England’s most distinctive, multiple award-winning, platinum-selling, hugely entertaining rock gods The Darkness have announced the release of their live album The Darkness – Live At Hammersmith, out on June 15th 2018 through Cooking Vinyl.

To mark the live album announcement, The Darkness have made two songs from the album available for free download with pre-orders of the live album. This includes the swashbuckling live version of ‘Buccaneers Of Hispaniola’, one of the highlights from Pinewood Smile, and their award-winning smash hit ‘I Believe In A Thing Called Love’, taken from their chart topping, 4x platinum selling debut album Permission To Land.

The album captures The Darkness on sterling form at their iconic London headline show at the Eventim Hammersmith Apollo in December last year. In true Darkness spandex-clad fashion it featured huge riffs, mighty bass faces, seismic drumming, hair raising falsetto, Justin Hawkins acrobatics, gigantic disco balls and a whole lotta pyro.

The Darkness – Live At Hammersmith is the band’s first live album across all formats and spans their spectacular back catalogue of five albums across 19 incendiary tracks.

Regarding the live album Justin says, “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 headlined Hammersmith as part of their extensive Tour De Prance, in support of their latest critically acclaimed Top 10 album Pinewood Smile. The tour saw the band sell out shows across the UK and Europe last year. They are currently on a mammoth 27-date tour of the US, Canada and Mexico.

Also available to purchase now is the band’s most recent album Pinewood Smile, available as a limited special offer across a range of signed and unsigned formats.
