News: Jungle announce run of UK, European and North American headline dates

Today Jungle have announced a run of new live shows confirmed for this April in North America and May in the UK and Europe (full list of dates below). Jungle, who are known for their mesmeric modern soul and thrilling seven-piece live band, will return to the festival stage this spring with appearances at Coachella in Indio, CA and Art Rock Festival in Saint-Brieuc, France.

Josh Lloyd-Watson and Tom McFarland, the production duo behind Jungle, have been splitting time between London and Los Angeles for the making of their forthcoming second album that they described to Q Magazine as a, “Post-apocalyptic radio station playing break-up songs. It’s like you’re tuning into a fucked -up station, catching little bits.” The in-the-studio interview also revealed that late last year Jungle took a break from the recording studio to “road-test new material to intimate crowds…(which) constitutes part of their second album’s recording process” and as Lloyd-Watson further explained to Q Magazine, “We’re playing the tracks live, gauging the reaction, and tweaking the record..It’s made it better.”
