Contact Details

Boredom and Joy is the new single and album from Jets Overhead. It follows up on the success of 2009′s No Nations; an album that brought the band to new heights with major festival performances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, and the World Expo in Shanghai. Jets Overhead’s dreamy rock soundscapes have been featured on major network television programs including Bones, House, and Pretty Little Liars, and their previous single, “Heading For Nowhere,” charted nationally at Canadian alternative radio and received regular play on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic.

Produced by Emery Dobyns (Noah & The Whale, Travis, Patti Smith, Antony & The Johnsons), Boredom and Joy was recorded in New York at Stratosphere Sound and Flux Studios. The album features the band’s trademark vocal and melodic interplay, set against a lush backdrop of organic and sequenced instrumentation. Its lyrical themes explore an evolving relationship that moves quietly from certainty to uncertainty.

Formed in 2003, the band’s critical acclaim eventually led to a JUNO nomination (Canadian Grammy equivalent) in 2007 for New Group Of The Year. The band also got early attention in 2006 by developing a voluntary download and purchase model off, over a year before Radiohead eventually popularized the model.

Jets Overhead have toured in Canada, the US, Germany, Ireland, and the UK, including shows with Broken Social Scene, The Temper Trap, The Stills, The Dears, Sam Roberts, Our Lady Peace, The Dandy Warhols, Powderfinger, 54*40, and The Frames. They have performed at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Neil and Pegi Young’s Bridge School Benefit, Sasquatch, SXSW, CMW, CMJ, and NXNE.
