The Boys Are Back In Town: JEFF The Brotherhood - "Sixpack" (Dan Auerbach Edit)
Nashville Rock "N" Roll revivalists JEFF The Brotherhood recently inked a record deal with Warner Bros. Hypnotic Nights (July) was co-produced along with Dan Auerbach, who's band The Black Keys also "sold out" semi-recently and have remained quite successful ever since. Jake & Jamin Orrall's very own family-owned/operated record label, Infinity Cat will co-release the new album and it's companion [digital] EP, Hypnotic Knights. I downloaded a copy of JEFF The Brotherhood's lead single, "Sixpack" before I skipped town for Maryland on Friday... No, "Sixpack" isn't a Black Flag (Rollins) cover; But honestly, it's damn near just as ferocious! After a quick first listen, I was instantly reminded of Weezer's guitar-driven Pop melodies backed by CKY's West Chester-bred Experimental "Skater Rock."
JEFF The Brotherhood are currently touring across The USA along with Best Coast up until June 2nd, and then a headlining trek running through August 3rd. Hypnotic Knights EP will be available @ JEFF's "merch booth," digitally on May 17th, and look out for Hypnotic Nights on July 17th (download card with EP). Hypnotic Knights EP is set to feature 4 Dan Auerbach-produced tracks, which will eventually re-appear on Hypnotic Nights, LP. In the meantime, check out JEFF The Brotherhood's [storied] backcatalog, which depending on who you ask... includes anywhere from 3-6 full-lengths. Infinity Cat issued their first widely-released album, Heavy Days back in 2009.
