Canadian trio Danko Jones has premiered their new single “Good Time”, taken from their upcoming eleventh studio album, “Electric Sounds”, set to be released on September 15 via AFM Records. You can watch below the hilarious karaoke-themed music video for “Good Time“, featuring a guest appearance by Inge Johansson (currently in Gatuplan, previously of Against Me! and International Noise Conspiracy).

The clip was directed by Philip Hovensjö at Horseboy (Yung Lean, Martin Garrix, Victor Leksell, etcetera).

“Electric Sounds” was produced by Eric Ratz, and features guest spots from Tyler Stewart (Barenaked Ladies), Damian Abraham (Fucked Up), and guitarist Daniel Dekay (from Canadian thrash legends Exciter). The album pre-sale has just started at this location.

Regarding the new single, Danko Jones says: “Good Time is the song you need to hear when you’re not ready to throw in the towel. It also rocks very very very hard and has a lot of swear words.”

Formed in Toronto in 1996, Danko Jones have seen and done just about everything over the last quarter of a century. Powered by a DIY punk rock spirit, and inspired by the good, great and grotesque of electrified rock ‘n’ roll, they have steadily built a colossal international fan base and become one of the most acclaimed live bands around, embraced by everyone from mainstream radio-rock fans to diehard metalheads. Along the way, they have released ten widely praised studio albums, generating a peerless repertoire of fists-in-the-air crowd-pleasers into the bargain.

From the spiky blues of 2002’s “Born A Lion” and the crazed power-pop of its follow-up “We Sweat Blood” (2003), to the priapic perfection of 2010’s “Below The Belt”, the band’s knack for hitting rock’s sweet spot has never wavered. Over the last decade, Danko Jones have visibly moved up a few gears. Since frontman Danko and bassist JC joined forces with drummer Rich Knox, the band’s creative fire has blazed more brightly than ever. A succession of all-killer, no-filler albums – “Fire Music”, “Wild Cat”, “A Rock Supreme”, “Power Trio” – has led to even more gung-ho touring and unapologetic service to the rock cause. With “Electric Sounds”, Toronto’s archbishops of amplification prove that even a global pandemic couldn’t stop Danko Jones.
