The Darkness To Release “Live At Hammersmith” In June

The Darkness have announced that they will be releasing a new live album titled “Live At Hammersmith” on June 15. The effort features the band’s December 10, 2017 “Tour De Prance” show, which was held at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo in London. Frontman Justin Hawkins commented:

“The Darkness is untamed. It cannot be caged. Some very clever recording engineers have discovered a way to capture its essence; all that remains is for us to release it back into the wild. Life is about experiences, not possessions. This is your opportunity to possess the experience of The Darkness live, as perceived by your ears, leaving your eyes free to scan the road ahead for obstacles, or to watch Emmerdale with the sound off, or to mould clay, or to darn socks, or to look at the beautiful artwork in this magnificent gatefold. Release yourself into The Darkness ‘Live At Hammersmith’.”

The Darkness Premiere “Happiness” Video

The Darkness have premiered a new video for their song “Happiness.” This song is from their latest album “Pinewood Smile.”

Justin Hawkins commented:

“‘Happiness’ is about seeing only the golden sand and overlooking the broken glass. Hearing the waves crash and filtering out the grotesque cries of mating gulls. Smelling the distant odour of fresh chips and ignoring the stench of nearby dog shit. Happiness is a choice. Choose The Darkness.”

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…”
