The LFC 7″ single tracks, “Into The Sun” and “Mercy, Hallelujah”, are both included, the latter an alternative take “played like The Smashing Pumpkins would”. Honouring their New Jersey roots, short covers The Misfits and Bruce Springsteen also made the cut, as did a couple of other tracks from their debut full-length “If You’re Young”.

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.

We’re very excited to officially announce our fourth and latest signing to the Laissez Faire Club singles label: Westfield, New Jersey’s The Static Jacks.
After introducing them to you via this blog back in May, we’re pleased to be able to bring you their first ever UK release, which will be a double A-sided 7″ single (limited to just 300 copies) featuring the hard and fast, hooky as hell, festival smash in waiting “Into The Sun” and the Cure-channeling “Mercy, Hallelujah”. The record is expected to hit the shelves of all good independent record stores in late November.
Both tracks are taken from their recently released (and to date, critically acclaimed) full length “If You’re Young”, which came out in the States through Fearless Records at the end of August (and should see the light of day in the UK at some point in 2012).
The band are about to embark on a mammoth US tour with The Wombats and The Postelles (if you live in any of these cities, perhaps head on down), and we expect to announce some UK shows very soon indeed. Keep checking back for any such developments. In the meantime, listen to the single in full below, and watch two very different versions of the lead track.
