Welcome to The Darkness

In 2003, British rockers The Darkness from Lowestoft took the world by storm with their smash hit single ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’. Then, at the height of their fame in 2006, the band split up and fell off the music radar. Nine years later, Simon Emmett, followed The Darkness on their long, rocky and hilarious comeback trail. From a small pub gig in the middle of nowhere with the ambition of performing at packed arena shows once again, it shows the stark reality of a “cult band” struggling to recapture former glory. With unprecedented access, unseen archive footage, and intimate interviews filmed over eight years, its a tongue-in-cheek reflection on fame, failure, friendship and forgiveness. This is a unique account of a band of brothers who are still haunted by the demons that ripped them apart. A band who can defiantly laugh in the face of adversities in their ultimate quest for happiness and redemption.
