As previously reported, BW&BK recently received the following press release:
Danko Jones are ready to invade the US with the release of Never Too Loud, their brand new studio album, out September 8 via Bad Taste Records/Caroline.
Hailing from Toronto, the group teamed with Grammy award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, FOO FIGHTERS, COHEED & CAMBRIA, STONE SOUR, VELVET REVOLVER) and recorded Never Too Loud at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 in Los Angeles. Ted Jensen (Green Day, REM) came onboard for mastering duties. “We really wanted to step it up sonically on this album, and Nick was the perfect guy for that,” explains Danko Jones, the band’s lead singer and guitarist.
“There’s something to be said for the bands that stick to the story, MOTÖRHEAD, AC/DC, SLAYER, THE RAMONES, they’re the ones who have survived,” he adds. “We know who we are, but we upped the ante and experimented with varied styles of hard rock on this album.”
The group tapped John Garcia of KYUSS fame and punk legend Pete Stahl (WOOL SCREAM, GOATSNAKE) for the six-minute SABBATH-influenced epic ‘Forest For The Trees’. From first single and album opener ‘Code Of The Road’, to the infectious melodies of ‘City Streets’, to the Bon Scott-channeling title track, Never Too Loud showcases the group’s adrenalized, raucous garage rock that encompasses everything that’s fun about hard rock past and present.
The complete tracklisting for Never Too Loud is as follows: ‘Code of the Road’, ‘City Streets’, ‘Still In High School’, ‘Take Me Home’, ‘Let’s Get Undressed’, ‘King Of Magazines’, ‘Forest For The Trees’, ‘Your Tears My
‘, ‘Something Better’, ‘Ravenous’, ‘Never Too Loud’, ‘My Problems (Are Your Problems Now)’*, ‘Sugar High’*, ‘R.I.P. RFTC’*.
