Well, well, well, how the kids next door do grow up. Ladies and gentlemen, the month of May marks an important milestone in the “kids” from Jebediah’s musical lives. It’s been 10 years since the Leeming High School ball, which of course means that Jebediah have been a band for a decade. It snuck up on us all!
So, what to do to celebrate? Apart from having a bang up meal, giving each other a pat on the arse and blowing the froth of one or two bevvies, Jebediah have decided to a throw a party and travel this wide, brown land with a short and sharp tour. Jebediah’s 10th Anniversary Tour will kick off in Brisbane, will go as far wide as Tasmania (!) and even include a bunch of free entry all ages shows for the Coke Live N Local sessions.
Sharing the candle blowing duties in most cities are good friends and Perth barfly’s Red Jezebel, whose album “Revelations” has been a staple of the airwaves since it came out. Also warming up the stage will be newish wonderkids Neon, whose debut album is due at the end of June, and their new single Dizziness is all over the radio and TV. This is Jebediah’s party and you’re all invited!
In order to make these shows even more special for you, the fan, head on over to www.jebediah.net and register on the message board so you can vote for the rare tracks you want Jebediah to dust the cobwebs off, and play live on the tour. The Jebs are prepared to play almost (!) anything from their 10 year career, and the songs with the most votes in the next two weeks will get a Guernsey in the tour set list. It’s like a present to you, right? This will be the last Jebediah tour for the foreseeable future, before they head overseas and have a rest, so don’t miss the chance to see one of Australia’s best live acts.
If Jebediah’s 10th Anniversary Tour isn’t enough, there’s more. The Jebs have returned to the studio and are working on a 10 Year Anniversary EP, which will have a few surprises for old and new fans and is due for release on June 20. Stay tuned for more news on The 10th Anniversary Tour EP in the coming weeks.
