New EP "Jungle" out on May 21st!
Jungle is a collection of 5 songs each unique in their approach to the subject of depression, anxiety and substance addiction, but cohesive in their theme. Songs like “Dull My Brain”, and “Watery Grave” bring charisma and energy to the fore as they tackle substance addiction. Whereas tracks like “Jungle” and “I Will Move On’’ are dark and gritty but hopeful in their lyrics and melody as it delves into the topic of anxiety and depression.
Jungle, when listened to front to back, is a linear story. The tracks on the EP plant the listener firmly in the shoes of a person struggling for conquest of their own mind; their life has become a duality of love and hate.
Step by step (song by song) the listener learns the story of a person battling self and substance, constantly shifting in their resolve to overcome their depressive and anxious mind.
In this follow up record, calling up inspiration that spans across multiple eras and sounds, THE JAILBIRDS have created a potent blend of hard rock, and modern rock that is at once both nostalgic and fresh.
Over the course of the last 5 years, The Jailbirds have cut their teeth on the road, gaining experience touring and performing extensively across Ontario and Quebec, demonstrating on stage and in the studio that they’re a band you simply need to hear.
Not long before the release of their debut EP The Black River, the band was nominated for and won Best Rock Band at the 2018 Mississauga Music Awards. Since their initial release, The Jailbirds have drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Royal Blood, and Monster Truck. With a sound that is equally rooted in the rock and roll of today as it is in that of the 70’s and 80’s, The Jailbirds have established themselves as one of the most promising up and coming bands Canada has to offer.
During 2020 and into 2021, The Jailbirds have released multiple singles, earning themselves a place on Spotify’s Hard Rock Playlist, and cultivating a strong global following in the wake of songs like: “Watery Grave”, “I Will Move On”, and “Dull My Brain”. These songs are a lead up to the band’s sophomore EP release, Jungle. Heavy-hitting right out of the gate, Jungle will be released mid-spring 2021, and building on the foundational sound created in The Black River, is an EP with a story to tell.
The Jailbirds have received strong critical acclaim throughout the last few years, including being featured on Hamilton’s Y108 Rocks! and Oshawa’s 94.9 the Rock. With big plans in the works, The Jailbirds are working their way toward a bright future in the music industry; this is a band you must pay attention to.
