We are excited to announce that Atom Willard will be joining Danko Jones as the drummer on their upcoming summer tour, replacing Dan Cornelius who is no longer with the band. With a history in bands like Rocket From The Crypt, The Offspring and Social Distortion and being a current member of Angels & Airwaves the experience and talent Atom is bringing to the band will be the beginning of a very exciting new chapter.
Atom’s first show with the band will be in Gothenburg on June 15:th and they have about a dozen European festivals lined up all through summer. More North American dates will be announced shortly.
“Both JC and I have been fans of Atom Willard for years. We own the records he’s on and hell, we even wrote a song about his old band [“RIP RFTC” about Rocket From The Crypt]. Yes, we’re ecstatic he’s coming out with us.”
“I have been a fan of this band, and these songs for a long ass time…so when they asked if I could do it, and I could, I was stoked! I love rock and roll!”
