British glam rockers The Darkness are back with their fifth studio album titled Pinewood Smile, released via Cooking Vinyl on October 6th, 2017. In support of the album, The Darkness will be heading out on tour cross country including cities like New York and New Jersey.

Pinewood Smile was produced by Grammy Award-winning Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse) and like previous releases displays the humor and catchy glam rock melodies the band is loved for. Yahoo! raves, The Darkness are “back with an album of guitar-shreddery and Bic-flicking badassery,” Shockwave Magazine praises, Pinewood Smile is “Downright brilliant,” New Noise Magazine calls it “Completely mind-blowing” and Metal Nexus swoons, “The songs are expertly crafted nuggets of kick-ass rock and roll, stuffed to bursting with beefy riffs, intricate melodies, and cocksure swagger.” Kerrang!MojoQPlanet RockThe Sun and Daily Mail give the album a perfect 4-Star rating.
