Gonna Be a Fight Tonight - Single
Lovers of high-energy no-frills guitar-driven rock will be pleased to learn that Danko Jones will release their seventh studio album, Fire Music, on Feb. 10. The early video track "Gonna Be A Fight Tonight" happily shows them sticking to formula, delivering another riff-alicious treat, one with a Thin Lizzy-feel. It is capably produced by hard-rock maestro Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Monster Truck, Metric).The trio turn 20 next year, but they remain sorely underappreciated here. Thankfully, they have deservedly won a large and loyal European following, one that boosted their 2006 track "First Date" to an impressive 2.8 mill YouTube views.

Danko Jones remain a band best experienced live. After European dates, they will kick off 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.
