Jerry Built – new record and tour on the way!

London upstarts Jerry Built are looking set to be one of the next big things on the UK scene, and are currently putting the finishing touches to their mini album.

The quartet, signed to Firefly Records, home to the likes of Scuttle and Travis Cut, will also be heading out on a major UK tour later in the year.

Punktastic caught up with bassist Sami who brought us up to speed. He said: “We’re
currently finishing off recording a seven track mini LP which is to be released on Firefly Records late July. It is taking longer to record than expected! Sod’s Law!

“We’re also due to be touring with Kids Near Water and Garrison in November for the Kids Near Water album tour.”

Not only that, but the mainstream music press is on their trail too, with a sidenote in this month’s Rock Sound magazine (take a bow Emily…) They even have a few (minor) celebrity friends in Drive Thru Records founders Richard and Stephanie Reines.

To catch this lot before all the Sum 41 fans know who they are, get down to one of the following shows:

July 11 – London, The Cartoon w/ Flicknife Rickshaw and Dullshine (tickets £3, doors 8.30pm)

July 24 – London, The Verge w/ Sunfactor, Joski and Dullshine (tickets £5, doors 8pm)

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
