After six years together, over 450 blistering live shows, 11 festival appearances and a stack of sold-out headlining gigs, alternative rock maestros Jericco are gearing up to offer their adoring fan base a taste of things to come.
Stylistically, ‘Jericco’ stands out from similar acts of its genre with great pride and power. The prominent Middle Eastern influence throughout the band’s thundering live performances is completely authentic, and resonates at the core with their rapidly expanding fan base.
A band’s debut album is always a momentous occasion, and for powerhouse Melbourne rock act Jericco, theirs is no exception. After two incredible EPs, a live album and literally hundreds of live shows across the nation.
Their debut record Beautiful In Danger in it's first two weeks created waves on the iTunes charts peaking at number 12 on the rock charts and broke through the top 100 in the overall charts. A week after the release the album rose to number 16 on the AIR charts in Australia.
Produced by the great Forrester Savell, the album marks a stylistic change for the band, with their epic sound being honed and refined into 11 streamlined, accessible but still powerful rock anthems. The band have created something very original, and very beautiful in Beautiful in Danger, and it is set to take its place alongside the great debut records in Australian rock.
The band's rapidly expanding fan base has been fiercely anticipating Jericco’s return since their 2013 record, Beautiful In Danger. So much so, that they raised a massive $10,500 on the band’s Pozible campaign to go towards funding their next venture.
To salute their supporters, the band will be releasing their second single off the record 'Animal' for free download via Soundcloud and triple j Unearthed.
Album #2 'Machine Made The Animal' to be release 13th March 2015 hits us with their signature driving bass lines with melodic vocals, with each song carrying its own yet belonging entirely within the album. The powerhouse Melbourne rock act experiment with synths, dancing drums, and their ever-present chorus hooks and sliding bass.
