Kicking Off On March 29 In LA; Album Pinewood Smile Out October 6th

England’s most distinctive, multiple award-winning, platinum-selling, hugely entertaining rock gods and one-time saviors of rock n’ roll turned international pleasures THE DARKNESS - Justin Hawkins (vocals / guitar), Dan Hawkins (guitar), Frankie Poullain (bass), Rufus Tiger Taylor (drums) – have announced the North American leg of Tour de Prance, kicking off on March 29, 2018 in Los Angeles at The Fonda Theatre and wrapping in Dallas on May 2nd at South Side Music Hall. THE DARKNESS will ignite stages across the land to celebrate their fifth album Pinewood Smile, due out October 6th via Cooking Vinyl.

Tickets for Tour de Prance go on sale Friday, September 29th @10am local times. Visit www.thedarknesslive.com for further information.

Written in Putney and recorded in Cornwall, England, Pinewood Smile was produced by Grammy Award-winning Adrian Bushby (FOO FIGHTERS, MUSE). The album finds THE DARKNESS in electrifying form, delivering some of the most sharp-witted, infectious, humorous and downright brilliant songs of their career. Pinewood Smile also features the drumming and vocal talents of gorgeous new band member Rufus Tiger Taylor, son of QUEEN legend Roger Taylor.

In addition to the glorious, hard-rocking, autobiographical album opener “All The Pretty Girls” that intellectually examines the fact that when you’re a rock star you get a lot of attention from ladies and discussing the ethical conundrums that come with that, the album boasts the swashbuckling "Buccaneers Of Hispaniola", the expletive-strewn howl of frustration that is "Southern Trains", the hugely emotional "Why Don’t The Beautiful Cry?" the globally anthemic "Japanese Prisoner Of Love" and the ode to pumping out smash hit after smash hit "Solid Gold" in which THE DARKNESS address the turbulent nature of the music industry and how they have enjoyed its flamboyant highs and spectacular lows.

"All The Pretty Girls”, "Solid Gold" and “Southern Trains” are available across all streaming platforms and via download with pre-orders of the album.
