DANKO JONES is pleased to announce that they will perform two shows in the U.S. this September in celebration of their new album, Rock And Roll Is Black And Blue, which hits stores in the United States on October 9th. The band will make a stop in Phoenix, AZ on September 26th at Pub Rock (sponsored by KUPD) and another stop in Las Vegas, NV at the House of Blues on September 27th, both stops including performances by Hoobastank and Hyro da Hero. The band will later embark on a European tour starting mid-October, and more U.S. dates will be announced shortly for the fall.
The story of Canada’s most misunderstood band will finally be told! DANKO JONES will release a new biography book, entitled Too Much Trouble, on October 1stinternationally. The biography is written by Stuart Berman (editor at Toronto’s Eye Weekly, regular contributor to Pitchfork, and author of This Book Is Broken: A Broken Social Scene Story). This oral history features exclusive interviews with a huge cast of punk, indie-rock, metal, movie and media luminaries, including Elijah Wood, Ralph Macchio, Lemmy Kilmister, Dizzy Reed, Jello Biafra, Marty Friedman, and more. Together, their quotes form a unique, incisive and often hilarious narrative chronicling the struggles and triumphs of the hardest-working band in the biz.
DANKO JONES recently released a brand new track entitled ‘Just A Beautiful Day’. The track is available for free download at www.rockandrollisblackandblue.com. The website also includes information on the new album pre-order. The track will officially go on sale via iTunes the week of September 10th. A video ‘Just A Beautiful Day’ is set to be shot in New York in early September. Directing will be the Diamond Bros. who were responsible for all three music videos done for the previous album and who also were behind the band’s recently released DVD documentary, Bring On The Mountain.
