It is vivid testimony to the famed work ethic of Danko Jones that their idea of ‘taking a break’ is to temporarily halt their relentless touring in favour of an extra period of writing and pre-production for their next record. This time was well spent, as their fourth full-length album, Never Too Loud, is a work already being hailed as the best Danko disc yet. After five years of gigging their guts out on five continents and 30 countries, the Toronto hard rock trio called a time out at the end of 2006. Securing the highly coveted services of ace Grammy-winning rock producer Nick Raskulinecz, (Rush, Foo Fighters, Coheed & Cambria, Stone Sour, Velvet Revolver) spurred the band into a feverish and fruitful writing period, prior to setting up shop with Nick in Los Angeles. It didnt hurt that Danko Jones recorded the new disc at Studio 606 in Los Angeles. Some fiendishly good rock has been spawned in the room; Never Too Loud can now be added to that impressive resume. Danko Jones have never sounded better on disc than here. The fire and energy that has made them live favourites around the globe is captured intact here, while subtle production touches reveal themselves when you crank this up high. Danko Jones’ career now spans four full-length albums (2002’s Born A Lion, 2003’s We Sweat Blood, and 2005’s Sleep Is The Enemy, 2008’s Never Too Loud), numerous EPs, collections, and compilation cuts (1996-1999), and multiple Juno Award nominations (Canada’s version of the Grammy). Danko Jones have attained genuine rock hero status in Europe over the past five years. Their no holds barred performance style has made them now-permanent and much-loved fixtures on the huge European rock festival circuit (Lowlands, Rock Im Park, Rock Am Ring, Wacken Open Air, Rock Werchter, Hultsfred, Leeds and Reading just to name a few), and they regularly sell-out increasingly larger venues on their own European headline tours. They will never surrender, and for them it’s Never Too Loud!!
