Jukebox the Ghost Announces New Album 'Off To The Races'
Brooklyn's vibrant piano-pop trio Jukebox the Ghost - Ben Thronewill (piano, vocals), Jesse Kristin (percussion, vocals), and Tommy Siegel (guitar, bass, vocals) - announces their highly anticipated new full-length album Off To The Races, due out March 30, 2018 via Jukebox the Ghost/Caroline! Preorders are available HERE and all digital preorders come with an instant download of new single, "Everybody's Lonely" - out now! Stream the track on your preferred streaming service or via Consequence of Sound, who call the track "instantly among the group's finest" and chat with Thornewill on the song's origins.
On Off To The Races, the band's formidable tag-team of songwriters is at their sharpest. On songs like album opener "Jumpstarted" and single "Everybody's Lonely," Thornewill's keen pop sensibilities pair with his Freddie Mercury-esque vocal prowess, while Siegel's guitar-forward punk rock tendencies shine on songs like "Boring" and "People GoHome," all threaded together by Kristin's versatile drumming. In just 10 songs, Off To The Races promises a little something to love for everyone who listens.
Off To The Races is the follow up to the band's 2014 LP Jukebox the Ghost. The self-titled fourth full-length earned the band its first radio success with "The Great Unknown," which they performed on CONAN and cracked Top 40 at AAA after the album hit #1 on Billboard's Alternative New Artist Chart. In addition, Jukebox the Ghostwas met with widespread critical acclaim including coverage from Esquire, Spin, Nylon, The Wall Street Journal, AV Club, Nerdist, and much more. Since Jukebox the Ghost's release, the band has entertained at Madison Square Garden during halftime at a New York Knicks game, released their first ever live album (2016), and started a new and quickly beloved tradition with HalloQueen - which sees the band performing a full set of Queen covers in full costume each October in several cities around the US.
Jukebox the Ghost formed while studying at George Washington University before moving to Philadelphia and eventually settling in Brooklyn, where they have called home for several years. Central to their artistic DNA, Jukebox the Ghost has spent a decade touring non-stop and playing shows with everyone from Ingrid Michaelson to Kanye West, building up an intensely loyal fanbase across the globe.
After recently selling out shows previewing new tracks at Brooklyn's Knitting Factoryand LA's The Echo, the band is excited to bring Off To The Races on the road this year, with much more touring news on the horizon and an appearance at this year's BottleRockFestival already announced!
Off To The Races is out March 30th, 2018, and single "Everybody's Lonely" is set to impact Alternative and AAA airwaves next month! The band recently played. For the most up to date information, please visit www.jukeboxtheghost.com.
