The Jezabels announce October national tour for their debut LP Prisoner

The pathways leading to the GW Mclennan Stage were shut down on Saturday when The Jezabels executed their set at Splendour In The Grass, due to too much traffic. Those who did make it in were treated to one of the greatest sets of their career. Having spent a good deal of 2011 touring overseas in the UK, USA, Europe, Canada & Singapore The Jezabels return to stages here at home in October to launch their debut LP Prisoner (in store independently through MGM September 16th 2011).

Powerful, poetic, bold and pure, Prisoner is the first full-length release from the Sydney based quartet. A stunning collection of songs that showcases maturity in song writing, well beyond their young years. Recorded mostly in The Attic Studio in Sydney, the band have continued their relationship with long time producer Lachlan Mitchell, the man behind their first three EPs. The album has been mixed by Peter Katis (Jonsi, The National, Interpol) at Tarquin Studio, Connecticut and Mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound, New York.

The first single from the album Endless Summer, has been added to Triple J and indie radio across the country in the first week of service.

The Jezabels will be joined on tour by Newfoundland-based, indie-orchestral-pop rockers Hey Rosetta! Recently here to support fellow countryman City and Colour, they came together in 2005 and have earned numerous accolades (including being shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize) and a reputation for incendiary live performances.

Triple J Unearthed favourites Alpine will round out the touring party with their bright, colourful fusion of indie synth pop with dreamy, hypnotic rhythms, luscious harmonies and beats.

“Increasingly adept at flooding our ears with thundering emotions. Almost operating outside trend, their music more simply exists than chases our approval. They are here to stay.”
Clash Magazine UK

“While The Beta Band released arguably the finest musical trilogy of all time… The Jezabels have run them pretty close.” Artrocker UK

“The Jezabels are the Aussie band creating the biggest stir at the South By Southwest music conference in Austin, Texas. The Sydney four-piece arrived at the annual industry bash this week as part of Australia’s biggest delegation of talent ever sent – and with a reputation on the rise.” AAP

Prisoner will be in store September 16th through MGM Distribution. Limited edition signed copies, ticket bundles and other goodies will be available from various outlets as pre orders, go to for details.
