The Darkness reform, plus more bands added to Download

It had been rumoured for a while, Were the Darkness going to reform for Download festival to snap up the sub-headliner spot on Friday underneath Def Leppard?

Fans were kept guessing by a few denials from the Download camp, but quietly The Darkness created a new website, a Facebook and Twitter page. All signs were looking good.

Last night on the Radio 1 Rock show it was announced that the original line up of The Darkness WILL play Download this year.

Also added to the bill were the following:

Funeral For a Friend
Plain White T's
Framing Hanley
Hydro Da Hero

The Down load organizers are very excited about a Darkness reunion and no doubt Donington will be rocking to the sounds of 'I believe in the a thing called love' this June.
