The Dark­ness 23 Novem­ber to 2 De­cem­ber Var­i­ous UK venues With new al­bum Pinewood Smile con­firm­ing the band’s com­mit­ment to rock con­tin­ues un­abated, we can’t help but won­der if the dy­namic be­tween The Dark­ness’s guitar-wield­ing Hawkins broth­ers has changed since their 2011 come­back. “I don’t take my­self quite as se­ri­ously this time around and he takes cer­tain el­e­ments a bit more se­ri­ously than he used to,” Dan Hawkins says of him and front­man Justin. “We have a new­found re­spect for the po­si­tion we’re in as well. Sus­tain­ing our life­style in this band and con­tin­u­ing to be able to do what we do is the most im­por­tant thing in our lives full stop. The most im­por­tant and pre­cious thing. And it didn’t used to be like that. There was an el­e­ment of re­sent­ment to how hard we were work­ing and what was hap­pen­ing. But that’s gone. It’s joy­ous at the mo­ment I would say.” www.thedark­nesslive.com
