2015 is set to be an enormous year for The Jungle Giants, with the affable Brisbane four-piece announcing their sophomore album and a string of tour dates.
The album has been granted the curious title of Speakerzoid, which seems a suitably peculiar choice given the band’s recent musical direction. Both singles released from the album – Every Kind of Way and, more recently, Kooky Eyes – have showcased a bold, quirky and inventive side to The Jungle Giants, of which only shades were present on 2013’s Learn to Exist.
Speakerzoid is set to be unleashed on August 7, with the accompanying tour kicking off in Fremantle about a month later. Support comes from two very talented Australian bands – Art of Sleeping (who will have an album out themselves by then) and larrikin surf-rock duo Hockey Dad.
Tickets go on sale Monday the 29th June, and are available here.
