Auckland based 3 piece The Jury & the Saints have announced the release of their brand new single ‘Revival’ to coincide with NZ Music month and a nationwide tour.
Since the band exploded on the scene in 2010, they have been used as music televisions theme song, toured Australia and NZ with Paramore, had a number 1 video, a top 5 single, top 10 iTunes, released an EP and a full length album, had Stan Walker feature on one of their songs, a mini documentary made about them, released 7 singles and videos, had over 70,000 online views of their videos and live performances – oh and toured the country 4 times!
The new single ‘Revival’ is a reflection of the bands drive for music that is real and energetic. Jesse Smith, lead singer and guitarist for the band had this to say of the sound of their new recordings “Its no secret that the music world is dominated by pop and R’n’B at the moment, but Rock/Punk has never been about trends or fashion, its about the heart and soul of music and the fans who keep turning out to the shows and who stay connected online. Our new songs have a raw sound, we kept the focus on the song rather than the details of recording.”
To support the release of the single the band have been confirmed as headliners for the nationwide Revolution Tour and will also continue to work with the Smokefree Rockquest events where the band finds excitement in seeing young NZ talent being nurtured.
The new single and video for ‘Revival’ will be released on the 21st May 2012. For all information on their upcoming shows and music;
