Danko Jones have reunited with producer Eric Ratz for their seventh album, due next year.
Ratz oversaw their breakthrough 1999 EP My Love Is Bold, which earned them a Juno nomination – and they were the first band to work with them at his Vespa Studios.
Jones says: "Working with Eric again has been a long time coming. It's been a great reunion, something we all wanted to do again. It's been most fortuitous to record some of the best songs we've written with him at the helm."
Ratz adds: "I've always felt they were one of the best hard rock bands to come out of Canada. Danko has amazing stage presence that fuels their live shows – our goal is to capture that with this recording."
Jones appears on Vista Chino and Kyuss man John Garcia's solo album, playing on 5000 Miles, a song he also wrote. Release details for his outfit's follow-up to 2012's Rock And Roll Is Black And Blue will be revealed in due course.
