Fans of The Darkness can catch a glimpse of the band’s brand new album from today after Justin Hawkins and co. released lead single All The Pretty Girls.

And according to the man himself a failure to support the one-time arena behemoths in 2017 will lead to the collapse of popular culture.

Pinewood Smile, The Darkness’s fifth long player, will hit stores on October 6 and Hawkins said: “Why should anybody care? Because if you don’t, we’re fucked!

“History will remember us as the apathetic generation who negligently ushered in a dreadful dystopian age that may or may not come to be known as ‘The Rise of the Arseclowns’.

“We cannot allow this to continue! You may not give a shit about Brexit or Trump, but PLEASE…give a shit about The Darkness otherwise the last bastion of cultural sensibility will fall and our airwaves will be polluted by meaningless pop purveyed by arseholes and morons…oh wait!”

Pinewood Smile will be released via Cooking Vinyl and pre-orders of the album available now.

The Darkness will support their new record with an extensive UK headline tour kicking off in Southampton on November 23.
