Danko Jones – Fists Up High

With their European/UK arena tour with Volbeat just days away, acclaimed Canadian hard rockers DANKO JONES have unveiled a music video for their anthemic new single, “Fists Up High. The video was shot in Gothenburg, Sweden at the end of July with noted director Patric Ullaeus (In Flames, Arch Enemy) on an off-date during the band’s recent European festival tour. The clip marks the first time in seven years that the group – whose namesake vocalist/guitarist was recently praised by Classic Rock (UK) as “the standard by which other intense modern front men are measured” – has filmed a true performance video.

“’Fists Up High’ is my favorite song on our new album ‘A Rock Supreme,’” Danko says. “We’re very excited for everyone to see the new video and can’t wait to play it when we hit the road with Volbeat.”

A two-track digital single for “Fists Up High” is now available on Spotify, Apple Music and other platforms. The B-side is a cover of “You Love It,” a song by Canadian electropunk singer Peaches. “We love Peaches, and watched her start up in Toronto and take over the world,” says Danko. “’You Love It’ has the attitude and energy that makes you want to bang your head and dance the night away.”

In other DANKO JONES news, the band – who just completed a successful Australian tour – recently announced two concerts in its home province of Ontario, including a hometown show at Toronto’s Lee’s Palace on Dec. 6. See below for the group’s complete list of upcoming performances.

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.

The group’s latest album, “A Rock Supreme,” which was produced by Garth “Gggarth” Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against The Machine, Rise Against, Biffy Clyro), can be ordered and/or streamed at this location: http://hyperurl.co/danko
