Lightbulb Film Distribution have announced that Welcome to The Darkness, a warts and all feature-length documentary about The Darkness, is coming to UK & Ireland cinemas on November 9th.
In 2003, British rockers The Darkness took the world by storm with their smash hit single ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’ and the award-winning, chart-topping, multi-platinum debut album Permission to Land. Then, at the height of their fame in 2006, the band split up and
fell off the music radar.
Nine years later, director and renowned celebrity portrait photographer, 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, Welcome to The Darkness 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, Welcome to The Darkness is a tongue-in-cheek reflection on fame, failure, friendship and forgiveness. At its heart, 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.
Welcome To The Darkness will be in cinemas for ONE NIGHT ONLY on November 9th.
