It’s been over a year since DNCE first shared a slice of “Cake By the Ocean” with listeners, and now the group is ready to release their debut studio album. That self-titled project will arrive on November 18th.
Spearheaded by Joe Jonas, DNCE includes bassist and keyboardist Cole Whittle, guitarist JinJoo and drummer Jack Lawless. JinJoo and Lawless have both previously toured with The Jonas Brothers.
DNCE last released a four-track EP in September 2015, which featured their hit single “Cake By the Ocean.” It seemed like it could have been a brief musical project for all involved, but they followed up that release with the smash hit “Toothbruth” this summer. That video featured Joe canoodling with supermodel Ashley Graham. As a result, the group won MTV’s Best New Artist award at the 2016 VMAs.
