The Jungle Giants - Speakerzoid Tour

Friday 26 June 2015

The Jungle Giants Australian Tour. The Jungle Giants will be performing in Fremantle (Perth)Bunbury (Perth)PerthBallarat CentralMelbourneSydneyAdelaideCanberraByron BayBrisbaneHobart and Launceston.

Hot off the back of a series of sell-out tour dates across the country, the huge success of their recent single ‘Every Kind Of Way’, and the release of their brand new single ‘Kooky Eyes’, The Jungle Giants are thrilled to reveal release details for their second album.

Out on Friday August 7, the new full-length from The Jungle Giants and the follow up to 2013’s ‘Learn To Exist’, is titled ‘Speakerzoid’.

“What’s a Speakerzoid?” I hear you ask.

It’s the result of misheard song lyrics courtesy of a friend of the band while they were enjoying the opening strains of Sonic Youth’s ‘Teenage Riot’. The band loved the made up word; it summed up the listening experience of the album so much it became the album title.

Recorded towards the close of 2014 inside a temporary studio set up near the NSW/QLD border with friend and producer Magoo, ‘Speakerzoid’ is an inventive, accomplished and ebullient record. No longer a band of talented Brisbane teenagers, The Jungle Giants have grown into a group of experienced, formidable and creative musicians filled with the sense of irrepressible vitality that has served them so well to date.

The Jungle Giants will take to the road this September and October to celebrate the album’s release. The Speakerzoid Tour will see The Jungle Giants take their indomitable live show on the road, performing in front of all-ages audiences across the country. Providing support on all shows will be Art of Sleeping, who will be touting a new album of their own, and surf-pop-party outfit Hockey Dad.

With a long history of sell-out tours behind them, tickets to The Jungle Giants’ album launch shows are sure to sell out quickly.

"There's a new edge to The Jungle Giants as a live outfit that make me stop and think, 'Damn. There's a band'". - The AU Review
