DANNY & THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD TO PLAY JACK WHITE’S THIRD MAN RECORDS + NEW LIVE ALBUM DETAILS ANNOUNCED

DATCOTW_by_Peter_Millson

Soulful folk-rockers Danny & The Champions Of The World have been invited to Nashville, Tennessee to play an official showcase at the 2014 Americana Music Festival, with their key appearance set to be at the wonderfully weird music spot that is Jack White’s Third Man Records (Fri 19th Sep, 11pm).

The news coincides with the announcement that the band will be releasing their long-awaited, first ever live album, “Live Champs!” through Loose Records on 29th September, with an extensive UK tour to follow throughout October (see below).

“In a way it’s the ultimate Champs album” enthuses Danny & The Champions Of The World front man Danny George Wilson on new record “Live Champs!”, and he’s not wrong. The double album runs from 2008′s These Days taken from their self titled debut, to a selection of favourites from last year’s critically acclaimed album, Stay True (“their finest set yet” ★★★★ MOJO”), via the likes of Henry The Van from 2010′s Streets Of Our Time and Colonel & The King from 2011’s Hearts & Arrows. It’s almost like a greatest hits of Danny & The Champions The World.

However, this particular hits package captures what the studio recordings can’t quite convey – the raw passion and energy of a Danny & The Champs live show. As Danny explains “ever since I was a kid I’ve absolutely loved live recordings, ever since we played those bootleg cassettes in our dad’s car again and again… its something that a studio album cannot capture. This is what we sound like right now and I’m thrilled we were able to capture that”.

Recorded live at a sold out hometown show at Jazz Cafe, Camden on the 6th March this year, featuring co-conspirators Trevor Moss & Hannah-Lou, you can either take this as a welcome reminder of a shit-hot show, or a harsh lesson on how you should never pass up an opportunity to catch this band live.

“Live Champs!” – Danny & The Champions Of The World, live at Camden Jazz Café, is out 29th September via Loose Records.
