The Jailbirds


“I Will Move On is the last song on the upcoming concept EP, and the final chapter of the story. It again follows the same character, rising up above the negativity in their life and gaining the confidence to keep on going. This song is one of the heaviest on the record, bringing the sound back to that of our debut EP, The Black River. It is very modern hard rock, this time with a very imperial feeling to it. 

Loud and aggressive guitar tones, soft and crisp acoustic and clean guitars, with powerful thrashing drums, eerie vocals and chilling harmonies are all mixed into one with this track. The verse takes you to what seems like a whole other dimension, a side of The Jailbirds we haven’t heard before. Acoustic guitar and Leslie speaker guitars duel side by side, with screaming leads echoing overtop. 

We then are catapulted into the chorus with a dramatic drum roll, and saturated guitars sliding into the main riff. The dynamics really open up, and the band is playing at full force. The vocals are more forward in this section and the character is finding the way. The explosion of energy and strength in the chorus is a portrayal of the new found confidence our character is discovering.”

ABOUT THE JAILBIRDS
Over the course of the last three years, the power trio – consisting of the intricate guitar work and powerful vocals from Myke Penney, the sludgy bass lines of Liam Hills, and the pounding drums of Eric Parent – have performed extensively across Ontario demonstrating, both in the studio and on the stage; they’re a band you simply must hear.Winners of Best Rock Band at the 2018 Mississauga Music Awards (Canada), THE JAILBIRDS and The Black River have drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Royal Blood and Alter Bridge, among others.
THE JAILBIRDS have established themselves one of the most promising up and coming independent bands Canada has to offer with a sound that is equally rooted in the rock and roll of today as it is in that of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
2019 has proved to be a huge year for the band. Beyond releasing their debut studio EP The Black River THE JAILBIRDS have received strong critical acclaim, including being featured on the esteemed Hamilton/Burlington based radio network, Y108 Rocks! The record and band have received a phenomenal response from their dynamic live performance.
Having cut their teeth on the road, THE JAILBIRDS have spent a majority of the first half of 2019 touring extensively throughout Ontario and Quebec in support of The Black River, most notably including a set at last year’s Voodoo Rockfest near Kingston, Ontario. The band also churned out two video clips for the cuts ‘Black Madonna’ and ‘The Black River’.
