Hot on the heels of sharing the news of their upcoming album Electric Sounds last week, DANKO JONES have now announced a clutch of UK headline dates for December 2023, as part of a wider European trek.

No band has ever sounded more ready to hit the road than the pumped-up threesome showcased on the hell-for-leather ragers featured on their forthcoming album. Armed with this collection of brand new bangers, DANKO JONES launch themselves into 2023 on a renewed mission to rock the living shit-lights out of anyone and everyone that wants to join the party.

Frontman Danko declares, “We love touring in the UK and thankfully we are coming back! What’s not to love when you play in front of crowds that know their rock and know how to rock out?! Every day is just one more day we have to patiently get through until the tour starts. I think you can tell I’m already very ready to do this. Give me a guitar and get me to the stage NOW! 

Special guests for the dates will be US punk squad Radkey.

The headline dates line-up as follows:

Tue 12th Dec – BRISTOL Thekla

Wed 13th Dec – GLASGOW King Tuts

Thu 14th Dec – NOTTINGHAM Rescue Rooms

Fri 15th Dec – MANCHESTER Rebellion

Sat 16th Dec – LONDON Garage

Set your alarm! Pre-sales for tickets begin at 10am BST, Wednesday 19th April. Tickets go on general sale starting at 10am BST on Friday 21st April. For all ticketing links and more information, visit:

In addition, DANKO JONES are confirmed as main support on Sunday 3rd December at the rifftastic extravaganza that is Planet Rockstock, taking place in Trecco Bay, South Wales and marking its10th anniversary this year. Tickets for that event are on sale now.

Toronto’s archbishops of amplification prove that even a global pandemic couldn’t stop DANKO JONES. As first album single “Guess Who’s Back” clearly displays, it’s just made them even more unstoppable. “Guess Who’s Back is not only the lead-off track to our new album, Electric Sounds, it’s also the imperative sentence everyone is begging to answer – Danko Jones!” quips charismatic frontman Danko.

Electric Sounds promises to have the instant sound and feel of a classic. With no need to reinvent the wheel, the group have further honed and refined their craft – always at full volume – although Electric Sounds is a deceptively diverse affair. 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).

Electric Sounds will be released via AFM Records on September 15th, 2023. Get the new DANKO JONES song on all digital services here, and watch a lyric video for Guess Who’s Back here.
