The Jezabels reunite for 10 year anniversary tour

Australian indie rockers are celebrating 10 years of their award-winning album, Prisoner, by getting back together for a national tour.

Formed in 2007, Australian indie rock band, The Jezabels, took the world by storm with their first EP release The Man Is Dead in 2009 before winning gold at the ARIA’s in 2010 and 2011 and after taking a break for the past few years, the band are getting back together to tour the country for the first time in a long time.

The tour will celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their 2011 Australian Music Prize, ARIA & AIR Award Winning, ARIA #2, iTunes #1, Gold Album Prisoner!

For the first time, the band will be playing their most successful record, in its entirety live on stage.

Sydney cinematic instrumental band We Lost The Sea will be joining them for all shows. Since 2007, We Lost The Sea have presented their post-rock atmospheric, melodic, crushing guitars to fans across the globe, loved for their emotional, energetic live shows. Often drawing comparisons to the likes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cult Of Luna, Mogwai and Sigur Ros.

“We couldn’t be more excited to be getting back together again for an Australian tour to celebrate the tenth anniversary of our debut album ‘Prisoner’,” says the band.

“We are pleased to say we’ll be playing this baby live in full for the first time. It’s been a hell of a decade since it came out, but it’s made us all the more grateful for some of the things we took for granted.

“Like so many bands, playing our records live was always as important, if not more important, than making those records. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate ‘Prisoner’ and say thank you to our fans that have supported us over the years than to announce this tour. We hope you can join us.”

Prisoner is a panoramic study of tension and emancipation, from the echoing stone cathedral of the title track to the sun-blasted morning of the first single, Endless Summer; from the cloistered atmospherics of the instrumental interlude, Austerlitz, to the chiming and climbing pop of Deep Wide Ocean and the quiet reflecting pool of Peace of Mind.
