Justin HawkinsEx-Darkness member Frankie Poullain has launched an attack on his former band’s latest single.

The dumped bassist believes that in tackling drugs ‘One Way Ticket’ “insults” people with narcotics addictions.

He ranted: “As for Justin’s claim the song is all about redemption, it’s hardly Marvin Gaye or Bob Marley now, is it? I think it’s insulting to people with real difficulties.”

Speaking about Justin Hawkins’ character, he continued to the nme: “Justin? A mega megalomaniac? No, not really, he’s just a victim of the lifestyle.

“Unless you were in the druggy clique or the fawning circle of ass-kissers, you’d find yourself persona non grata. Hence I’m now a free agent.”

And you don’t sound bitter at all do you Frankie?
