“Hot Cakes,” the reunited group’s third studio album, was produced by the band's Justin and Dan Hawkins with longtime collaborator Nick Brine and mixed by Bob Ezrin.

Since The Darkness resumed active service a year ago on the main stage of 2011's Download festival with their original lineup, the British group have completed sold-out tours of the U.K. and North America; were featured in a Superbowl ad (broadcast to over 100 million viewers in the tense fourth quarter of the game); finished recording "Hot Cakes" and released a free teaser track and video, "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us."

The Darkness play shows in Germany this week before kicking off a series of UK dates on Saturday in London.
