Get ready for a Danish rock n roll explosion!!
Their hit song “Geordie” from last year’s well-received debut album Sin & Tonic (check out The Meister‘s review here) has now reached 500.000 plays on Spotify (over 1 million on all digital streaming platforms) and 200.000 views on Youtube and the band has just been confirmed for a huge European tour.
But if you thought this was it for Junkyard Drive you are wrong! 2018 will not be any kind of stagnant or boring for this Danish hard rock band!
Junkyard Drive have just finished their new album Black Coffee, which was recorded in Medley Studios in Copenhagen, with Soren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Mike Tramp, Jesper Binzer) as producer.
The album is now ready to be released worldwide through Mighty Music on September 1st, 2018.
Black Coffee contains 11 hard rocking tracks. Just the way it should be, with a band that has developed a lot since their formation. And you can actually hear that it in the sound!
In addition to the new record, Junkyard Drive played at this year’s Nordic Noise Festival, When Copenhell Freezes Over, and not least, at this year’s Sweden Rock Festival side by side with bands like Judas Priest, Ozzy, and Iron Maiden.
In September and October 2018 Junkyard Drive will head out on a Danish tour and in November 2018 a European tour has been booked supporting the legendary Diamond Head.
Junkyard Drive have also released a single from the album, entitled “Sweet Little Dreamer” which can be viewed below.
If you like your rock ‘n’ roll hard, heavy, sleazy and dirty, then this is the album, and band, for you.
