The Danks Debut LP Are You Afraid of The Danks Available Today
Canadian quartet The Danks’ debut full-length album Are You Afraid of The Danks is available in the U.S. today, via Hidden Pony Records.
Driven by small-town boredom and a severe distaste for contemporary pop, Are You Afraid of The Danks delivers a fistful of excitement with the follow-through of a wrecking ball in a Beverly Hills mansion.
The Danks are led by members Brohan Moore and Alec O’Hanley on guitars and vocals, and supported by Brian Murphy on bass and Adam Hindle on drums. The anti-workaday quartet have engaged in national tours with Hey Rosetta! and Two Hours Traffic, caused widespread wowing of festival patrons at both Pop Montreal and North by Northeast, and have graced Tokyo Police Club and Ted Leo with their blistering onstage presence. With cowboy capitalists sitting high on the Canadian bacon and the Buzzcocks approaching senior citizenry, The Danks propose an alternative economy, one that deals strictly in the currency of cool.
The group is currently in the studio recording their sophomore album with producer Jeff McMurrich (Fucked UP, Constantines, Owen Pallett) and will be performing at the Hidden Pony Records showcase for the North By Northeast Music Festival on June 14th at the Drake Hotel in Toronto.
