Canada's powerhouse rock trio and Razor & Tie recording artists DANKO JONES have been tapped to support NICKELBACK on their upcoming Canadian tour. The tour kicks off at the CN Centre in Prince George, British Columbia on January 17. The hard-working, charismatic Canadian band has been on tour criss-crossing the United States, Europe and Canada since the American release of their album "We Sweat Blood" in April of 2005.

In between global tour dates, the band managed to find time to record new songs; DANKO JONES' highly-anticipated new album, "Sleep Is The Enemy", is now slated for a May 2 release in the United States (February 20 in Europe via Bad Taste Records). The first single from the album will be "First Date". The band will shoot the accompanying video in their native Canada in February.

"Sleep Is the Enemy" was produced and engineered by Matt DeMatteo at Record High Productions in Toronto and was mixed by Vic Florencia at Phase One Studios in Toronto. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York (Ted's previous work includes GREEN DAY's "American Idiot" and R.E.M.'s "Around The Sun"). Artwork was created by WalseCustomDesign.com.

DANKO JONES is Danko Jones (vocals, guitars), John "JC" Calabrese (bass) and Damon Richardson (drums).
