THE DARKNESS: ‘Open Fire’ Video Premiere

April 24, 2015

The Darkness has released the video for “Open Fire”, taken from the band’s fourth album, “Last Of Our Kind” (out June 1). The album was written in Ireland and produced by The Darkness guitarist Dan Hawkins.


The follow-up to 2012’s “Hot Cakes” was recorded at Leeders Farm Studio in Norfolk, owned by Dan Hawkins.

Drummer Emily Dolan Davies, who made her live debut with The Darkness in early March, has already left the band to pursue “new projects.” The group says in a statement: “We part ways with fond farewells. Emily played a huge part in the recording of our new album ‘Last Of Our Kind’ and makes a final appearance in the video for our single ‘Open Fire’… Good luck, Emily!”

“Last of Our Kind” will be released on limited-edition color vinyl, compact disc and as a digital download.
