VIDEO: The Darkness stream Pinewood Smile single Happiness

The Darkness are streaming a new animated video for “Happiness”, the latest single from their latest album, “Pinewood Smile.”

Created by Chicago’s Vitamin Pictures, the clip was directed by Daniel DelPurgatorio.

"'Happiness' is about seeing only the golden sand and overlooking the broken glass,” says frontman Justin Hawkins. “Hearing the waves crash and filtering out the grotesque cries of mating gulls. Smelling the distant odor of fresh chips and ignoring the stench of nearby dog s**t.

“Happiness is a choice. Choose The Darkness."

Produced by Adrian Bushby (Foo Fighters, Muse), “Pinewood Smile” was recorded in Cornwall, UK and delivers the group’s first record with drummer Rufus Taylor - son of Queen legend Roger – who joined the lineup two years ago after the departure of Emily Dolan Davies following her work on 2015’s “Last Of Our Kind.”

The Darkness are currently playing dates in support of “Pinewood Smile” on a fall European tour that will wrap up in Bristol, UK on December 14.
