September 18th, 2015 – Burbank, CA – Detroit band JR JR have debuted new track ‘In The Middle’ on The Daily Beast, who label it “up-tempo, atmospheric, and with the sort of lyrics that you can sing along to and feel as much or as little as you want while the rest of your body is dancing its face off.” Taken from their forthcoming third album, JR JR, out September 25th via Warner Bros. Records [pre-order HERE], the band also performed their single ‘Gone‘ live for the first time on CONAN this week.
The “surreal” music video for ‘Gone‘ was featured on NPR ‘First Watch,’ who call it “a bold statement that from now on, things are going to look different.” The track, which is featured in the previews for Australian series Please Like Me, and was recently in an episode of I Am Cait, follows “As Time Goes,” called an “introspective pop gem” by NPR All Songs Considered, as well as mid 2014’s ‘James Dean.’
Under their original moniker Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., Josh Epstein and Daniel Zott built a rather rich history, eventually setting the stage for JR JR. Their indefinable and inimitable charm continually proves magnetic, from getting signed by a Warner Bros. A&R exec who jumped on stage at CMJ, to snagging their own ice cream flavor back in Michigan, JR JR Mint, and even being invited to practice by the Milwaukee Bucks.
JR JR will head out on a series of fall headlining tour dates with Hippo Campus and Brothertiger in support of the album. Please see below for all upcoming tour dates.
