Jetplane Landing - Walls Of Derry

Just when you thought it was safe to go to Derry and openly question general levels of rock commitment, JPL are back and sounding huge with fourth album Don't Try on September 2nd. We've heard the full thing and can report that rather than expand on the funk-laden left turn of the last time we saw them six years ago on Backlash Cop (STN's number nine album of the year, mind) it sounds like 2002 returning, more specifically the Million Dead/Reuben/Hundred Reasons landscape the Els Quatre Gats EP's full frontal post-hardcore assault was launched into - rarely a proper let-up, slamming boxcutter knife-edge melodies into big fuzzy riffs and Andrew Ferris' overwordy howling against the massed ranks. The pits will be unstoppable.

September dates:
2nd Sheffield Corporation
3rd Glasgow Stereo
4th Manchester Soup Kitchen
5th Nottingham Bodega
6th London Lexington
7th Cardiff Clwb Ifor Bach
11th Dublin Workman’s Club
13th Derry Glassworks
14th Belfast Limelight 2
