Jezabels Announce New Album & Tour (Interview coming in Februarys Vandala Flip Magazine)

JezabelsThe Jezabels are thrilled to announce a month long North American headlining tour in support of their new full-length studio album The Brink – produced by Dan Grech-Marguerat (The Vaccines, The Kooks, Scissor Sisters) and due out in Canada on Dine Alone Records on February 18. The North American trek will come on the heels of some extensive overseas touring that kicks off with a headlining slot at this year’s Laneway Festival, whose Sydney and Melbourne dates are already sold out.  The band will follow that with their biggest UK and European headlining run yet including dates at 02 Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London and Astra in Berlin, and wrapping in Cologne, Germany at GEBAUDE 9 on March 20.  The Jezabels will kick off their North American run on March 26 at LA’s famed El Rey Theatre making stops in most major cities including 5 dates in Canada.  See below for a list of confirmed dates.
The Sydney four-piece – Sam Lockwood (guitar), Nik Kaloper (drums), Heather Shannon (keys), Hayley Mary (vox), – is excited to be venturing back out on the road in support of The Brink. The new album is the follow-up to their incredibly successful debut album Prisoner which shot to No. 2 on the ARIA Album chart, racked up gold and platinum sales, earned them a staggering eight ARIA nominations and won them an ARIA Award for “Best Independent Release.” The two years following the 2011 debut album was spent on the road and had The Jezabels playing more than 200 shows internationally, selling out headlining shows across Canada, USA, UK and Europe. They also found themselves playing a number of noteworthy festivals including Osheaga, Lollapalooza, Bumbershoot, Governors Ball, and Fun Fun Fun Festival in North America, and overseas it was Pukkelpop, T in the Park, Hop Farm Music Festival, Frequency, Big Day Out, and Falls Festival (Australia).

The Brink As things began to wind down, the band relocated to London and set to work on The Brink. Recorded in London with the help of producer Dan Grech-Marguerat and mastered at legendary Abbey Road Studios by Christian Wright (Ed Sheeran, LCD Soundsystem, Keane), the band entered the studio with loads of ideas and thrilled to be working with a producer that could help guide the process. From the album opener and title track “The Brink” – capturing the band’s love for texture, dynamics and subtlety – to current single “The End” – a shimmering triumphant tune with hauntingly dark lyrics – to album closer “All You Need” – a majestic dreamlike finale – the album reflects just how far The Jezabels have come from their start in Sydney nearly seven years ago.

Not content to sit idly by, The Jezabels hit the road this past November to support Depeche Mode on their UK arena run and followed those dates up with a handful of shows with The Pixies. They kick off their overseas dates on January 25 with the first Laneway Festival date in Singapore before heading to Australia and New Zealand to play six additional Laneway shows where the band will be officially launching The Brink.   For additional information on The Jezabels, overseas dates, etc. please visit: available now:
