Jester to Release Debut Album on Velvet Moron Records

2018 has been a busy year for hard working Thurles band Jester which saw them sign a deal with Independent UK record label Velvet Moron Records, the brainchild of David White (Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, ELO, Biffy Clyro and Kasabian).

On the live front Jester performed at Electric Picnic 2018, Féile Classical 2018, headlined a number of shows themselves throughout Ireland and supported acts including The Stunning and Britpop legends Cast.

Velvet Moron Records will release Jester’s debut album ‘Shadows Need a Light’ on March 15th 2019. The album will feature tracks including ‘Sea Saw’ (Today FM Home-grown Hero track), ‘Little Run Down’ which also had its radio debut on Lost in Music with Ed Smith on Today FM and the hooky new release ‘In The Meantime’ which has all the right ingredients for it to eclipse anything the band have done to date.

Since joining forces with Velvet Moron Records the hard work has been bearing fruit with many UK Radio stations taking notice of the track ‘Little Run Down’.

The album launch will be supported by a tour in prestigious venues including;

Whelan’s Dublin 15th March
The Source Thurles 16th March
De Barra’s Clonakilty 22rd March
Crane Lane Theatre Cork 24th March

If its big choruses, a wall of sound combined with lyrics that actually mean something you’re after then Jester are the band for you….
