Danko Jones return to Los Angeles on December 9th for a show at The Troubadour. On December 3rd, they'll perform at the Hunnypot Radio & Chopperhead Magazine party at The Highlands in Hollywood; the show is free and open to the public. Next up in January, the group joins Guns N' Roses for a cross-country trek wrapping February 4th.
The powerful trio which SPIN magazine hailed as a "stunningly direct blues/hard rock/punk hybrid" (August 2009) are supporting the release of their new CD "Never Too Loud," released September 8th via Bad Taste Records/Caroline. For the new album, the group -- Danko Jones (lead vocals/guitars), John Calabrese (bass), Dan Cornelius (drums) -- teamed with Grammy Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Coheed & Cambria, Stone Sour, Velvet Revolver).
Danko Jones have been invited to perform the NHL post-game concert series for the Tampa Bay Lightning November 25th at the St. Pete Times Forum. The show takes place in the outdoor plaza following the game between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Toronto Maple Leafs.
The group's buzzed-about first single "Code of the Road" is featured on the Saw VI soundtrack (Trustkill Records). The song (about the endless ups and downs of touring) also can be heard in EA's new racing game Need for Speed: Nitro (available for Wii and Nintendo DS) as well as in commercials for the game in the UK, France Austria and Switzerland. The video for "Code of the Road" -- featuring comedian Jim Florentine ("Crank Yankers," "That Metal Show") as the bus driver -- is currently being shown daily in over 350 Harley-Davidson locations across the US and at over 1000 sports clubs nationwide through ClubCom.
Danko Jones will also appear in the forthcoming film Saxon Heavy Metal Thunder: The Movie, a documentary about British heavy metallers Saxon. The film will also feature guest appearances from Metallica's Lars Ulrich, Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, Fast Eddie Clarke and others.
