Indie Band The Static Jacks Kick Off Summer Tour with The Futureheads

thestaticjacksNew Jersey’s melodic punk rockers The Static Jacks are kicking off a slew of summer tour dates this month in support of their debut EP – Laces – out now and produced by Andrew Maury (RAC).

The band has already shared the stage with Titus Andronicus and Tokyo Police Club among others.  Now they are adding The Futureheads and We Were Promised Jet Packs to that illustrious list.

The Static Jacks (vocalist Ian Devaney, guitarists Henry Kaye and Michael Sue-Poi, bassist Spencer Kimmins, and drummer Nick Brennan) are a rare and refreshing act.

This young quintet from Westfield, NJ has embraced the D.I.Y. approach and each member is involved with every single aspect of recording and releasing music, no matter how small.

The band played conventional gigs at noteworthy venues in the Northeast including Mercury Lounge, Bowery Ballroom, Maxwell’s in Hoboken, and The Middle East in Boston as well as busking around NYC – often playing acoustically to large crowds in Union Square and Williamsburg.  They also recorded and released Laces this past fall and it caught the attention of bloggers and critics alike.

Now with their debut EP out, numerous gigs under their belt, and a slew of amazing tour dates kicking off this month – you’ll be hearing a lot more about The Static Jacks in the months ahead.  Confirmed tour dates below and check out
