2016 sees The Jezabels return with their third studio LP, ‘Synthia’, in store February 12th independently, via MGM Distribution. After eighteen months off the road, writing and recording with long time producer Lachlan Mitchell, they are excited to announce a national, major cities tour, with special guest, twenty-one-year-old electro pop sensation Eves The Behaviour.
High expectations are a given now for The Jezabels, seven years since those first EPs, ‘The Man is Dead’, ‘She’s So Hard’ and ‘Dark Storm’ began their slow burn from Sydney to the world; four years since ‘Prisoner’ scooped the Australian Music Prize and set stages ablaze from their breakthrough performance at Splendour in the Grass to Lollapalooza, and almost two years since ‘The Brink’ and the spectacular global onslaught that followed, with talked about live performance slots at Montreal Jazz Festival, Glastonbury, T in The Park, Deichbrand and more.
Although the first official single from the new album isn’t due for release until early 2016, the band have released six-minute epic ‘Come Alive’ online to give fans a taste of what’s to come.
“What would you say on your deathbed? What will your regrets be? I think mine might be ‘I was scared’. So take that and act on it now. Now that, for western women at least, some of the real, tangible obstacles are being dismantled, we’ve got to approach the internal ones.” Hayley Mary

Sam Lockwood guitar / Nik Kaloper drums
