On the heels of two sold-out NYC shows, six performances at SXSW and a sold-out show in Los Angeles on Monday night, London collective Jungle have announced they'll return to North America this June. Kicking off on June 6 in Los Angeles at the El Rey Theatre the band will travel across North America ending the tour on June 19 in Philadelphia (full list of dates below). Jungle will release a 12" EP this May on XL Recordings that includes "Busy Earning," "Platoon," and "The Heat," which will be followed by a debut album this summer.
Before heading to the states Jungle played their second ever London gig at the Village Underground to a sold-out crowd of 1,000 people. With The Guardian claiming of the band's live performance: "This year's Disclosure, Jungle will destroy the 2014 festival circuit," and the NME noting that Jungle's shows were "fully justifying their billing as one of Britain's most promising new bands."
Based around a core musical duo known simply as 'J' and 'T' who expand to a thrilling seven piece live band, Jungle make mesmeric, modern soul with true global appeal.
"Busy Earnin" is the groups third single. It's music video is directed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch and the band's own 'J', the same team that made the videos for Jungle's previous acclaimed singles, "Platoon" and "The Heat," which all have now been viewed over 4.9 million times between them.
