Constant touring earned Danko Jones success in Canada, where a healthy sense of humor is a given. The band also did well in Europe, though it took until 2004 to land a U.S. record deal. But as is often the case with rock bands offering comic commentary on the genre, there's little choice but to get better and more serious after years of touring. Hence Jones has dispensed with frilly fashions, and the band has settled into a metal-festival schedule. But all that time spent touring has limited Jones' ability to concentrate on songwriting, as evidenced by the latest CD, We Sweat Blood, which is only half-hot. But the live show is still an undisputed bawdy blast.
