The Screaming Jets, released their the eighth full-length album GOTCHA COVERED today!
The album has already achieved a #3 Debut on the iTunes Rock Chart!
GOTCHA COVERED was largely inspired by the band’s favourite radio hits of the last 50+ years, and songs that evoke nostalgic reference to the past. The Screaming Jets salute an eclectic collection of Aussie artists with their own trademark interpretation of songs from The Easybeats, Men At Work, Paul Kelly, The Angels, You Am I, Hoodoo Gurus, INXS and AC/DC, just to name a few.
Produced by longtime collaborator Steve James (All For One, Living in England EP, Tear of Thought, World Gone Crazy and the band’s most recent release from 2016, Chrome), the selection of tracks were recorded raw and live at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne earlier in the year. What came out of the studio was a collection of 15 iconic Aussie songs spanning the mid 1960’s to late 1990’s, paying homage to a cross-section of Australian music history.
Singer and front man Dave Gleeson muses, “What we came up with was a great Aussie party album. Covering songs that have shaped us; songs from our youth; songs that have been written and performed by contemporaries and songs that will make even the most loyal fan go “what the” … I can’t wait to get out with the boys and belt these songs out with the rest of Australia…”
