THE JEZABELS CHAT LIVE ON YOWIE.COM
FANS INVITED TO ASK ABOUT FALL TOURS AND UPCOMING ALBUM PRISONER
THURSDAY, AUGUST 25 AT NOON EST / 3 PM PST
A 14+ hour time difference and over 16,000 miles are tough barriers to breach. Yowie.com is making it a bit easier for Sydney’s The Jezabels to connect with their fans overseas via a live chat, scheduled for Thursday, August 25th. The band plans to answer fans’ questions about their European and North American tours this Fall as well as their upcoming debut LP Prisoner. Interpol, Deerhunter, Fucked Up, Melvins and ISIS have all used Yowie to connect with fans so please share the link, RSVP, and log in on August 25th!
The Australian moody-pop quartet The Jezabels has been all over the world and back. Upon completing their European tour in September, the four will be returning to the U.S. and Canada in November to tour with the Canadian indie rock band Hey Rosetta! While already a well-recognized name at home, The Jezabels has been building an international buzz since their first North American shows at last year’s CMJ Music Festival in New York. The hype has escalated through Canadian Music Week, Austin’s SXSW, and Brighton’s Great Escape. In between, they’ve toured Canada, the U.S., Australia, the UK, and Western Europe. Now warriors of the road, the band has continued to perfect their self-described “intense-indie” live show, bringing “emotional intensity and grace” (Chart Attack) to the stage, and are excited to be returning to North America in the fall.
After releasing a trilogy of EPs, the band is currently putting the finishing touches on their debut LP Prisoner. A preview of the album can be found in their newest track “Eternal Summer” available for download and sharing. As heralded by The A.V. Club, “Pitched somewhere between The Cranberries’ edge-of-the-world howl and Arcade Fire’s fiery emotional release, (their three EPs) shot the Sydney quartet to the top of the Australian charts; its forthcoming full-length debut seeks to do the same internationally.”
