If Jets Overhead is all you hear these days, you may be living a little to close to the CFB in Comox, or you may have your radio turned to the Zone @ 91.3. The Victoria natives have just released a short album titled, Bystander. Bystander is the follow up disc to Jets Overhead’s second studio record, No Nations.
The band have recently claimed that many of the songs from their new EP are songs that were cut from their 2009 release. The songs, for one reason or the other, ended up being struck for album aesthetics, but are now finding the light on this smaller album format.
Antonia Freybe-Smith, the band’s vocalist, claims that the group needed to release the tracks before they fully threw themselves at new material.
The Band does not have any current plans to play the Victoria area. They will, however, be performing at Venue nightclub on April 2 in Vancouver. Tickets are available at Ticketweb and at a number of independent music stores around Vancouver. The show will start at 7:30 with doors opening at 7:00. Venue has a late-night club scene; as a result, all concerts wrap before 10:00. So arrive early.
