Canada’s THE JAILBIRDS release video for ‘Black Madonna’

Grunge and glamour and a southern tinge collide with classic rock roots on The Black River – a record which sounds like it could only have been conceived in a cell by none other than THE JAILBIRDS. Over the course of the last three years, the power trio – consisting of the intricate guitar work and powerful vocals from Myke Penney, the sludgy bass lines of Liam Hills, and the pounding drums of Eric Parent – have performed extensively across Ontario demonstrating, both in the studio and on the stage; they’re a band you simply must hear.
Winners of Best Rock Band at the 2018 Mississauga Music Awards (Canada). The Black River has drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Royal Blood and Alter Bridge, among others. Through the course of only four songs, The Jailbirds established themselves one of the most promising up and coming independent bands Canada has to offer with a sound that is equally rooted in the rock and roll of today as it is in that of the ‘70s and ‘80s.

2019 has proved to be a huge year for the band. Beyond releasing their debut studio EP, The Jailbirds received critical acclaim, including being featured on the esteemed Hamilton/Burlington based radio network, Y108 Rocks! The record and band received a phenomenal response from their dynamic live performance. Having cut their teeth on the road, THE JAILBIRDS spent the majority of the first half of the year touring extensively throughout Ontario and Quebec in support of The Black River, most notably including a set at this year’s Voodoo Rockfest near Kingston, Ontario.

As the band continues to further promote The Black RiverTHE JAILBIRDS have begun working on their follow up EP with the guidance of the label and their experiences on the road, their next batch of songs due in 2020 will be life changers.
