Danko Jones is happy to announce the release of the group's first official live album exclusively through Spotify. Listen to "Live At Gröna Lund" at Spotify here. The following press release was also issued:
"With close to 20 years of touring experience and a reputation as one of the best live bands in the world it would have been wrong not to at least try and capture the energy of the Danko Jones live show on tape with the recording taken from their only show in Europe this year – at the legendary Gröna Lund amusement park in Stockholm, Sweden on May 16th. Their relation to Sweden has always been a special one and has resulted in countless shows, two gold singles and top ten album chart positions, so for this show to be the pick for a live album seems only natural.
"The album contains 20 tracks of classic songs from their live repertoire and ends with 'Bring On The Mountain' – a song everyone who has ever attended a Danko JOnes concert will be familiar with – that is now being made available as a recording for the very first time.
"The band is currently finishing up a new studio album and will do a string of festival dates in Canada this fall along with an exclusive U.S. show at Motörhead’s Motörboat along with Megadeth, Anthrax and of course the hosts themselves!"
The first annual Motörhead Motörboat has announced additions to the band lineup for the September 22nd - 26th, 2014 cruise on the Carnival Ecstasy.

Motörhead’s Motörboat will sail from Miami, visiting the ports of Key West, Florida and Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. While onboard, guests will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to interact with band members and will see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship.
Tickets for Motörhead’s Motörboat are on sale now at this location. The Carnival Ecstasy, which recently underwent a multi-million dollar refurbishment, features a tropical-themed resort-style main pool area, multiple dining options (including a 24-hour pizzeria), 12,000-square-foot Spa Carnival health club, a jogging track, as well as 12 lounges, bars, and nightspots.

Former Kyuss singer John Garcia has announced that he'll be touring and playing Kyuss songs. Since Kyuss, Garcia's musical projects include Sloburn, Unida and John's most recent band Hermano, plus side projects with The Crystal Method, Danko Jones and countless others who embraced the singer from the Southern California desert.
Why? Kyuss, the inventors of Desert Rock, have been in the last ten years much more popular than when they were still around in the early nineties. So, due to massive public demand over the years to play songs from his old cult band Kyuss, John finally made the decision to give the fans what they want. He will do this unique project with a few hand selected musicians.
The last couple of years John Garcia thought often about reviving his Kyuss-legacy on stage. The more he thought about it, the more he really wanted to do this. John commented: "I don't want to do this just for myself, but especially for the fans. Both for the ones that have seen Kyuss live back in the days, and especially for the ones who haven't had that chance. This could be as close as they could get to the real thing. Please bear in mind that this could be a one-off unique opportunity!"
So that being said, the Garcia Plays Kyuss-project (alias GPK) was born. Garcia, accompanied by these fine selection of musicians, Bruno Fevery (guitar), Jacques de Haard (bass) and Rob Snijders (drums), will head out to play all Kyuss set.
John Garcia (born in San Manuel, Arizona, September 4, 1970) is a vocalist who has been a member of Kyuss, Slo Burn, Unida and Hermano. His vocals have become synonymous with modern stoner rock and the desert rock sound. While still in high school, Garcia help start Kyuss (originally known as Sons of Kyuss) in 1989 with guitarist Josh Homme. The band produced five albums in total, all of which featured Garcia on vocals.
In October 1995, just three months after releasing what could be argued as their breakthrough album "...And The Circus Leaves Town" (thanks to MTV airplay), Kyuss broke up. Their last recording was a 10" vinyl on the now defunct label Man's Ruin Records, which was later re-released on a split CD with Homme's soon to be famous project Queens of the Stone Age. The band has been on an indefinite hiatus ever since and has reached a legendary status, influencing thousands of new young (rock)bands. Read more about Kyuss and check out some videos in our recent "Sunday Old School" feature.

Austin's Broken Teeth has issued the following update regarding the progress of their new album:
"In the studio and sweating blood, Broken Teeth is hammering out a new album that will crush like an anvil when it lands at the end of the year. Titled 'Viva la Rock Fantastico!' and featuring guest vocals by Canadian rock-n-roll killer, Danko Jones, the album is a fireball of scorching new tracks, including 'Exploder,' 'Spitting Nails,' 'Blackheart' and the spiked-with-tequila title track. As always, Broken Teeth will screech their rock-n-roll sermon to the metal church faithful when 'Fantastico' ignites a case of road-hard, white line fever across the U.S.A. and beyond. If you bow at the altar of Rose Tattoo, AC/DC and Rhino Bucket, you're gonna scream for Broken Teeth! "
