Toronto’s Danko Jones will release its new album, Rock and Roll is Black and Blue, on Sept. 18. The band’s sixth album will also feature its sixth drummer, the newly added Atom Willard, whom you may know from his work with Rocket from the Crypt, the Offspring and, most recently, Social Distortion.
Rock and Roll is Black and Blue is the followup to 2010’s Below the Belt and will feature 13 new tracks, including “Just a Beautiful Day,” the upcoming opening single. Fans have been getting regular updates of the band’s writing and recording process through the Danko Jones YouTube channel.
The band will be hitting the road in October and November for a series of shows in Europe. No Canadian dates have been announced yet.
