Are you ready to rock? Do you want a good time? Do you want to get high? If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then the undisputed kings of balls-out rock ’n’ roll are back to provide maximum satisfaction. An elite, three-man squad, dedicated to the noble art of riffs, melodies, and life-affirming rock anthems, DANKO JONES are ready to serve up all the Electric Sounds you could possibly need!
Only one week to go until DANKO JONES will release their hotly-anticipated, eleventh studio album! The trio’s forthcoming banger, Electric Sounds, will be out on September 15, 2023 via AFM Records and promises to have the instant sound and feel of a classic. Pre-order your copy of this must-have DANKO JONES album – and one that belongs into every well-sorted rock record collection – HERE!
After topping international radio charts with “Guess Who’s Back”, their current infectious single “Good Time” crash landed into the radio charts just as quickly. Now, the band has shared a hilarious music video for new single “Get High?”, featuring Damian Abraham of Fucked Up!
“With the legalisation of marijuana, it was inevitable a song like “Get High?” would be birthed,” comments charismatic frontman Danko about the band’s new single. “I just didn’t know it would be our band that penned the anthem for potheads everywhere. Damian Abraham of Fucked Up even joins us to answer my question – Do You Wanna Get High? His answer is “yes”.”

Toronto’s archbishops of amplification prove that even a global pandemic couldn’t stop DANKO JONES. From the chest-out chutzpah of the opening “Guess Who’s Back” and the muscular new wave strut of “Good Time”, to the title track’s promise to “smash a thousand guitars tonight!” or the new pothead’s anthem “Get High?”, Electric Sounds is a deceptively diverse affair. Meanwhile, no band has ever sounded more ready to hit the road than the pumped-up threesome showcased on its hell-for-leather, new rager. Electric Sounds was produced by Eric Ratz, and guest spots from Tyler Stewart (Barenaked Ladies) on “She’s My Baby”, Damian Abraham of Fucked Up on “Get High?” and guitarist Daniel Dekay (from Canadian thrash legends Exciter) on “Electric Sounds” complete the picture with a snotty flourish.
DANKO JONES return for a clutch of UK headline dates in December 2023, as part of a wider European trek. Armed with this collection of brand new bangers, DANKO JONES are on a renewed mission to rock the living shit-lights out of anyone and everyone that wants to join the party.
In addition, DANKO JONES are confirmed as main support on Sunday 3rd December at the rifftastic extravaganza that is Planet Rockstock, taking place in Trecco Bay, South Wales and marking its10th anniversary this year. Tickets for that event are on sale now.
ABOUT DANKO JONES
Formed in Toronto, Canada in 1996, DANKO JONES have seen and done just about everything over the last quarter of a century. Powered by a DIY punk rock spirit, and inspired by the good, great, and grotesque of electrified rock ‘n’ roll, they have steadily built a colossal international fan base and become one of the most acclaimed live bands around, embraced by everyone from mainstream radio-rock fans to diehard metalheads. Along the way, they have released ten widely praised studio albums, generating a peerless repertoire of fists-in-the-air crowd-pleasers into the bargain.
From the spiky blues of 2002’s Born A Lion and the crazed power-pop of its follow-up We Sweat Blood (2003), to the priapic perfection of 2010’s Below The Belt, the band’s knack for hitting rock’s sweet spot has never wavered. Over the last decade, DANKO JONES have visibly moved up a few gears. Since frontman Danko and bassist JC joined forced with drummer Rich Knox, the band’s creative fire has blazed more brightly than ever. A succession of all-killer, no-filler albums – Fire Music, Wild Cat, A Rock Supreme, Power Trio – has led to even more gung-ho touring and unapologetic service to the rock cause, with their live chops cleaved razor sharp on stints with Guns N Roses, Motörhead, and Volbeat as well as opening up for icons like The Rolling Stones and Ozzy Osbourne. The UK bore early witness to what’s forthcoming with a brief visit in early 2023 alongside rock disciples Black Stone Cherry and The Darkness.
Now, with the release of their blistering eleventh album Electric Sounds set for September 15th, 2023, DANKO JONES are poised to reaffirm exactly why they’re so beloved in the global rock community all over again.
DANKO JONES is: Danko Jones – Vocals/Guitar, John Calabrese – Bass, and Rich Knox – Drums.
