The Screaming JetsGet Ready To Rock Australia – The Screaming Jets Are Coming To A Town Near You

The upcoming national tour for The Screaming Jets is going to be something very special, for fans and the band alike. The iconic rock band, originally from Newcastle, will be celebrating 25 years – yes, a quarter of a century – of great Aussie rock. 25 years seems like a hell of a long time to stick at one job, but when your job is to rock out as much as you can - it can feel like it’s flying by in the blink of an eye.

With 6 studio albums under their belt, and literally thousands of gigs throughout the world from one horse towns to global meccas, the Jets have been there and done that….when it comes to this crazy rock n roll circus. To celebrate this massive milestone The Screaming Jets are heading back on the road in October to celebrate with all their fans and friends round this big brown rocking land.

Lead singer Dave Gleeson says this is a pretty massive milestone for the band whose humble beginnings started winning a Battle of the Bands competition. “As a young guy in a band, I think it was always a goal to be around for as long as you possibly could,” he says. “I mean, there were – and probably still are – cover bands that were around for 10 or 20 years in Newcastle, so I remember being stoked when our first band Aspect reached its three year mark. We released a cassette called Vengeance 303. Three years and 300 gigs, we were pretty proud. To reach the quarter of a century mark is obviously awesome. Sadly, things haven’t always gone to plan and we have lost a few comrades along the way.”

There is also an element of disbelief that the band that started with mates gigging around their home town in the late 80s has reached such a milestone, releasing some of the country’s most iconic songs along the way. With tracks like Better, Helping Hand, October Grey, Sad Song and their revered cover of Shivers, The Screaming Jets have become part of the Australian music psyche. “To think we started in 1989 and we’re still doing it 25 years later to massive crowds around the country is unbelievable,” says Dave. “Anyone who’s seen The Screaming Jets’ “Insanitary” video would know that I expected to be dead by 30, which would definitely have put a dent in our 25 year celebrations.”

The Screaming Jets won’t just be celebrating a quarter of a century on their upcoming tour, but also sharing tracks from their as yet untitled new album, of all fresh material. Dave says it’s important to the band to create new material. Bass player Paul Woseen has been writing tracks, as has Dave and during the times the band are together, they’ve also been penning tracks for the upcoming release. “Like with all our albums, the songs come from all different directions and everyone gets to put themselves right into it,” says Dave “It’s what feeds the desire to get out on the road. There is a real energy that comes from playing songs you have recently created together. Bernard Fanning put it perfectly when he commented about a song coming from nothing. Before you put pen to paper, pick to guitar, breath to words, there was nothing. A thought becoming reality by our own hand that other people get off on, that’s why it’s the best job in the world.”

Gearing up for a massive celebration as they hit the road from October, The Screaming Jets are bringing the best of the best to audiences around the country. After their massive tour in 2013, these new dates are highly anticipated and it’s not just the fans that are looking forward to it. “We can’t wait to get out on the road to tour Australia again,” Dave says. “This tour is going to be epic. Not only celebrating 25 years of the Jets music we all know and love, but busting out tracks from our new album.”

The Screaming Jets new, as yet untitled album, is due for release to coincide with the tour. More details will be announced shortly.
