The Darkness Premiere “Southern Trains” Video, Announce North American Tour

The Darkness have premiered a new video for their song “Southern Trains.” This song is from their new album “Pinewood Smile,” which will be released on October 6.

Justin Hawkins commented:

“This song has genuine realness in it, innit. Dan and I had to endure the Southern Trains ‘services’ during the making of this album. The only difference between a normal day on Southern Trains and a day when they’re all on strike, is that on strike day the ArseClownery is deliberate. They are utterly incapable of running a reliable service. Fact. The rest of the world is laughing at us. I hope this song goes some way towards facilitating change…”
