FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jets Overhead are pleased to announce the release of their new album, Boredom and Joy. The album, the Victoria bandÃ¢€™s third, will be available in stores and at all digital retailers on June 12th. The first single, the albumÃ¢€™s title track, will be available on iTunes on April 10th. The band will also be performing at Rock The Shores in Victoria, BC on July 13th with The Tragically Hip, Sam Roberts Band, and Current Swell.
Produced by Emery Dobyns (Patti Smith, Noah & The Whale, Travis, Antony & The Johnsons), Boredom and Joy was recorded in New York at Stratosphere Sound and Flux. The single features the pure, harmony-driven vocals of husband and wife duo Adam Kittredge and Antonia Freybe-Smith, along with a bright, playful backing from Piers Henwood (guitar/keyboard), Jocelyn Greenwood (bass), and Luke Renshaw (drums). This album marks the first time Jets Overhead have recorded outside of their home country of Canada.
Boredom and Joy follows up on the success of No Nations; an album that brought the band to new heights with major festival performances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, and the World Expo in Shanghai. Their dreamy rock soundscapes have also been featured on major network television programs, including Bones, House, and Pretty Little Liars. Boredom and Joy will be serviced to radio stations across Canada on April 13th. For more information, please visit www.jetsoverhead.com, or follow the band on Twitter at @jetsoverhead.
