Rufus said he was "filming all day" in his recent Instagram post. I'm sure its for The Darkness. Any guess on first single?

I reckon it's a song we haven't heard yet. Or at least I hope so. :P

If my choice was limited to 5 tracks previously played live, my bet would be on "All The Pretty Girls". It's short, a little bit generic, but nevertheless catchy. It's possibly an album opener (http://www.thedarknesslive.com/wp-conte ... 00x500.jpg).

Solid Gold is being played live at every single show, but lyrics-wise it's not a good single material. It's based on one riff played over and over again, which gets boring after a few listens, so I don't want it to be the first single.

So I was right :D

All The Pretty girls is ok, but it's not a song that will make them famous again... :P But I'll give it a few more listens and try to change my mind :)

Yeah, unless the studio recording adds some excellent melodies left out of the live version... I don't understand how artists with such an excellent melodic sense can pick their worst songs as singles.

I wonder if they filmed ATPG video and going to release it later? Because it appears today on Instagram they were filming the Solid Gold video...99% sure.

Thanks for posting! :)

Honestly, I'm not a big fan of music videos which are just shots of the singer / band but this one was quite funny. I really liked Dan guitar-surfing and Rufus under attack. :lol:

Is it just me or they look better and younger than in Open Fire and LOOK?

Oh and that scene at 1:12 should have been the album cover.

Yeah, Justin looked anorexic in those videos and I hated that greasy twirled mustache. He definitely looks better now.

At first, I got a vibe of LIOAF from the opening shot of Frankie playing on the cilff edge. I like that it has the same high quality camerawork and scenic setting as LIOAF and Open Fire. The tractor stuff was pretty funny.

My biggest dislike is the shots of Justin mouthing the lyrics in a strangely disinterested way.

I already think Solid Gold will be a better video, and not just because it's a better song.

Edit: I just noticed Justin licking Frankie's bass at 1:15, LOL

The video is fine.

But it has me worried. Why? Between reusing graphics from 2 years ago, the lower budget look of things lately, this video having a lot lower production value than the last batch of music videos and the cheaply done album cover - part of me is worried if The Darkness are really low on money, these days.

I'm not trying to sound sour - I want them to be as successful as possible. I'm just worried they're not pulling in enough cash these days which can affect them going forward.

I was thinking the same thing...

In my opinion this is the worst TD video, I like the song, maybe the band's suffering some financial problems and they have a low budget or maybe the people who works for them in this visual stuff are not so good, I don't know. But you can see clearly the difference between the music videos from LOOK and this one. The LOOK's videos are superior

I really love Dan's surfing scenes

Glad I'm not alone in wondering this, then. I mean - I hope I'm wrong (I'm sure you do, too).

But it's not even that Last of Our Kind's videos were just better - they had a better, higher production/concepts. Which is odd because they were on their own label, too (whereas this time they're signed, am I correct?) so they didn't have a record company fronting them money.

I don't think this is a bad video - it's a very fun, very Darkness video. But a lot of this last year has been a stark contrast/downgrade in the visual department. Graphics, promotional materials, album covers, etc. It's all been low budget - which is a bit of a red flag for me.

So yeah, troublesome. I hope things are still okay financially because I want them to keep going for years to come.

If they're not low on finances and these design choices are deliberate...well, I have to question what they're doing lately.
:lol:

Yes, I hope I'm wrong too... We are just saying our opinions, the band will have my support no matter what :)

Absolutely.

I just have some things I've seen with their direction/decisions that give me some serious pause, that's all.

What makes you say lower production value? I mean, if the concept was to have a junky tractor in the video, not much you can do to make that look really cool. Otherwise, the video quality is high, lighting is great, band looks great, settings are quite nice.

Worse than EHAGT with the dancing bear?

I definitely think Open Fire had a better concept, but the title track video was absolute garbage.
