2018 marks 15 years since the formation of Canadian indie rock icons Jets Overhead, and to honor the benchmark the band is releasing a retrospective double album – The Timing: 15 Years of Jets Overhead.
The album will be anchored by a brand new single titled “The Timing,” produced by longtime collaborator Neil Osborne of 54*40, and mixed by JUNO winner Colin Stewart at The Hive Studios on Vancouver Island. “The Timing” is signature Jets Overhead: layered dual harmonies, melodic bass, ambient soundscapes, and timeless drumming. In addition to the new single, the full retrospective album will include a selection of essential catalogue tracks from the band’s four critically-acclaimed studio albums: Jets Overhead (2003), Bridges (2005), No Nations (2009), and Boredom and Joy (2012).
Jets Overhead have performed at major festivals including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch, and Neil Young’s Bridge School Benefit. They have toured throughout the world and shared the stage with artists including Broken Social Scene, Tegan and Sara, Lights, The Temper Trap, The Stills, 54*40, Sam Roberts Band, The Dears, and The Dandy Warhols.
Jets Overhead’s dreamy rock soundscapes have been featured on major network television programs including Bones, House, and Pretty Little Liars, as well as the Clint Eastwood produced motion picture Trouble With The Curve. Their biggest single to date, "Heading For Nowhere," charted nationally at Canadian alternative radio and received regular play in the US on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and Sirius/XM.
Jets Overhead have had the tremendous honor of receiving a JUNO nomination – Canada’s Grammy equivalent – and currently reside and record in Victoria, BC, Canada.
