There is something to be said for consistency. Danko Jones fans know pretty much what they're going to get with every new record, but when the formula is so much high-energy fun, there's no cause for complaint. Fire Music is the band's seventh studio album, and it lives up to the fiery title. The production chair is filled this time by Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Monster Truck, Metric), and he captures DJ's delicious riffaliciousness in fine fashion. We're especially partial to the wall of sound and bravado-filled "I Will Break Your Heart", the suitably ferocious "Piranha", and the socially irresponsible "Getting Into Drugs". One track here, "Gonna Be A Fight Tonight", was the official song for the WWE Royal Rumble event last month.
Renowned as a killer band live, Danko Jones will tour Europe, their happiest hunting ground, in March, then return for the summer fest circuit there. They will launch the Canadian leg of their international tour in Winnipeg on April 9 and hit several cities in Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario, including a date at Danforth Music Hall in Toronto on April 24.
