After topping international radio charts with “Guess Who’s Back”, their current infectious single “Good Time” crash landed into the radio charts just as quickly. Now, the band has shared a hilarious music video for new single “Get High?”, featuring Damian Abraham of Fucked Up!
“With the legalisation of marijuana, it was inevitable a song like “Get High?” would be birthed,” comments charismatic frontman Danko about the band’s new single. “I just didn’t know it would be our band that penned the anthem for potheads everywhere. Damian Abraham of Fucked Up even joins us to answer my question – Do You Wanna Get High? His answer is “yes”.”
Toronto’s archbishops of amplification prove that even a global pandemic couldn’t stop DANKO JONES. From the chest-out chutzpah of the opening “Guess Who’s Back” and the muscular new wave strut of “Good Time”, to the title track’s promise to “smash a thousand guitars tonight!” or the new pothead’s anthem “Get High?”, Electric Sounds is a deceptively diverse affair. Meanwhile, no band has ever sounded more ready to hit the road than the pumped-up threesome showcased on its hell-for-leather, new rager. Electric Sounds was produced by Eric Ratz, and guest spots from Tyler Stewart (Barenaked Ladies) on “She’s My Baby”, Damian Abraham of Fucked Up on “Get High?” and guitarist Daniel Dekay (from Canadian thrash legends Exciter) on “Electric Sounds” complete the picture with a snotty flourish.
