The Skinny: UK-based rock icons, The Darkness, are busy running around the globe in support of their 4th and latest album, Last of Our Kind. A truly awesome release, the recording entered the UK charts at No. 12 on its release in June. While in Toronto, we scored some time with lead vocalist and lead/rhythm guitarist, Justin Hawkins. Hawkins was a pleasure to speak with and afforded us several videos, the first of which is this nerve-wracking Tales of Touring Terror clip.
