Rock n Roll is better than a permanent job. – a classic statement by Kal P Dal, a legendary Swedish punk/rock n roll star from the Seventies, way before the boys in Jetbone were even born. For six years Jetbone tried to combine touring with studies and work, before realizing that Kal P Dal was absolutely right. They all quit their day time jobs, gave up apartments, said goodbye to their girlfriends and agreed to do 200 gigs in 2017. While recording their forthcoming third album.
During spring they’ve been playing all over Scandinavia and in the fall a massive European tour is scheduled. And the ambitious plan and the hard work has already paid off. Recently Jetbone signed a worldwide recording and publishing deal with with BMG, and a new album will be released in the winter of 2017/18.
Jetbone was formed by a bunch of teenagers in the town of Sundsvall in the north of Sweden. Initially they played some kind of garage rock/punk, but while digging deep in their father’s record collections and listening to Seventies rock bands, they soon developed their own mix of classic rock, funk, soul and southern rock. The first, self-titled album was released in 2012 and four years later they released the acclaimed album ”Magical Ride”, a collection of 11 brilliant songs, a classic yet contemporary sound and an irresistible level of energy. In recent years, Jetbone has been touring in Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Russia. Their well deserved reputation as a great live band has been growing as a wild fire and the crowds are getting bigger each time.
