The Darkness release video for new song “Solid Gold”
UK rockers The Darkness have released a video for their new song entitled “Solid Gold” from their upcoming new studio album Pinewood Smile, which will be released on October 6, 2017.
Publicity Please‘s press release states in part (with slight edits):
“Self-proclaimed rock legends The Darkness – Justin Hawkins (vocals / guitar), Dan Hawkins (guitar), Frankie Poullain (bass), Rufus Tiger Taylor (drums) – have just released the video for their expletive-drenched new single “Solid Gold” from forthcoming album Pinewood Smile due out October 6th via Cooking Vinyl.
Frontman Justin Hawkins announces, “We have written this song to reassure you all that having now released more music in the period after our well-publicized hiatus than in the period before it, we have no intention whatsoever of stopping. Hence the lyric ‘We’re never gonna stop…Shitting out solid gold.’ Barring any unforeseen circumstances, The Darkness will always be here to delight and beguile. You’re welcome.”
An absolute monster of a rock song, “Solid Gold” takes no prisoners whatsoever, aiming directly at the music industry and addressing record companies, egos and the insincerity that comes with it. It will make uncomfortable listening for A&R execs everywhere…
“Solid Gold” follows the release of the glorious, hard-rockin’, autobiographical lead single “All The Pretty Girls.” Both singles are available on all streaming platforms and also available for download with pre-orders of the album for the instant gratification of fans.
Pinewood Smile finds The Darkness in electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious, humorous and downright brilliant songs of their career. The album is also the first to feature the drumming and vocal talents of new band member Rufus Tiger Taylor, son of Queen legend Roger Taylor, who shares vocal duties with Justin on two tracks.
Fresh off touring with Guns N’ Roses and headlining European summer festivals, The Darkness will celebrate the release of Pinewood Smile touring extensively at the end of the year in the UK and unleashing their power on U.S. stages in 2018. Details coming soon.”
