“Electric Sounds” is due for release on September 15, 2023 through Sonic Unyon in Canada and AFM Records / Believe in the rest of the world. The first single ”Guess Who’s Back” is dropping on April 14, 2023. DANKO JONES have never felt more vibrant or hungry than they are on “Electric Sounds”. The standby time during the pandemic gave them the freedom to really sit down and compose an 11-track album masterpiece – a collection of their musical history, roots and influences, and without a doubt this brand new album is one of the best in their career yet.

The Canadian trio has spent months on the road with Guns N Roses, Motörhead and Volbeat and opened up for The Rolling Stones and Ozzy Osbourne. In early 2023 – already as a preparation for the new music to come – DANKO JONES performed on a very successful tour in Great Britain with Black Stone Cherry and The Darkness.
„We are very happy to be back on AFM. It feels like a homecoming, so let the celebration begin by cranking ELECTRIC SOUNDS. Time to shake some cities with it“, said DANKO about returning to the German label.
The “Electric Sounds” world tour starts off with various summer open airs all across Europe and continues with extensive touring during fall.
“The band’s upcoming album will be their best work to date”, states Nils Wasko, Senior A&R director of AFM Records. “We’ve been able to listen to the new record obviously and it’s stunning. We were always in close relationship with DANKO and his team and are very stoked to move again along the same lines.
