“Blown away by this band- you must see them if you can!” – Jeremy Vine, BBC Radio 2
To celebrate 10 years since From The Jam’s genesis, Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings have announced they will be releasing a live album, featuring songs performed at various venues across the UK.
“We often reflect on our most memorable shows and the new live album will encapsulate these, illustrating the very best of the band’s live performance, where the band and crowd were at one with each other, creating an exhilarating power packed set that still echoes around these venues to this day”, says front man and bassist Bruce Foxton.
“A sincere touch and lashings of fiery rock’n’roll”- Guitar and Bass
‘From The Jam Live!’ has been an album a long time coming. Over the past 10 years From The Jam have toured relentlessly, having played almost 200 headline shows in the UK since their inception in 2007. Throughout this time, they’ve gained a reputation for the kind of incendiary live performances that sealed the reputation of The Jam all those years ago, being described as “incredibly exciting” by the Daily Mirror and “sounding dynamic as ever” by the Daily Record.
Having these incredible performances captured on ‘From The Jam Live!’ makes this album an exciting and necessary addition to Foxton and Hastings’ discography. Lead vocalist and guitarist Hastings “felt it [was] time to release a ‘live’ album as it’s been 10 years since the live DVD ‘A First Class Return’ was filmed at The Forum, Kentish Town. We’ve toured most countries now over the years but you can’t beat a sold out British crowd to play to!”
From The Jam are touring the UK throughout the autumn and winter. A list of live dates can be found here.

“There may never be a Jam reunion but it’s reassuring to see someone as talented and passionate as Bruce Foxton being able to take these wonderful old songs out on the road and communicate so successfully with this Modern World”- LouderThanWar
