Dank, formerly Dank Sinatra, has announced the release of a new self-titled album that will be available on Tuesday, February 3 via CDBaby, iTunes, Spotify and other online download and streaming outlets. In support of the new album, Dank will embark on a winter tour of the Southeast US kicking off January 23 in Georgia.
Dank is the next installment in what is a long and storied history of Rock and Roll music. Combining rhythm and blues tradition with a modern sense of urgency and experimentation, Dank is pulling Rock music into the 21st century as it was meant to be heard and experienced.
With energetic and unpredictable live performances, as well as a knack for the studio and all of its wizardry, this Atlanta five-piece is showing fans what it takes to rock in the torrid seas of a post-Napster musical climate. It’s hard to pin down exactly what the Dank will become, or how far the band has come to get to where it is today, but at the core of this outfit is a red hot soul and a burning sense of modern day Rock and Roll magic.
Dank (the album), is concrete evidence of this Atlanta five-piece’s ability to put together an album that rewards both the close listening enthusiast and the quick trip YouTube-ist.
With feet firmly on the ground in clever hooks and melodies, along with an interstellar spin wrought by Producer Scott Nicholas, Dank is an album written over the last year by a band in between cities. The resulting work exhibits growth and movement, roots being lifted from their foundations, and a feverous excitement towards a future unknown.
Songs like the album opener “Crash the Door” mark a conscious stylistic effort by the band to claim new ground in the stale world of modern rock, and to stake their claim as ambassadors to a modern era of rock and roll music. Space age synth leads and effects, southern rock craftsmanship, scorching dual guitar leads, and experimental transitions and song structure are the name of the game here.
As their most focused effort yet, Dank provides the listener with a complete experience and an invitation to follow along for the journey to come.
