English glam rock giants The Darkness are back in the states once again on the "Tour De Prance" and recently stopped by Royale in Boston, MA for a night of loud music and laughs. The Darkness keep it light on stage often taking time between songs to trade humorous jabs with their crowd or borrow some of their fans accessories like hats and sunglasses. The sold out Boston crowd ate up every minute of the show, singing along and laughing along as the night went by.
The Darkess are also currently touring in support of their latest album Pinewood Smile. Pinewood Smile boasts the glorious, hard-rocking, autobiographical “All the Pretty Girls”, the swashbuckling "Buccaneers Of Hispaniola," the expletive-strewn howl of frustration that is "Southern Trains," feel-good anthem “Happiness”, 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.
