JEFF The Brotherhood have announced details of their Spring tour, which kicks off on March 27th in St. Louis. The band, which is brothers Jake (guitars, vocals) and Jamin Orrall (drums) will perform half of their set as they traditionally do, a duo, and half the set as a quartet, adding guitarist, Karl (from St. Paul. MN and he is a Pisces) as well as keyboardist, Christina (from Nashville TN and she is Taurus). They are already a very power musical motor as a duo, but when expanding the Brotherhood to a quartet what can one expect?  Massive voluminous wallop and mind-melting sonic radnasity, that’s what.

Jake Orrall explains: “We are doing the show half classic and half beefed up jam style.  We’ve been playing just the two of us for 10+ years and frankly it’s starting to get boring, so fuck it, let’s mix it up. Who’s gonna stop us?”   Amen Brother!

In addition to its club tour, the band will perform at this year’s Coachella Festival, as well as the Mission Creek Festival in Iowa City and the Middle of the Map Festival in Kansas City, MO, in April.

Following non-stop touring that took them around the globe plus a couple highly-entertaining TV appearances JEFF The Brotherhood return to the U.S. in support of their critically acclaimed album Hypnotic Nights, (co-produced with Dan Auerbach). As expected, just as each of their previous albums, “Nights” has earned the Orrall brothers, glowing accolades for their high-energy, minimalist-maximalist approach to songwriting, recording and live performances from such outlets as Rolling StoneSpinThe New York TimesUSA Today, Pitchfork and countless others:

“One of the hardest working bands in showbiz, they do it all by themselves. They are truly a dying breed.”

– AOL/Spinner.Com

“One of the best rock shows around. Hypnotic Nights is their poppiest yet, but still full of headbanging garage rock: good time anthems.” – Stereogum.Com

“When I want to hear some real &[email protected]#$ rock ‘n’ roll, I reach for these guys. With a decade’s worth of monstrous albums behind them, they really ought to rule the galaxy by now. maybe things will change now that they’ve signed with Warner.”   —   NPR/All Songs Considered
