It’s long been clear that the Canadian hard rock trio DANKO JONES lives and breathes – and even sweats and bleeds – rock n’ roll. The group’s namesake front man loves to talk about it (check out his long-running “The Official Danko Jones Podcast” for proof); he loves to write about it (as his new book, I’ve Got Something To Say: 10 Years of Rock and Roll Ramblings, pointedly captures); and he loves to sing about it, as evidenced by a number of the group’s best-loved songs (I Gotta Rock, Rock Shit Hot, Do You Wanna Rock, etc.). He has just released new single Dance Dance Dance online and in all good online stores and outlets and the new album is available for pre-order now at iTunes, Apple Music, JB Hi-Fi and Google Play!
On the group’s new album, the aptly-titled A Rock Supreme, Danko Jones – the man and the band – up the ante considerably from the moment the very first words blast from the speakers: I’m in a band, and I love it / All I want to do is play my guitar and rock and roll. There’s no midlife crisis here, no softening with age, no signs of self-doubt – just 11 fist-pumping (literally, in the case of Fists Up High) jolts of sonic adrenaline with nary a ballad in sight.
“‘A Rock Supreme’ is the name of our new studio album. There are 11 songs on it, and they’re all fantastic,” says Jones. “Trust me – we know what we’re doing when it comes to hard rock.”
Produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Biffy Clyro) and featuring cover artwork by Ulf Lunden (Graveyard, Europe, Bombus), A Rock Supreme – which is available now for pre-order – will be released on April 26 via M-Theory Audio (U.S.), Rise Above (UK), Indica (Canada, AU, NZ) and AFM (rest of the world). All digital pre-orders include three instant downloads – the previously released singles We’re Crazy and Burn In Hell, and the newly-released Dance Dance Dance, which can now be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and other digital platforms.
DANKO JONES’ new single Dance Dance Dance is out now on all digital outlets and new album A Rock Supreme is out April 26 through Indica in Australia and New Zealand. Pre-Orders are available now at now at iTunes, Apple Music, JB Hi-Fi and Google Play!
