We have The Jailbirds on this episode. Joining us are guitarist/vocals Myke Penney, guitars John Gould, and bassist Liam Hills. We chat about “Water Grave”, “Dull My Brain”, and their new release “I Will Move On” released February 2, 2021.
The drop of “Watery Grave” established the band as a Canadian rock indie band to follow. The Jailbirds offer music redolent of melodic death metal of the 70s and 80s with new raw rock talent. From 2016, the band has developed a unique sound.
The band performs solid riffs, heavy rhythm, and incredible vocals. Their music has the heaviness, grungy character of Black Sabbath. If “Watery Grave” is a radar, the band will not disenchant. This release follows a successful 2019 debut EP The Black River.
Their music is their own, tempered with the grunge, classic rock feels of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, and Royal Blood. The Black River is a dynamic EP with fantastic guitar work, restrained tones, heavy and catchy vocals, and a serious rhythm section, all owning their unique sound as musicians.
Two words. Respect. Watch. Anything this band has put out is outstanding. Their execution is top-notch professional. What strikes you most is the cohesive synergy between the three band members. The energy one feels watching The Jailbirds perform will be a deciding element in their success.
They are a band to respect, enjoy, and watch.
