JEFF the Brotherhood Digs the Classics (11/21/14)
Still riding high from the successful release of 2012's debut album "Hynoptic Nights," this Nashville duo is back at it again.
Simply put, it's a super busy time for JEFF the Brotherhood. Back on July 29th they announced they would release a brand-new, self-produced EP of covers, entitled "Dig the Classics."
The album bowed on September 30 via Warner Brothers Records. Brothers Jake (guitar, vocals) and Jamin Orrall (drums) selected six of their favorite songs for the project, including Pixies' "Gouge Away," My Bloody Valentine's "Come In Alone," Teenage Fanclub's "Mad Dog 20/20," and Beck's "Totally Confused." The album was made available both digitally and in the 12" format pressed on purple vinyl.
"Dig the Classics" was released right before JEFF The Brotherhood launched a full-scale fall tour. Supporting on the trek were Music Band for the September dates and Diarrhea Planet on the October dates. Fans scoops up the JEFF The Brotherhood tickets as soon as they went on sale, and the tour kicked off August 8 in Charlottesville, Virginia at The Southern. It wrapped October 24- 26th after three consecutive shows at The End in Nashville, Tennessee.
JEFF The Brotherhood has also been putting the finishing touches on their next studio album, the follow to the critically acclaimed "Hypnotic Nights." It's expected to be released in early 2015.
Work ethic powers Jeff the Brotherhood (Created June 5, 2013)
Meet brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall (aka Jeff the Brotherhood) who have been making noise of all kinds since they were pretty young kids.
Of course they grew up together, but Jake and Jamin were also raised with an insatiable appetite for music. Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee, they formed a band while still in high school and used funds from pre-orders for their first album "I Like You," to also work on side projects that went on to receive critical acclaim.
Perhaps no one has worked harder than these two brothers over the last 10 years. They've been up and down the road, in big cities and small towns, and everywhere in between. Known for cacophonous live shows, they've played everywhere from privately-owned basements to large festivals like Bonnaroo. In fact, they've racked up more than 400 shows in the last two years, playing with the likes of Best Coast, The Kills, The Greenhornes and more.
Jeff the Brotherhood's sound blends elements of indie, punk, garage, and psychedelic rock. That combination, plus a relentless work ethic, set the stage for their 2012 Warner Brothers debut album "Hypnotic Nights." It was completed in just seven days, with the first single, "Sixpack," propelled by reverb-heavy guitar riffs and dynamic drumbeats. Other standouts include "Leave Me Out" and "Dark Energy," and showcase why Jeff the Brotherhood could be the next mega-stars in the music industry.
