Following on from our announcement a few weeks back that The Static Jacks would be touring Europe this month, they’ve added several new dates in both the UK and on the continent.
As before, the run includes three dates supporting The Wombats, which will make TSJ the first LFC Records band to play at the O2 Academy in Brixton, and now there are also shows supporting Band Of Skulls (at London’s XOYO), as well as fellow countrymen Grouplove (in Brighton) and Howler (in Paris).
The band are on the road to promote their debut full-length, “If You’re Young”, which is out through Fearless Records on 5 March. The double A-sided 7″ vinyl of “Into The Sun” / “Mercy, Hallelujah” (which we put out late last year) will be on sale on the tour, or you can pick one up before it all kicks off, from our shop.
Check out this video of the band finishing their set at Koko in November with “Into The Sun”:

Hope you all had a good weekend, and if you came down to see Deep Sea Arcade on Friday, thank you. It was great fun. This morning, we’ve got a lot of news about our next 7″ release from New Jersey’s greatest band The Static Jacks. We’ve give it to you bit by bit, here goes:
The official video to the A-side of the single “Into The Sun” is now out, and you can watch it in all its glory above. Like all great music videos, we think it adds an extra dimension to an already very strong, fist-pumping track. Have a look and see what you think.
The 7″ vinyl (“Into The Sun” b/w the Made In Chelsea featuring “Mercy, Hallelujah”), out on 28 November, is now available to pre-order from the Laissez Faire Club shop. There are only 300 copies being pressed, and the first 50 will come with an exclusive, unique photograph taken by the band on their tour with The Wombats across the US & Canada – which is still in progress as we speak. You might get a picture of them partying with Murph backstage in Ohio. It might be an open road in Arkansas, or an all-American diner in Louisiana. We don’t know, and we’re as excited as anyone to get hold of one. It’s Ebay gold if nothing else.
UK dates! Yes, the band are making their first ever trip across the pond later this month to promote the aforementioned release, and will play the following:
Thursday 24 November – 100 Club w/ Eagulls, Mazes
Friday 25 November – Club NME @ Koko w/ The Dancers
Saturday 26 November – O2 Academy, Bristol w/ Alabama 3
And finally, “Into The Sun” will be making its national radio debut on Charlie Ashcroft’s ‘Audition’ show on Amazing Radio this afternoon, at 1300 GMT. It’ll be repeated on Sunday 13 November, at 1600 GMT. After today’s show, listeners can vote for their favourite track, and the one with most votes will make the station’s main playlist. So, you know, be sure to head over to the site (or send a Tweet to Charlie saying how much you love the song) and do the right thing.

Our beloved Ice Black Birds are set to hit the road this autumn, visiting everywhere from Bath to Utrecht to Paris, and are quite possibly playing at your local watering hole along the way.
Highlights include an appearance at Manchester’s In The City Festival (last.fm stage) on 13 October, a sold out Dutch tour supporting local heroes Go Back To The Zoo from 21 to 23 October and an opening slot for We Are Scientists and The Boxer Rebellion at Paris’ Fleche d’Or on Sat 13 November. The tour will (hopefully) come to a glorious climax on Friday 26 November in London town, where they’re set to play Club NME at Koko. For a full list of dates, click here.
The band will be travelling armed with copies of their last 7″ single (‘As Birds We’d Be Fine’) put out by Laissez Faire Club Records, so if you haven’t got one yet, they’ll be – subject to availability – available to buy at these shows. Alternatively, head over to our label page, and pick one up now. The LFC shop offers signed copies, and RecordDrop.com offers free MP3s of the tracks, plus an additional bonus track (‘Problems In Hand’).
At the risk of spoiling you even further, to help prick up your ears and hopefully prise you away from the latest episode of The Inbetweeners and down to your local venue, the band are offering fans a free download of ‘Pretty Ways’, a demo they recorded in their bedrooms over the summer. Grab it below.
