Atlantic recording group Jet has revealed the first details of their eagerly awaited second album. Dubbed "Shine On" the Aussie rock sensations' follow-up to 2003's RIAA platinum-plus debut, "Get Born" is set to land in stores on October 3rd.
Produced by Dave Sardy - who helmed "Get Born," as well as recent efforts by such bands as Oasis and Dirty Pretty Things - the album sees Jet again putting their own contemporary stamp on classic guitar-fuelled rock 'n' roll. The album's first single, "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is," will impact multiple radio formats on August 7th.
The Melbourne-based band spent much of 2005 and 2006 writing and demoing "Shine On" at a variety of studios around the world, including Barbados, Massachusetts, and their home country of Australia. The sessions wound up this spring with a marathon burst of creativity at Sardy's Hillside Manor Studios in Los Angeles.
Coinciding with the release of "Shine On" Jet will embark on a whirlwind tour of the U.S., slated to run from September 18th through October 6th. Dates will be announced shortly. The band will return to the States in late-November for a full-blown tour of North America.
Jet are: Nic Cester - guitar, vocals; Chris Cester - drums, vocals; Cam Muncey - guitar, vocals; Mark Wilson - bass.
