THE DARKNESS Receive Inspiration From FREDDIE MERCURY is reporting that THE DARKNESS have started work on the follow-up to "Permission to Land" with a little bit of inspiration from the late Freddie Mercury. The band are currently working in the same studio in which QUEEN recorded "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Singer Justin Hawkins said: “Studio stuff is going well. It's about the biggest drum sound you'll ever hear on a rock record and that's all there is to it at the moment. We're in the same studio that they recorded 'Bohemian Rhapsody' in, so I'm using Freddie's piano and stuff.”

He added: "All of it’s sounding very, very good. The songs are strong and we're not gonna rush it, so don't hold your breath. All the drums are done now, some of the piano, and some of the guitars, but obviously my part goes on last. I get the glory run."
