Count yourself in for some heavy head-banging, hand horning, all-over body-mind-soul stimulation when the first verse commences on Date Night at Joey's by Django Jones and the Mystery Men.
Swimming in licks, riffs, rumbles, and a whole lotta shred while drowning in hand fulls of percussion, Date Night at Joey's is the only spot you'll want to be tonight! Will Tomlinson detonates loudly and proudly as he activates his vocal flames that meet punchy instrumentals. This crew is complete with Ciara Hurding on the drums, Joe O'Grady on the guitar, newcomer guitarist Matt Jones, and Isaac Rodgers on the bass; this is the Django Jones and the Mystery Men experience.
Date Night at Joey's gives you permission to unleash your alter ego. Rock out to a track that celebrates the fundamentals of friendship; this one in particular is full of humour, insults, and love for band member Joey. Among the crashes and grooves, connections between fellow humans pierce through.
"Initially written by frontman Will and guitarist Joe, the song acts as a lighthearted and mocking telling of their friendship, layering stupidity and flamboyance with sincerity" - Django Jones and the Mystery Men.
The oh-so-dirty rudiments bring all the elements together, essentially meshing and quite literally encouraging sneaker moshing with all the positive chaos created. Producer Stephen Harrison stepped up to the plate and sizzled his part of the show!
"We recorded the song with Stephen Harrison in Sheffield. We did our first single, 'Bad For You' with him and felt that he really captured the chaotic, energetic sound we were going for." - Django Jones and the Mystery Men
With the passing of their first tour in April, you can rest assured there’ll be more intention to continue touring in the near future. This summer, they’ll be locking down in the studio to focus on writing and recording more music for fans.
In the meantime, while they lock away, let's unlock a milestone and create an iconic moment in the name of post-punk by streaming Date Night at Joey's until it reaches its ultimate peak.
No one says no to a Django Jones and the Mystery Men invitation! LETS GO!
