The Jezabels' new single, Rosebud, is the lead single from their debut full length album Prisoner, which will be released in the US on April 3rd through Mom + Pop. The band will be touring North America throughout April and May 2012, along with Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Imagine Dragons.
The 80's inspired video for Rosebud sees members of The Jezabels slowly spinning on the spot. The effects in the video layer them one on top of the other. At times, a burning rose is also seen.
Australian natives The Jezabels are Hayley Mary (vocals); Heather Shannon (piano, keyboard); Nik Kaloper (drums) and Samuel Lockwood (guitar). They recorded three EPs - The Man Is Dead (2009); She's So Hard (2009) and Dark Storm (2010) - as well as their debut album, with producer Lachlan Mitchell.
The aforementioned Dark Storm, upon its release, reached the top of the Australian iTunes Charts and was certified Gold. Prisoner was universally acclaimed and reached number two in the Australian charts, being kept from the top spot by Adele's 21. In addition, The Jezabels won Best Independent Artist and Best Independent EP for Dark Storm at the Australian Independent Music Awards, as well as winning the Australian Music Prize for Prisoner at the Australasian Performing Right Association (APRA).

It's Monday morning and my bones hurt. I'm tired, hung-over, and there's a slight ringing in my ears.
