The Les Paul-wielding U.K. rockers band reunited in 2011 after originally parting company in 2006. They performed a comeback show at 2011’s Download Festival, but “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” is the first new material they have released in seven years.
The track is available as a free download from The Darkness’s official website. It is not confirmed whether “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us” will feature on the band’s next album, which The Darkness are currently completing in Nashville. It will be the third album of their career.
The band, fronted by brothers Justin and Dan Hawkins, will be on tour throughout the summer of 2012, including a spot at the Isle of Wight festival. The Darkness’s website also now has video of recent warm-up shows, including a guest cameo by Brian May of Queen fame.
