With just six weeks left until the release of their highly anticipated new album, "A Rock Supreme", the acclaimed Canadian hard rock group DANKO JONES has unveiled a fourth song from the record — its infectious opening track, "I'm In A Band".
In addition to setting the tone perfectly for the 11-track, all-killer/no-filler "A Rock Supreme", "I'm In A Band" is an autobiographical mission statement that aptly captures front man Danko Jones's limitless passion for all things rock from its opening words: "I'm in a band, and I love it / All I want to do is play my guitar and rock and roll." The song can now be streamed on Spotify, Apple Music and other digital platforms.
"A Rock Supreme" was produced by GGGarth Richardson (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, RISE AGAINST, BIFFY CLYRO) and is due out April 26 via M-Theory Audio (U.S.), Rise Above (U.K.), Indica (Canada, AU, NZ) and AFM (rest of the world).
DANKO JONES — whose namesake frontman contributed guest vocals to VOLBEAT's 2017 #1 Active Rock hit "Black Rose", a song he performed live with the group at their stadium show in Denmark (a show that was released as the DVD/Blu-ray "Let's Boogie! Live From Telia Parken") — has made a name for itself over the years as a must-see live band during memorable tours with the likes of GUNS N' ROSES, MOTÖRHEAD and CLUTCH.
The group's last album, 2017's "Wild Cat", cracked the sales charts in Canada and eight European territories, achieving the group's highest chart positions yet in Germany, France, Belgium and Switzerland. Upon its release, lead single "My Little RNR" became one of the fastest-streaming songs of the band's career and has since become a live staple.
Over the years, DANKO JONES has earned extensive praise for its visceral live shows and attitudinal, libidinous rock. The group's best-known material includes "Had Enough", which earned the group their first gold and platinum singles in Sweden and has racked up more than 13 million Spotify streams; "Gonna Be A Fight Tonight", which WWE used as the official theme song of the 2015 Royal Rumble; and "Lovercall", its first of seven singles to crack the U.S. Active Rock Top 40.
