SEE YOU ON ZUMA BEACH
Well, it’s been a busy start to the year so far – we spent March and April playing shows throughout Europe with Mumford and Sons as well as a string of our own in Holland, Germany and Denmark. We also released our first live album on double vinyl – “Live At The Royal Festival Hall” on Record Store Day 2013. Capturing the energy of a live show on record is something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and it feels good to have a souvenir of one of the most enjoyable Jets gigs to date.
After a couple of weeks of sunning ourselves back in London, we are now ready to head back out on the road for the second leg of the Mumfords world tour. America!!!
Beginning up in the Canadian Rockies, the tour takes us right down the west coast through Washington (with a stop in North Bend, aka Twin Peaks), Oregon, California (where we will also play our own San Francisco date) and then across though the south – Arizona, New Mexico, Texas (catch our own show in Austin) and Louisiana, with a big outdoor show to end the tour in Kansas.
Taking Radlands back to the land which inspired it, is exiting for us. Austin was the band’s home for a while back in the summer of 2011 so returning there with a set of Radlands-heavy material feels like coming full circle. We will be documenting the things we see along the way and playing sessions wherever we can so be sure to stay tuned if you want to see what we’re getting up to.
Even better, if you live in the states let us know if you are coming to see us play and we will look out for you.
