The Darkness Lose Another Member

(hennemusic) UK rockers The Darkness have announced the departure of drummer Emily Dolan Davies. He exit comes just a month after she made her live debut with the band.

"Sad to say our fantastic drummer Emily Dolan Davies is leaving for new projects, and so we part ways with fond farewells," says the group. "Emily played a huge part in the recording of our new album 'Last of Our Kind' and makes a final appearance in the video for our single 'Open Fire' which is coming to a screen near you soon Good luck Emily!"

Davies replaced original drummer Ed Graham after a split last fall; she recorded the band's fourth album and made her live debut with The Darkness at an intimate secret show March 4 on Ireland's Valentia Island as part of a 10-show run across the country to road test their new material.

When originally announcing her addition to the lineup, frontman Justin Hawkins described Dolan as "a hard hitter. She's got the chops and the attitude that you need to be The Darkness' drummer. She also makes us feel like dirty old men." Read more here.
