In an Internet driven world, Auckland based Rock/Electro/Pop outfit The Jury & The Saints have climbed the charts off the back of good old fashioned touring.
Last week their new single ‘Revival’ debuted in the NZ Top 40 Chart at number 4 and in the NZ singles chart at number 1. This week the song has held its number 1 spot in the NZ singles chart and moved up 2 places to number 2 in the NZ Top 40 chart!
The band has been steadily releasing singles and videos and touring NZ & Australia over the last 3 years, which has grown them a solid fan base. ‘Revival’ is their 8th official single release proving that persistence does pay off.
The band chose to completely self-produce this latest effort, which they knew would allow them to get back to the heart of the songs and keep it raw and honest. In true Kiwi style, their new batch of songs have been recorded in their own studio, engineered and produced by the band, even creating the music video in house too.
The band puts the success of the new single down to the nationwide ‘Revolution Tour’ that they have just completed, and the fans that come out to those shows and buy a copy of the CD at the door. They would also like to thank those that have supported the band behind the scenes leading up to this, including the integral support of NZonAIR. The online video is starting to gain momentum and the band is confident that the song, which is just fresh on the online music stores, will also start to show results.
In the coming weeks the band will be appearing at several of the Smokefreerockquest regional finals, releasing a follow up single to Revival, and heading back into the studio to record more new material.
