FIVE years ago, Justin Hawkins was on top of the world. His band, The Darkness, had won Best British Group, Best British Rock Act and Best British Album at the Brits.

Later in 2004, they headlined T in the Park after David Bowie cancelled because of illness.

But after a stint in rehab with a drink and a cocaine problem that saw him spend £150,000 in three years on the drug, Justin is back.

"It's about staying positive in the face of adversity, isn't it?" concurs bassist Toby MacFarlaine, "And Lord knows we can all use a little of that right now!"

The quartet will also hit the road to support the single, and are completely chomping at the bit to get out there and start cracking skulls!

Snow, Sleet & Fried Cheese Sandwiches.

From Toby's Myspace blog:

"Lest we forget, of course, pints of sugary black tea, wintery walks around Norwich aided by the humble podcast, baths in the middle of the day and fairly regular “tweeting”.

These are the things that have filled my hours of late. The great ‘bugger all to do’ driving me ever closer to insipid and all encompassing drug use, be they prescription, involved in hot and cold drinks or just plain contraband. Of course, I rarely, if ever, take part in the latter. I’m not overtly morally opposed. I just choose to abstain from things that can turn a perfectly entertaining and engaging human being into a dullard with all the social skills of an adolescent sloth."
