Armed with this collection of brand new bangers, DANKO JONES launch themselves into 2023 on a renewed mission to rock the living shit-lights out of anyone and everyone that wants to join the party.
Frontman Danko declares, “We love touring in the UK and thankfully we are coming back! What’s not to love when you play in front of crowds that know their rock and know how to rock out?! Every day is just one more day we have to patiently get through until the tour starts. I think you can tell I’m already very ready to do this. Give me a guitar and get me to the stage NOW!“

Toronto’s archbishops of amplification prove that even a global pandemic couldn’t stop DANKO JONES. As first album single “Guess Who’s Back” clearly displays, it’s just made them even more unstoppable. “Guess Who’s Back is not only the lead-off track to our new album, Electric Sounds, it’s also the imperative sentence everyone is begging to answer – Danko Jones!” quips charismatic frontman Danko.
Electric Sounds promises to have the instant sound and feel of a classic. With no need to reinvent the wheel, the group have further honed and refined their craft – always at full volume – although Electric Sounds is a deceptively diverse affair. Electric Sounds was produced by Eric Ratz, and features guest spots from Tyler Stewart (Barenaked Ladies), Damian Abraham (Fucked Up) and guitarist Daniel Dekay (from Canadian thrash legends Exciter).

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.
