The Darkness Releases Live Version of 'Christmas Time (Don't Let the Bells End)': Listen


British rock band The Darkness is again for the vacations. This time round, they’re treating followers to a stay model of their “Christmas Time (Don’t Let the Bells End)” tune taped at their headlining Hammersmith Apollo present final yr.

The rerecording of the cheeky '03 vacation tune initially debuted as a part of the band’s Live at Hammersmith album in June.

The band is about to play the tune on The Great British Bake Off Christmas Special on Christmas Day.

“As Santa prepares to empty his sack into our collective Christmas chimney, and younger faces smeared with festive brandy butter gaze up expectantly, day-after-day is a fun-filled festive frolic of presents and pies,” frontman Justin Hawkins says in a press launch. “Much as you’ll get pleasure from your turkey leftovers on Boxing Day, we’re serving up Christmas Time (Don’t Let The Bells End) once more, this time in a tasty stay sauce. Hooray, eh? A rocking good Christmas to every one!”

In addition to opening for the Ramblin’ Man Fair in Maidstone, England, on June 19, The Darkness is about to start work on their sixth studio album within the new yr.
