Bands to Watch #31: Jubilee

By on Thursday, 11th September 2008 at 4:21 pm

Like your music loud, dirty and played by men with long hair? Then why not check out hot up-and-comers Jubilee.

Made up of Aaron North on vocals and guitar (from Nine Inch Nails, Buddyhead, The Icarus Line), Michael Shuman on vocals and bass (from Queens of the Stone Age, Wires On Fire), Jeff Lynn on guitar and organ (from Wires On Fire), and Troy Petrey on drums (from The Icarus Line), you can pretty much guarantee before listening that Jubilee were going to be good.

Then you actually listen to them, and just fall slowly in love with their britpop mixed with Jane’s Addiction style euphoric rock. Hailing from LA they’ve decided to come over the pond to test out their new material, and it’s already going down a storm with rave reviews from Kerrang,

I’m not normally one for this sort of stuff, but they really are quite good. Check them out on tour at the dates below, tickets available from the usual places.
