Southern California’s Joker’s Hand have revealed the single “Danny Phantom” (ft. Jakob Nowell). The track is the band’s first single on their new label Wiretap Records. “Danny Phantom” follows the release earlier this year of their self-released, 8-song debut album, All-American Rage. The band’s biggest influences are Pop, Punk and Hip-Hop which build on their Rock-rooted sound.

Frontman Kevin Kawano says:

Working with Jakob was such a blast. He came down to the studio so we could show him what we were working on. At this point we had played multiple shows together, so we knew that Jakob was going to KILL IT vocally, but we had never recorded anything with him before so, at the same time, we didn’t really know what to expect. He stepped in front of the mic and just went for it. He truly made that verse his own, adding a distinct new flavor to the song that really brought everything together. We couldn’t be happier with how the it came out! And on top of that, Jakob is such a fun hang, one of the nicest guys we’ve met in the industry for sure!

Kawano met bandmate Matthew Lau and together they formed the band in 2017. After writing dozens of demos and carving a name for themselves on the Los Angeles club circuit, the band met with producers Steve Ornest and Wyn Davis at Total Access Recording Studios (Sublime, No Doubt, Guns N’ Roses). They began working on what would become their debut self-titled EP, which was released in March 2020.

Upcoming shows:

August 13th at Brouwerij West (San Pedro, CA)

October 2nd at The Continental Room (Fullerton, CA)
