NEW ALBUM SYNTHIA + NATIONAL TOUR NEXT FEBRUARY & MARCH ANNOUNCED
‘It takes a ballsy band to play the Sydney Opera House after just two albums … their ambition was given a pretty fair chance by a band which plays well enough to impress, a batch of songs which in their best moments have a soaring reach… and a singer who grew in confidence through the night until she was performing a lap dance on a woman from the front row and making it seem ridiculous and perfect.’ – The Sydney Morning Herald
2016 sees The Jezabels return with their third studio LP Synthia, released independently on February 12 via MGM Distribution. After 18 months off the road, writing and recording with long-time producer Lachlan Mitchell, The Jezabels and Frontier Touring are excited to announce a national major cities tour with special guest, 21-year-old electro pop sensation Eves The Behavior.
High expectations are a given now for The Jezabels, seven years since those first EPs – The Man Is Dead, She’s So Hard and Dark Storm – began their slow burn from Sydney to the world; four years since Prisoner scooped the Australian Music Prize and set stages ablaze from their breakthrough performance at Splendour in the Grass to Lollapalooza; and almost two years since The Brink and the spectacular global onslaught that followed, with talked about live performance slots at Montreal Jazz Festival, Glastonbury, T in The Park, Deichbrand and more.
Although the first official single from the new album isn’t due for release until early 2016, the band have released the video for six-minute epic ‘Come Alive’ online to give fans a taste of what’s to come. Watch the video here.
‘What would you say on your deathbed? What will your regrets be? I think mine might be, ‘I was scared’. So take that and act on it now. Now that, for western women at least, some of the real, tangible obstacles are being dismantled, we've got to approach the internal ones.’ – Hayley Mary
The Jezabels are:
Sam Lockwood guitar / Nik Kaloper drums
Hayley Mary vocals / Heather Shannon keys
Synthia is in store February 12th 2016 independently via MGM. Album pre-order and ticketing bundles are available – go here for details: thejezabels.com.

Eves The Behavior
21-year-old electro pop sensation Eves The Behavior will be joining The Jezabels at all shows. One of the most exciting young Australian artists to emerge this year released her self-titled debut EP in July to critical acclaim. Since adding ‘THE BEHAVIOR’ to her moniker at the end of 2014, the performer known for her lush, dark electro-pop has signed a deal with ATC Management (Nick Cave, Warpaint), has spent time in the US and the UK working with songwriters such as Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Samuel Dixon (Sia, Adele) and Chris Walla (Deathcab For Cutie) and has also just inked a recording deal with UK label, Island Records where she will count Mumford and Sons, Hozier, Disclosure, PJ Harvey and Florence and the Machine as label mates.
