Jake and the Jellyfish

Leeds, UK punk/folk/reggae 4 piece Jake and The Jellyfish have just released a new LP titled ‘Dead Weight.’ You can stream the album here.

‘Dead Weight’ was recorded by Kurt ‘The Hair’ Wood at Jam on Top Studios and produced by Kurt Wood and Jake & The Jellyfish.

Check out their latest music video for the track “23” here.

Armed with foot-stomping folk tunes, “sing your heart out” punk anthems and a hint of ska, Jake and the Jellyfish have toured extensively in a beat up old post office van bringing an energetic atmosphere and drunken sing-a-longs to venues across the UK and Mainland Europe.

Playing festivals like Rebellion, Kendal Calling and Beat-herder and sharing stages with bands such as The Skints, Random Hand and Beans on Toast they’ve definitely carved their own foothold in the DIY music scene.

The past four years have brought some exciting things for the Jellyfish and 2015 is no different. This fall, the band will travel to the U.S. for their first appearance at Florida’s biggest punk event, The Fest 14.
