British spandex loving rockers The Darkness have definitely shown their worth on record, and done their dues on the road, and now they’ve combined those two crafts together with the announcement of a forthcoming live album.
The simply and aptly titled record, ‘Live At Hammersmith’, was recorded at the band’s London date of extensive Tour De Prance headline tour, and is scheduled for release on June 15th 2018 through Cooking Vinyl.
Regarding the live album, frontman Justin Hawkins 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.”
