Marking the start of a sensational new era, Easter Is Cancelled is the first ever concept album from The Darkness. The ten-track album examines the role of the musician in the barbarous culture of the world today, and their almost divine responsibility to challenge the establishment – something that most rock’n’roll artists seem to have given up on in favour of easy celebrity. And yet at the heart of this tale is love, loss and heartbreak, where redemption is ultimately found in the brotherhood of band friendship and the power of the guitar, as brought full circle in the glorious album closer ‘We Are The Guitar Men’.
Justin explains, “At the end of days, humankind must consider the essential truths of existence. The Darkness, your vanguard in life’s journey, have stared into the abyss. The observations we bring from the edge are set out in a new record album, titled ‘Easter is Cancelled’.
“Easter Is Cancelled often sounds like it could conquer US radio as comprehensively as Def Leppard’s Hysteria (see Live Till I Die and Heart Explodes)”– Mojo 3*
“This is the closest the band have ever come to equaling the glam rock genius of their 2003 emergence” – Record Collector 4*
