UK Press on 'Fire Music'
"This is a rock n roll surgical strike, the venom and violence delivered straight between the eyes. This is not happy music, this is pain, betrayal, resentment, regret, and incandescent fury. Truly incendiary stuff." - Classic Rock

"'Fire Music' unfolds like a frenzied parking lot punch-up, each track landing one bare-knuckled haymaker after another." - Metal Hammer

"Canada's rowdiest party band are back... serving up 11 more odes to smokin' and fightin', shot through with lascivious swagger." - Rock Sound

"Danko's spitting blood once more with tales of wild women, bar brawls, and chemical debauchery. It's a trashy affair born of sweaty jams and kegs of beer in the basement!" - Kerrang!
