I love everything about HBO’s show True Blood – the plot, the characters, and the music. I always look forward to hearing the song chosen for the ending credits each week. I especially enjoyed Episode 4’s hard-rocking tune, “I’m Alive and on Fire” by Danko Jones. Well now, you can download the track for free during a limited time at RollingStone.com.
“I’m Alive and on Fire” comes from the band’s debut album of the same name, which is also available on iTunes. The song isn’t Jones’s only trip into the world of vampires. The band filmed a vampire-inspired video in 2006 for the song “First Date” from the album Sleep Is the Enemy (check out the video at the end of this post).
Danko Jones and his band will be touring the US through August and September to support their re-released full-length album, Below the Belt. Confirmed US tour dates are as follows:
- August 13, Flint, MI at Dirt Fest 2011 (WWBN Radio Festival)
- September 10, Phoenix, AZ at Ufest (KUPD Radio Festival)
- September 12, San Diego, CA at The Casbah
- September 14, West Hollywood, CA at The Roxy
*additional dates TBA
