I Could “Do This Every Night” – Danko Jones Road Trip

In post #2 of this two part series here are some snaps and the highlights of the Talvi Festivaali that took place in Kuopio and Joensuu in February 2017.

Almost 2 years ago to the day Danko Jones were promoting their latest album, Fire Music, on a boat cruising between Finland and Estonia. This time around another new album, Wild Cat and a new mini-festival with even more suitable stable mates – Backyard Babies and Hardcore Superstar.

That Song

I might be a bit late to the game since this video was released last week already. However I thought that there’s no harm in putting in the limelight again.

“That Song” is the lead single from the up-coming album MAXIMALISM by one of my favorite bands, Amaranthe.

The Gathering

After skipping Delain’s first visit to Finland I finally got to see one of my “Bucket list” bands and I’ve got to say – they were magnificent.

For various reasons I missed Delain’s debut at Tuska earlier this year but I really wanted to see them live and this was second only to Nightwish in terms of living up to expectations.
