness have thus far written seven studio albums. Most of the original members, including brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins and bassist Frankie Poullain, actually remain in the band too, while Rufus Taylor is their drummer.

Directed by Simon Emmett, Welcome To The Darkness will chart their attempt to recapture their glory days after reforming in 2011, having split up in 2006.

Tickets are on sale at various cinemas now, and the film will be released on digital download and Blu-ray on the 4th December too. Pre-orders are expected to go live imminently.

The Darkness are about to embark on the Permission To Land 20th Anniversary Tour. You can find out more details on their official website right here.
