The 'I Believe In A Thing Called Love' band have allegedly resolved their differences and agreed to work together as a band again.
Although no official statement has confirmed the reunion, a brand new official homepage - theactualdarkness.com, subtitled 'As Promised' - has been created online bearing the band's logo.
It is believed that a third album is in progress along with a calendar of festival appearances planned.
After quitting the band back in 2006, Justin Hawkins described the disbanding by telling The Sun: "I feel bad for the others, but I can't do it any more.
"I hit absolute rock bottom. I spent over £150,000 on cocaine in three years - a frightening amount. I was consuming up to five grams a day which cost me £1,000 a week, sometimes more.
"I became secretive, volatile and verbally abusive - a really unpleasant person to be around. There were lots of periods I don't even remember, blackouts."
Last year Hawkins laughed off rumours that the band were due to reform.
