Dark Room is the fourth studio by Australian rock band The Angels, originally released in June 1980 via Epic Records.

The Angels are an Australian rock band that formed in Adelaide in 1974 as The Keystone Angels by John Brewster on rhythm guitar and vocals, his brother Rick Brewster on lead guitar and vocals, and Bernard "Doc" Neeson on lead vocals and guitar. They were later joined by Graham "Buzz" Bidstrup on drums and vocals, and Chris Bailey on bass guitar and vocals.

Their breakthrough came after signing a recording deal with Alberts and the production team of Vanda and Young, who produced their first hit single “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” (1976), and their debut album The Angels (1977). Their second album Face To Face (1978) was a huge commercial success in Australia, followed by their third LP No Exit (1979), which peaked at #8 on the Australian Albums charts.

The Angels signed a new recording contract with CBS Records and released their fourth album Dark Room through the Epic Records label. The album was recorded at Paradise & Alberts Studios in Sydney and Westlake Audio in Los Angeles, and self produced by the Brewster brothers.

The first single released from the album was “No Secrets” which is a great song with a terrific melody and lyric. The song has later been recorded as an acoustic “unplugged” version by Doc Neeson and Missy Higgins, showcasing the quality of this song without the hard rock backing. This single reached #8 on the Australian singles charts. Two further singles were released “Poor Baby” and “Face The Day”.

The album peaked at #5 on the Australian albums chart and became their highest charting album in the US peaking at #133 on the US Billboard 200 Album charts.

Dark Room is a classic Australian rock album
