Hidden Pony at NXNE!

We’re pumped to play a part in the awesome festival that is North by Northeast. NXNE is known for hosting emerging talent, “buzz bands,” and international acts in the heart of Toronto. Our own Jeremy Fisher and Said the Whale have been featured artists, and you bet the HP Club is back for more this year.

The Danks announce “Gank”

THE DANKS
RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM
GANK ON JUNE 11, 2013

OFFER NEW TRACK “EXPERIMENTAL FICTION

THE DANKS are drifters with a purpose. Their debut album Are You Afraid Of The Danks rallied up the critical masses across North America, and saw the former PEI foursome score adds at US radio and twice charting in the CMJ Top 200. Exclaim called the record: “a power pop-laden effort immersed in reverberating, clunky guitars and dizzying keyboards, with raspy yet balmy vocals.”

On June 11, 2013 they will unleash their second album GANK (Hidden Pony Records). The songs that don’t get your head banging will make you want to rip off your unitard. Today they offer brand new album track Experimental Fiction, channeling some of the best fuzzed out, shoegazing indie rock with a detectable spirit of The Jesus and Mary Chain and the generational slackery of The Strokes at: thedanks.com
