From the ashes of two of the finest
Seattle, nay, American, heck bands from the-planet- ever, Matador is very pleased to confirm the signing of JAGUAR LOVE to a long-term, worldwide deal.
Consisting of Johnny Whitney (vocals, piano) and Cody Votolato (guitar, bass) — both formerly of the Blood Brothers — and our dear friend J Clark (drums, bass, keyboards, formerly the guitar wiz in the recently split Pretty Girls Make Graves), Jaguar Love bear some stylistic similarities to the trio’s old outfits but based on early live evidence, something totally new & ferocious is in the works. We’re never quite sure where the art/punk/pop divide lies in 2008, but from what we’ve seen from Jaguar Love (both on their own and supporting Queens Of The Stoneage), we’re also not sure it really matters that much, either.
The band are currently finishing their debut album at Seattle’s Two Sticks Audio with J producing and engineering. Much like everything else in life, the LP/CD’s release date is to be determined but early Summer 2008 is certainly a possibility.
Jaguar Love will touring the globe this Summer and Autumn.
