FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MEDIA RELEASE

The Screaming JetsAussie rock legends The Screaming Jets are gearing up for two incredible rock shows this coming Australia Day weekend in Sydney. Hot off the heels of the band’s mammoth Atomic 47 25th anniversary national tour in 2014, The Jets are doing what they do best… rocking out and rocking hard! When it comes to Aussie rock, these former Novocastrians are renowned for their unforgettable live shows and an evening in the company of the Jets is guaranteed to get the celebrations started.

For lead singer Dave Gleeson, there is no better way to spend the weekend than playing a live show to Aussie music fans. “As far as we’re concerned, Australia Day is a far more important celebration than New Year’s, so we always try to find a cool gig to play to celebrate,” he says. “When it comes to iconic Aussie gigs to play on Australia Day, The Bridge sits at the top of the tree. So bring your best ‘Oi Oi Ois’ and rock out with the boys.”

In 2014 The Screaming Jets celebrated a massive milestone – 25 years of rock! 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. They undertook a massive national tour that saw sell-out shows around the country and garnered them a whole new legion of rock music fans.

Lead singer Dave Gleeson says the milestone was remarkable, especially considering the band’s humble beginnings… they hit notoriety 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 was 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.”
