Jettblack start work on new album

Fresh from supporting Record Store Day with a split 7” single (on Spinefarm) with legendary party-starters Hellyeah, UK rockers Jettblack have been confirmed to appear on the Jagermeister stage at this year’s Sonisphere Festival, set to run from July 8th – 10th.

Says JB bassist Tom Wright…
“To be playing one of the biggest metal festivals is one thing, but to be on the same bill as four of the biggest metal bands of all time is f**king amazing!”

In the meantime, the four will be undertaking a full UK tour, co-headlining with fellow homegrown outfit, Heaven’s Basement.

Many of the shows have already been announced, but the complete list of dates – all in May – is as follows:

5th Leicester, Sub 91
6th York, Duchess
7th Grimsby, Yardbirds
8th Manchester, Moho Live
10th Nottingham, Rock City
11th Newcastle, Trillian’s Rock Bar
12th Wolverhampton, Slade Rooms
13th Sheffield, Corporation
14th Hertfordshire, Attic
15th Wrexham, Central Station
17th Stoke, Sugarmill
18th London, Camden Underworld
19th Southampton, Talking Heads
20th Margate, Westcoast Bar
22nd Exeter, Cavern

Jettblack have now started to record the follow-up to last year’s debut album, ‘Get Your Hands Dirty’, released on the Spinefarm label. Once again, the band are working with Dan Weller (ex-SikTh guitarist, producer of Young Guns, etc.) on this as-yet-untitled outing, with brand new tracks such as ‘Temptation’ and ‘Black Gold’ set for inclusion.

The album is scheduled for release via Spinefarm in Autumn 2011, with the lead single/video surfacing in support of the band’s Sonisphere appearance.
