July 12, 2019 - THE JACKS--Jonny Stanback (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Tom Hunter (lead guitar, vocals), Scott Stone (bass guitar, vocals), Josh Roossin (drums/percussion)--have signed with Andrew Goodfriend at the TKO Booking Agency. Their self-titled debut EP was released June 28 on EDGEOUT Records/UMe. To blend and bring their British invasion sound of the ‘60s and ‘70s mixed with southern rock influences to the modern music era, THE JACKS joined forces with legendary producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Maroon 5, Blackberry Smoke) and mixer Andrew Scheps (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Adele, Hozier) at Los Angeles' famed Sunset Sound Recorders.

TKO’s Andrew Goodfriend added, “We are very excited to represent THE JACKS. They’re an exciting young band that we are looking forward to growing at TKO.”

After their first single, “Walk Away,” first launched on May 17, the band has been keeping busy. That same afternoon, they performed for thousands of new fans at the first-ever Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival. They also teamed up with the NHL for a promo using their single that aired throughout the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and can be seen on the NHL’s official Instagram page here. They performed as the on-stage band at the 2019 NHL Awards, and most recently as part of Ringo Starr’s Peace & Love birthday event.

“…a unique sound…catchy hooks and upbeat grooves…There is great promise here and I look forward to future full albums from this tight, talented band.” --

“THE JACKS make straight-ahead rock ’n’ roll for those who think four-piece bands will never go out of style and those who live in the present — i.e., they don’t give a whit if what is bursting through their speakers sounds too uncomfortably like the Stones, the Strokes or even the Black Keys.” --

“…amazingly addictive songs…” -- Record Journal (CT)

“…an outstanding effort and showcases their ability to create highly likable, infectious tunes that will get much radio play this summer and beyond.” --

Stay tuned for U.S. tour news, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
