The Darkness Guitarist Sticking To Old School

(Classic Rock) The Darkness guitarist Dan Hawkins feels an old-school approach to music is so important to the band that if they ever abandon it, he'd leave. They've just released fourth album The Last Of Our Kind, which he produced, while brother Justin Hawkins arranged the song order.

Dan tells UCR: "We always will be an old-school album band. We've always thought that way of a side one and side two when putting it all together. We want to push that even more.

"There's been some misguided management, slightly megalomaniac in certain areas, especially on the last album. They kept trying to ram the idea of digital content to the point where someone said to me, 'Why are you even bothering with a track listing?'

"They were saying no one listens to things that way anymore. To me, if we're not an albums band, I don't want in." Read more here.
