Jungle announce Dublin gig, second album & two new songs


Jungle have announced the release of their second album For Ever comes out on XL on September 14th. A load of tour dates were also announced including one here in Dublin.

The gig happens on February 18th in the Olympia with tickets priced from €27.50 + fees. On sale Thursday August 2nd. Or you can pre-order the album to get a pre-sale link. Full list of dates below.

The band dropped two new songs earlier this year with mixed results and one of them, ‘House in LA’ suggested they were having a hard time with “two whole years on a rewrite.”

Two more songs ‘Heavy, California’ and ‘Cherry’ were released today:

Says the press release:

“If Jungle’s first album was their imaginary soundtrack to the places they had never been, For Ever is inspired by real life experiences of the places they’d dreamed of for so long. Swapping Shepherds Bush for the Hollywood Hills, J and T set up camp in Los Angeles to write and record the album. Over time however, their romanticization of The Californian Dream clashed with the reality of actually living it, the feeling of being adrift on the West Coast compounded by the collapse of long-term relationships. Returning home to London, they teamed up with highly regarded young producer Inflo where they sought to create a “post-apocalyptic radio station playing break up songs”, whittling down loads of ideas this concept spawned into the core 13 tracks you have before you. That station and those songs and that journey are the sound of Jungle’s second album For Ever. They had to go away to come home. And what J and T lost in love, they gained in music. For Ever is for real, deeper and higher, more intimate and more expansive, feelgood and, just occasionally, feelbad. It is, then, a proper second album.
