After topping the radio charts with “Guess Who’s Back”, their current infectious single “Good Time” just started climbing the radio charts quickly. Now, the band has shared a hilarious music video for new single “Get High?”, featuring Damian Abraham of Fucked Up!
“With the legalization of marijuana, it was inevitable a song like “Get High?” would be birthed.” Says 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”.”
Formed in Toronto 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.
Armed with yet another stone cold classic, DANKO JONES are on a renewed mission to rock the living shit-lights out of anyone and everyone that wants to join the party. After 27 years of active service, the trio’s commitment and intensity continues to grow, and their popularity and prominence continues to follow an upward route.
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 (find all live dates listed below!) 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.
