Following their announcement last week of their headline NME Awards Show slot and their recent sold out show at Heaven in London, The Jezabels are pleased to announce a UK & European tour, on sale now, starting on 22nd February.
The Australian four-piece have spent 2011 honing their genre-defying craft. They have taken their very own brand of emotionally charged, adrenaline fuelled classic rock/pop out of their native land and cast it like some malevolent spell across the oceans, a territory at a time.
Singer Hayley Mary is nothing short of mesmerising, combining all the prowess of some of rock’s finest front women. Comparisons have been made between her and Stevie Nicks, Siouxsie Sioux, Karen O, Cyndi Lauper, Kate Bush, Florence Welch; the list goes on.
Together with Samuel Lockwood on guitar bringing a touch of organic country-folk to the band’s energy, the classically trained pianist Heather Shannon on keys and sticks-man Nik Kaloper described as a perpetual ball of rhythm, The Jezabels have created an album that is a journey through wild and savage lands. The Jezabels are one of the most unpredictably volatile and visceral new bands to emerge this year, and a live act not to be missed.
The Jezabels return to the UK ahead of their debut album Prisoner, released on Play It Again Sam Recordings on Monday 5th March 2012.
