The March 2012 tour will coincide with the release of the single “This Time”, that looks set to do well at UK rock radio stations.
Talking of their upcoming tour, the band said;
“Our tour in the UK in October was the first time we performed in the UK. We had no expectations at all. We played seven gigs and were really surprised to get such a positive response. The tour was truly a great experience. We realised that it's totally different from other parts in Europe, where we play quite often. We are very glad to be asked to return and can’t wait to tour in March 2012. We will try to come back again and again, and please, spread the news that Elvis Jackson are coming to party & rock the house again!”
Media partner of the tour is the Big Cheese Magazine, while the distribution of all Elvis Jackson releases in Great Britain will be taken care for by the Code 7 distribution company. You will be able to find the album “Against The Gravity” in the shops in Great Britain from 30 January 2012.
There's echoes of early Offspring and Blink 182, EJ are band with such positive music and the wide-eyed self confidence to carry it off to a chance of success.
EJ have a knack for writing particularly catchy songs that transcend various genres. If FNM, Pennywise and Devildriver had kids.. well, you get the idea
