The acclaimed Canadian hard rock trio DANKO JONES – who have shared the stage with rock legends such as Guns N’ Roses, Motörhead, Ozzy Osbourne and The Rolling Stones, and whose namesake front man contributed guest vocals on Volbeat‘s recent #1 Active Rock hit “Black Rose” – has released a new single, “We’re Crazy.” The song, produced by Gggarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biffy Clyro, Rise Against), can be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and other digital platforms.
“We’re Crazy” marks the first taste of DANKO JONES’ forthcoming, as-yet-untitled new album, which will be released in the spring via AFM (M-Theory Audio (U.S.), Rise Above (UK), Indica (Canada, AU, NZ). The track – which the group has performed live in recent months during appearances at major European festivals such as Summer Breeze and Copenhell – was recorded with Richardson earlier this year. The group is currently tracking additional material with the famed producer at The Farm Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia. Jones said:
“We’ve got songs that are kicking my ass so hard, I can’t wait to lay them down. Whip out the Prep H, ’cause we’re all out of bubble gum!”
DANKO JONES has also confirmed their first tour of 2019, which will see the group headline throughout the Western United States with support from Nashville Pussy and Prima Donna.
DANKO JONES’ latest album, 2017’s “Wild Cat,” (for our review go here) cracked the sales charts in Canada and eight European territories, achieving the group’s highest chart positions yet in Germany, France, Belgium and Switzerland. Upon its release, lead single “My Little RNR” became one of the fastest-streaming songs of the band’s career and has since become a live staple.
Over the years, DANKO JONES has earned extensive praise for their visceral live shows and attitudinal, libidinous rock. The group’s best-known material includes “Had Enough,” which earned the group their first gold and platinum singles in Sweden and has racked up more than 13 million Spotify streams; “Gonna Be A Fight Tonight,” which WWE used as the official theme song of the 2015 Royal Rumble; and “Lovercall,” their first of seven singles to crack the U.S. Active Rock Top 40.
