Accountants venture into The Darkness

Even heavy metal bands need accountants. This time it's The Darkness who have turned to Clement Keys for business advice.

The band, which opened this year’s Glastonbury festival and has a hit single with the track ‘Growing on Me’, has enlisted the help of Michael Meakin, partner at the Birmingham-based firm.

Meakin takes care of financial planning, taxation compliance and auditing for all four members of the group, which hails from Lowestoft.

‘Our aim is to take care of financial issues so that The Darkness are free to devote their energies to their music and make their name in what can be a notoriously fickle business,’ Meakin said.
