Jason Bullinger For Alternative Revolt

On an off-date during their recent tour of European summer festivals, the Canadian hard rock trio Danko Jones filmed a music video for their anthemic call-to-arms “Fists Up High” with director Patric Ulleaus (In Flames, Arch Enemy). Look for the clip to premiere next month, when the band will hit the road for an extensive tour of Europe and the United Kingdom with Volbeat and Baroness.

“Fists Up High” is the latest single from Danko Jones’ acclaimed new album “A Rock Supreme,” hailed by Classic Rock (UK) for its “crisp, lean, no-bullshit production and riffs that rain down like hammer blows.” The record, which was produced by Garth “Gggarth” Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Rise Against, Biffy Clyro).

Danko Jones has made a name for themselves over the years as a must-see live band during memorable tours with the likes of Guns N’ Roses, Motörhead and Clutch. The group’s best-known material includes “Had Enough,” which earned the group their first gold and platinum singles in Sweden and has racked up more than 14 million Spotify streams; “Gonna Be A Fight Tonight,” which WWE used as the official theme song of the 2015 Royal Rumble; and “Lovercall,” their first of seven singles to crack the U.S. Active Rock Top 40.

Danko Jones’ namesake front man Danko Jones also contributed guest vocals on Volbeat’s 2017 No. 1 active rock hit “Black Rose,” a song he has joined the group to perform live several times, most recently at their Aug. 20 concert in Jones’ hometown of Toronto.

Prior to their European tour with Volbeat, Danko Jones will head Down Under for their first Australian tour in more than a decade.
