12.09.2016 - Whistlejacket + Support at Klubraum, Leipzig

We are happy to present u Whistlejacket on September 12 at Spelunke, Leipzig.


Hailing from East London with a sound to match, London has been whistling along to Whistlejacket throughout 2016 with increasing furvour. The chorus of bass heavy shoegaze, and souring guitar hooks is reaching new heights in anticipation of the band’s second release via the influential London based Independent label, Fierce Panda – expected 02/09/16. Having supported the showbiz likes of Diiv, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Yuck and Bully in London, in addition to becoming mainstays on the beaten up stages of East London’s alternative pysch scene – Whistlejacket are preparing to take the show on the road with a two week tour in September across mainland Europe. Whistlejacket will be taking in Hamburg’s Pysch Fest in addition to dates in The Hague, Amsterdam, Gronigen, Copenhagen, Hamburg, Leipzig, Saarbrucken, Munich, Nyon & Zwevegem before heading back home for their biggest headline show to date at London’s prestigious, The Lexington on the 19/09. Admirers of the band include The Horrors' Faris Badwan who described the band as "Hypnotic and immersive", X-Rocks Radio and BBC 6Music, with Whistlejacket getting regular air time & being invited to record an interview for the Steve Lamacq show & play an X-Rocks X-posure showcase at Camden’s Barfly. Oh Brother EP is released on the 02/09 with the self- titled lead single landing 19/08.
