Danko Jones will release their eighth album Wild Cat on March 3, 2017.

The Canadian outfit will also take the follow-up to 2015’s Fire Music on the road in Europe next spring.

A statement for the album describes Danko Jones as taking “the decaying corpse of rock ‘n’ roll, jolting it back to life, and making you believe it can once again conquer the world.”

It adds: “And like any endangered species, this wild cat has only become more tenacious and ferocious the longer he endures.With Wild Cat, Danko Jones presents his prescription for a better world: make war, then love.”

Further release details will be given in due course.
