Jezabels Announce ‘Prisoner’ Tenth Anniversary Nationwide Tour
The Jezabels have announced a nationwide tour to celebrate ten years of their debut album “Prisoner”.
Running throughout June, the tour will see the band perform the entire record live on stage for the first time.
“It’s been a hell of a decade that [âPrisonerâ] came out, but it made us all the more grateful for some of the things we took for granted, âthe group said in a statement.
âLike so many bands, playing our records live has always been as important, if not more important than making these records. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate âPrisonerâ and to thank our fans and the live music industry who have supported us over the years than to announce this tour. “
Tickets for the tour will go on sale this Thursday (November 4) from 12:00 p.m. local time until Living country.
Released in 2011, “Prisoner” won the 2011 Australian Music Award and reached No. 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Earlier this year, the band also announced a tenth anniversary vinyl pressing for âPrisoner,â which will be released on November 19.
The Jezabels released two more albums after “Prisoner”, “The Brink” in 2014 and “Synthia” in 2016. They also released a single single, ‘The Others’, in 2017. Speaking to NME last year, singer Hayley Mary said there was no new music in the works.
“If we happen to make a record it’s usually by accident because we’ve got together and we’ve got a show to rehearse for and we’ve got a bunch of songs and we’re like ‘maybe we should. save them, “” she said.
In recent years, Mary has released two solo EPs, âThe Piss, The Perfumeâ in 2020 and âThe Dripâ in 2021. Earlier this year, keyboardist and songwriter Heather Shannon released her solo piano album âMidnight Sunâ . Bandmate Sam Lockwood also announced a new project, Goddess911.
