triple j, Select Music and Amplifire Present
Following the announcement of their highly anticipated third album Quiet Ferocity out July 7th, Brisbane-based four-piece The Jungle Giants today share details of their upcoming Australia and New Zealand album tour this August. Beginning August 18th, the only tour they will do in 2017, will see the band hit capital cities around the country as well as Byron Bay and the Central Coast. Playing both all ages and over 18’s shows, the indie outfit will also travel to Auckland, marking their first ever New Zealand appearance. Tickets on-sale Friday 9th June at 9am.
Recorded at Empire Studios in Brisbane, ‘Quiet Ferocity’ was a result of front man Sam Hales’ “5 days a week, 9-5” approach to the creation of album number three. Recorded and produced entirely themselves, the 10-track album features new single ‘On Your Way Down’ and ‘Feel The Way I Do,’ which is currently sitting at over 1.6 million streams and has reached #14 most played track at triple j this year.
Racking up over 30 million Spotify streams, The Jungle Giants are the poster people for creative risks in the studio. As seen throughout the journey from their first EP to triple j feature albums Learn To Exist and follow-up Speakerzoid, the new album showcases a seamless creative pairing of songwriting and diverse production methods.
Recently whipping crowds into a frenzy on Australia’s favourite regional touring festival Groovin’ The Moo, The Jungle Giants have played shows in LA, New York, Toronto, Austin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta. With sold-out headline dates and appearances at all major Australian festivals, audiences can expect performances filled with charging dance hooks and contagious scream-your-lungs-out choruses. Their new album marks a key stylistic and musical evolution for the band, creating a genre-bending universe that’s entirely their own. Quiet Ferocity is infectious. So get ready - it’s coming for you too.
