UK based, breakout act Jungle have premiered the first track from their upcoming full-length album, due out on XL Recordings this summer. The collective is set to unveil their live performance with a series of debut U.S. shows kicking off with two SOLD OUT shows in New York starting March 8 at Rough Trade and then March 9 at Mercury Lounge. The band will then head to SXSW and after that Los Angeles (full list of dates below).
"Jungle" can be described as a complex mixture of things and the London based collective have claimed the moniker because their music conveys just that. Combining what The Guardian notes as "tribal in terms of rhythm but postpunk in sensibility" and Brooklyn Vegan proclaims has "a real vintage-ness here, recalling the period of funk and soul just as those genres started transitioning into disco," Jungle has quickly perked the curiosity of media across the globe.
JUNGLE upcoming tour dates:
3/8 Brooklyn, NY Rough Trade NYC (SOLD OUT)
3/9 New York, NY Mercury Lounge (SOLD OUT)
3/11 Austin, TX Spotify House
3/12-3/15 Austin, TX SXSW
3/17 Los Angeles, CA The Echo
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
