GUESS WHO’S BACK? DANKO JONES RETURN WITH NEW, HIGH VOLTAGE SONG14th April 2023 0 By John Deaux
The undisputed kings of balls-out rock ’n’ roll, DANKO JONES have announced the release of their eleventh studio album, entitled Electric Sounds, via AFM Records on September 15th, 2023. The three-man squad, dedicated to the noble art of riffs, melodies, and life-affirming rock anthems, return to provide maximum satisfaction and serve up all the Electric Sounds you could possibly need!
With Electric Sounds, Toronto’s archbishops of amplification prove that even a global pandemic couldn’t stop DANKO JONES. As first album single “Guess Who’s Back” showcases, 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.

“Not working for two years really felt like touring rock bands were being put out to pasture,” recalls Danko. “But I guess that only made us try harder. We were still able to record and release an album during the pandemic (Power Trio, 2021). We toured as soon as we were allowed. Now that Electric Sounds is getting released, it doesn’t feel like we missed a beat. During the pandemic, we moved away from each other. JC lives in Finland and Rich lives in Prince Edward Island. So the writing for this band has changed. We used to bash out ideas in our rehearsal place, day after day, but it’s more about sending files back and forth now. However, last summer, while on tour, we did manage to jam out ideas in a rehearsal room in Berlin for a few days. Out of those jams came the nubs for five songs…”
Five songs have since been expanded to eleven new DANKO JONES songs, and 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. No band has ever sounded more ready to hit the road than the pumped-up threesome showcased on the hell-for-leather ragers featured on their forthcoming album.
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).
