Take It All InAustin's own The Steps will release Take It All In, produced by Chris 'Frenchie' Smith (JET, Dandy Warhols, Explosions in the Sky). The EP distills the band's '60s influenced garage rock to its most potent and frenetic form.
Formed in 2005 while still in high school, The Steps first achieved international success with releases and tours in the U.K. and Japan. Launched by a strong Texas following, the band has shared the stage with Bob Dylan, The Raconteurs, and the Black Keys.
Born under the influence of classic rock in the Live Music Capital of the World, The Steps chisel through modern rock with '60s sensibilities. The band made their recording debut with a 7 vinyl single brought by Young and Lost Club Records (U.K.), followed by a tour of London. Their eponymous full length, produced by Chris 'Frenchie' Smith (Jet, Dandy Warhols) set up a short tour of Japan, where the band made several television and radio appearances.$9.99Vinyl LP - Sealed Buy Now
Rock And Roll Is Black And BlueOver the course of six full-length albums, Danko Jones has forged a singular sound that draws equally from the blues, '60s garage, '70s hard rock, '80s hardcore, punky power-pop, Scandinavian metal, and classic stand-up comedy records without ever being fully defined by any of those sources.
But while built from the same rudiments, each Danko Jones record possesses a distinct sonic identity. Born A Lion (2002) brought the boogie and sledgehammer soul; We Sweat Blood (2003) was, by contrast, more anxious and aggro. Sleep Is the Enemy (2006) wielded the sharpest hooks. Never Too Loud (2008) was as slick as Below the Belt (2010) was stripped-down.
But, compared to all that's come before, Rock And Roll Is Black And Blue is, hands down, the most emotional and, as a result, the most epic Danko Jones album to date. What you hear on Rock And Roll Is Black And Blue is the Danko Jones ideal blown up to skyscraping proportions, resulting in 13 tracks that are bolder, brasher, and brawnier than anything they've attempted before.
The album is produced in full by their longtime partner in crime Matt DeMatteo and was mixed by Mike Fraser, known for his work with AC/DC and Aerosmith among others. It is also the first album recorded with "new" drummer Atom Willard, the sixth person in Danko Jones history to hold the "drummer" title, but the first to stand on equal creative footing with Danko and his longtime foil, bassist John "JC" Calabrese.
