Darkness album troubles
16:30 18 March 2005
The Darkness star Justin Hawkins has confessed the band's second album is proving impossible to record.
The glam rockers shot to fame in 2003 with their debut album 'Permission to Land' which saw them playing sell-out concerts around the UK.
But Hawkins admits writing new material is proving to be a struggle, and so far the band have only recorded two songs for the long-awaited second album, due for release in September.
However, the band is making more progress deciding on a title for the CD.
Justin said: "The rest of the band want to call it 'Frottage' - a French word for sexually rubbing yourself against someone else. But I think 'The Painstaking Second Album' might be more appropriate.'"
The singer was speaking at the unveiling of a waxwork model of himself at Madam Tussaud's museum in London.
Justin, who celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday (17.03.05), described the model as "the ultimate birthday present" and very flattering.
He said: "They have been very flattering in certain areas."(c) BANG Media International
