Currently travelling the length and breadth of the UK on their longest tour to date, The Darkness have also announced details of a brand new track and a special edition of their third album 'Hot Cakes'.

'The Horn is available immediately digitally at all good retailers and was recorded at The Hawk's Nest, guitarist Dan Hawkins' studio in Norfolk. There will also be a limited edition 7" picture disc available (500 copies) through the band's website - 'The Horn' is backed with a new recording of their number two single 'Christmas Time, (Don't Let The Bells End)' and features the Seagull Theatre Train Children's Choir from Lowestoft.

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
