Needle to the Groove weaves together a wide range of influences while maintaining the band’s modern take on classic hard rock.
The album’s first single, “Hell or High Water,” as well as “Hit and Run” and “Another Pretty Face,” nicely summarize the high-energy rock their fans have come to expect. Hints Jim Morrison and Scott Weiland can be heard in David Case’ vocal style in“Breakdown City,” while the tune “Without Your Man” is a slow, bluesy jam reminiscent of Cream and Jeff Beck.
Veterans of the Long Island hardcore and indie rock scene, band members Dave Case, Jonathan Cox, Joe Rubino, and Dave Musser have played in national acts such as From Autumn to Ashes and Helmet. In 2007, Cox, Rubino, and Musser recruited Dave Case and formed The Jett Blackk Heart Attack. Soon, they began playing shows and developing a following. Last year, they were voted runner-up at the Long Island Music Festival.
After opening for Foghat, Steppenwolf, and Molly Hatchet in 2009, The JBHA entered the studio to record their first album, Needle to the Groove, which debuted in May, 2010. The band also worked with director Christian Winters (Taking Back Sunday, Coheed and Cambria), to shoot the video for their first single, “Hell or High Water.”
The Jett Blackk Heart Attack is a band looking toward the future while being firmly rooted in the past, their freshman release Needle to the Groove is evidence of that.
