The Darkness - New Video - Nothing's Gonna Stop Us!

The Darkness - Nothin'g Gonna Stop Us

The rebooted Darkness, with their original lineup of Justin Hawkins, Dan Hawkins, Frankie Poullain and Ed Graham have unveiled the new video for their 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Us' single. The video takes the form of an animation created by Thom Lessner and director Ted Passon.

Frontman Justin Hawkins told Rolling Stone, "The video turned out ace. I’ve always been a fan of Thom Lessner’s illustrations, so I was delighted when he and Ted Passon agreed to make it. They have really captured the vibe of the song."

The Darkness exploded onto the international rock scene when their debut album 'Permission To Land' and it's massive hit single, 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love' was released on 7th July 2003 but in the eight years since, they’ve been through an underappreciated second album, personnel change, drug problems, and a breakup - all accelerated by a particularly severe UK-media backlash.

According to Justin, the reunion is all about getting back to what made the band work in the first place and just after their Download Festival appearance was announced earlier in 2011 he told the BBC, "The main thing for us is to make sure that musically we turn the experience into something positive again. We’ve been remembering why it was so much fun in the first place, just four men making loud music in a room."
