Song of the Day: We Were Promised Jetpacks ~ “A Far Cry”

Posted by cristóvão On March - 18 - 2010

It’s been said before and the more We Were Promised Jetpacks gains notoriety, I’m sure it’ll be said several times more; their name rules!

But there’s more to this band than just an über-cool moniker. The Scottish quartet formed in Edinburgh seven years ago and lately, have been experiencing some much deserved attention. Last year they released their first full-length album, These Four Walls, on Fat Cat Records. The label signed WWPJ after finding them on MySpace as friends of  2008 tour-mates  Frightened Rabbit. They gave their music a listen and now the two are also label-mates.

WWPJ are currently touring the U.S. with Bad Veins and have six scheduled shows at this year’s SXSW showcase in Austin, TX. Their next release, an EP titled the Last Place You’ll Look is available at their shows and will be formally released on April 12th.
