by The Jim Jones Revue

The Jim Jones Revue's new album Burning Your House Down will be released by Liberator Music (Punk Rock Blues Records / [PIAS] Recordings) on October 29th. Produced by Jim Sclavunos (of Nick Cave &The Bad Seeds/Grinderman), Burning Your House Down captures the roar of an untamed band at the top of their game. With the microphone shredding wail of the incomparable Jim Jones at the helm, fearlessly spurred by Rupert Orton’s six-string maelstrom, Elliot Mortimer’s savaged ivories and the jackhammer rhythm section of drummer Nick Jones and bassist Gavin Jay, The Jim Jones Revue swing like a giant ball and chain.

In the last few years The Jim Jones Revue have swiftly progressed from their earliest shows in the dive bars of East London to staking their claim as an unstoppable force on today’s British rock 'n' roll scene. Since the day Steve Lamacq announced on his 6 Music show "I think I may have something here" and proceeded to play tracks from the band's eponymous debut album, The Jim Jones Revue juggernaut has not looked back.

The first single off Burning Your House Down will be High Horse. Complementing this release, The Jim Jones Revue play an array of UK Summer festival dates including Latitude, Hop Farm, Bestival, and Tapestry. Later this year a world tour commences, encompassing the UK, Europe, the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Extending from late 2010 into 2011, the band is destined to leave a trail of scorched earth in its wake.

A rabid fan-base and radio DJ champions like Marc Riley, Gideon Coe, Mark Lamarr and John Kennedy have made The Jim Jones Revue a true international underground sensation. Steve Lamacq’s on-air heads up to Jack White led directly to The Jim Jones Revue scoring a support slot with Dead Weather. MOJO has hailed them as one of the bands to look out for in 2010, with a nomination in this year's MOJO Honours List for a "Best Newcomer Award". With heaps of accolades, it’s no wonder the band’s star continues to rise; with Burning Your House Down there's a fair chance they'll soar straight into orbit.
