Danko Jones

Danko Jones have been on a roll this year. The latest album, "Sleep Is The Enemy", reached their best chart positions ever in 7 European countries + Canada (in Sweden it peaked at number 8 in the album charts!). After a sold out arena tour with Nickelback across Canada early this year they headlined Europe for 7 weeks and sold out huge venues across the continent!!

US album release + tour

Last week they played a couple of shows on the east coast in Canada and they are currently gearing up for 9 shows in the US, starting on Friday next week, to support the May 23:rd release of "Sleep Is The Enemy" through Razor & Tie. Tour dates can be found below.

European Festival Summer

Shortly after returning from their US jaunt, Danko are set to embark on their most extensive festival summer in Europe so far, with appearances on more than a dozen of the biggest festivals in Europe! Confirmed dates can be found below, with more festivals to be made official over the coming weeks. Future updates can be found here.

New single / video

After the success of "Baby Hates Me" on radio & TV across Europe, the second single, "First Date", from "Sleep Is The Enemy" is in the process of being serviced to media on mainland Europe. Another incredible track that is currently getting a lot of attention at US radio and climbing the different radio charts in North America quickly!

In combination with servicing the single we are also presenting a brand new video, directed by Micah Meisner for Revolver Film Company in Toronto, whose previous work includes Buck 65, The Dears, Broken Social Scene and Metric. Check out the amazing video for "First Date" on Danko's Myspace page below!
