In a celebration of one of Melbourne’s most iconic music venues, Jungle have today announced their most intimate Victorian show to date at St Kilda’s recently restored Hotel Esplanade, AKA The Espy.

It’s been a long time coming for Jungle fan’s who have not seen the British outfit grace Australian shores since they hit up Splendour in the Grass way back in 2014.

The eagerly anticipated Antipodean tour was announced in the wake of the follow up to their self titled Mercury Prize nominated debut record, which featured binge worthy tracks such as Busy Earnin’ and The Heat.

Titled For Ever the new album describes the band’s Californian Dream and the reality check of actually living it – the feeling of being adrift on the West Coast compounded by the collapse of long-term relationships.

The silver lining for Josh “J” Lloyd-Watson and Tom “T” McFarland (the duo who dreamt up Jungle’s inimitable sound) is what they lost in love, they gained in music with future hits House In LA and Happy Man.
