DANKO JONES ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE DATE OF OCTOBER 9 FOR ROCK AND ROLL IS BLACK AND BLUE ANNOUNCES TRACKLISTING AND PREMIERES NEW SINGLE “Just A Beautiful Day”
(August 28, 2012, Toronto, ON) – DANKO JONES is gearing up for the worldwide release of their latest album Rock and Roll is Black and Blue. The album will now be released in Canada on October 9, 2012.
For those who cannot wait to get a taste of the upcoming album, the first single, “Just A Beautiful Day” is being offered as a free download to fans today at: www.rockandrollisblackandblue.com. Pre-order links for ROCK AND ROLL IS BLACK AND BLUE will be found on the same site.
“Just A Beautiful Day” features a cloud-parting chorus and is sure to be an instant favourite among fans. A video for the song is set to shoot in New York, early September. Directing will once again be the Diamond Bros, the dynamic duo responsible for all three music videos done on Danko Jones’ previous album, and the documentary Bring On The Mountain – a two disc DVD featuring a 90-minute documentary, a short film, exclusive live clips from around the world and all the music videos the band has ever done.
Rock and Roll is Black and Blue is, hands down, the most emotional and, as a result, the most epic Danko Jones album to date, with 13 tracks that are bolder, brasher, and brawnier than anything they’ve attempted before. The album is produced by longtime partner in crime Matt DeMatteo, and mixed by Mike Fraser, known for his work with AC/DC, Aerosmith, Franz Ferdinand and Elvis Costello, to name a few.
Danko Jones will be spending the better part of October and November touring Europe. Tour dates in Canada, US and Australia will be announced soon with more European dates and a busy festival summer in 2013 also on the horizon. For more info, visit: http://www.dankojones.com/home/tour
