Of the upcoming tour, frontman Sam Hales says, "For us, this is a really exciting time to experiment with new sounds and push the set into a new place. This record has been a really simple transition into a live set, and we can't way to play the new songs." Fresh from the release of their sophomore EP Verses, joining the band as they make their way around the country will be sibling duo LASTLINGS, alongside South Australia up-and-comers Heaps Good Friends, whose infectious track ‘Let’s Hug Longer’ saw them land the Groovin The Moo Adelaide triple j Unearthed competition earlier this year.
Recorded at Empire Studios in Brisbane, ‘Quiet Ferocity’ was a result of frontman Sam Hales' “5 days a week, 9-5” approach to the creation of album number three. Recorded and produced entirely themselves, the 10-track album features new single ‘On Your Way Down’ and ‘Feel The Way I Do,’ which has nearly cracked over 2 million streams and has reached #14 most played track at triple j this year.
Racking up over 30 million Spotify streams, The Jungle Giants are the poster people for creative risks in the studio. As seen throughout the journey from their first EP to triple j feature albums Learn To Exist and follow-up Speakerzoid, the new album showcases a seamless creative pairing of songwriting and diverse production methods.
Recently whipping crowds into a frenzy on Australia’s favourite regional touring festival Groovin The Moo, The Jungle Giants have played played shows in LA, New York, Toronto, Austin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Jakarta. With sold-out headline dates and appearances at all major Australian festivals, audiences can expect performances filled with charging dance hooks and contagious scream-your-lungs-out choruses. Their new album marks a key stylistic and musical evolution for the band, creating a genre-bending universe that’s entirely their own. Quiet Ferocity is infectious.
