We are The Jackobins, 5 guys from a certain famous musical city on the banks of the River Mersey, England. Aside from the obvious fondness for all things moptop, our influences range from Queen to The Stone Roses, Velvet Underground, Blind Melon, U2 and Keane to Oasis with Hendrix and The Cult thrown into the mix for good measure (along with sprinklings of The Killers and The Kings Of Leon, The Wombats, QOTSA). Our trademark is the anthemic sound of most of our songs (big is beautiful!) yes, we are megalomaniacs when it comes to writing, and just love those massive chorus sing alongs, (and our fans seem to concur!), and as such our live shows are usually big affairs. We have just released our debut E.P. ‘Ghosts’ last December, recording the record at the famous ‘Motor Musuem’ in Liverpool (actually just across the park from the bands shared house) and have just launched our Vevo channel along with videos for two of the four tracks from the E.P. (‘The Otherside’ and ‘Ghosts’). At the moment, we are in the studio writing new material and working towards the release of a double A-side this Spring. We hope to get across the pond and do some shows in Canada soon!
Lots of love from Liverpool,
