As they prepare to finish a three-week U.S. headline tour tonight in Seattle, the Canadian hard rock trio DANKO JONES has unveiled the Amir Chamdin-directed music video for their latest single, “Dance Dance Dance”. Watch it below:
Chamdin – an award-winning Swedish filmmaker who has previously helmed clips for the likes of Ghost, The Cardigans and The Hellacopters – shot the “Dance Dance Dance” video last month in Stockholm and created something truly unique with it by combining two vastly different artforms – Danko’s signature style of Rock with an incredible single-take Dancehall video. As longtime fans of his work, the members of DANKO JONES were excited to collaborate with Chamdin and gave him free reign to bring his vision of their song to life.
Says front man Danko Jones, “We are excited to finally have Amir Chamdin directing the video for our new single, ‘Dance Dance Dance.’ We’ve been a huge fan of Amir’s work for years now, and waiting to work with him was all worth it.”
“Dance Dance Dance” – which premiered on Los Angeles’ KLOS-FM last month, when Jones guested on the popular “Jonesy’s Jukebox” program hosted by Steve Jones (Sex Pistols) – is the third track unveiled in advance of the release of the group’s new album, “A Rock Supreme,” produced by GGGarth Richardson (Rage Against The Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Biffy Clyro). “A Rock Supreme” is due out April 26 via M-Theory Audio (U.S.), Rise Above (UK), Indica (Canada, AU, NZ) and AFM (rest of the world).
While the group’s successful West Coast tour with Nashville Pussy and Prima Donna ends tonight, DANKO JONES will return to America later this year, when they will embark on the inaugural Megacruise with Megadeth, Anthrax, Testament and other legendary heavyweights. The band also has a number of high-profile European performances scheduled in the coming months, including an appearance at the annual Sweden Rock festival, the Highfield Festival in Germany and a Helsinki date supporting The Offspring. Australian and Canadian dates will be announced shortly. A complete list of their upcoming shows can be seen at www.dankojones.com/tour.
DANKO JONES – whose namesake front man contributed guest vocals to Volbeat’s 2017 #1 Active Rock hit “Black Rose,” a song he performed live with the group at their recent stadium show in Denmark (captured on the newly-released DVD/Blu-ray “Let’s Boogie! Live From Telia Parken”) – 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.
