“Smackdown” is the first new music from James in over 2 years and will be the lead single off of his forthcoming as-yet-untitled 3rd  full length album release slated for this summer.   “Smackdown” showcases James’ signature hard rock sound in a grand way with crunching guitar riffs and a truly epic drum beat.  From the opening bass riff to the closing scream & all the debauchery in between, James Durbin is back & better than ever before

James has also been invited to perform on American Idol’s finale show Thursday, April 7th.  Other performers slated to return for the finale show include Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Daughtry, David Cook and many other former IDOLS.

“I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Idol series Finale. It’s really beginning to hit me that this whole thing is gonna be over. I am excited but sad too. I’m honored & grateful to share the end of this show with all my amazingly talented Idol family & lay it to rest together” said James.
