Rising melodic hard rockers Gin Annie today release their storming, brand-new, single, ‘Jealousy’ worldwide, to coincide with their new 11-date headline tour: Gin Annie – The Next Chapter UK Tour.
Gin Annie are a Black Country-based, five-piece powerhouse hard rock band: David Foster (vocals); Byron ‘Beej’ Garbett (guitars); Brian Green (guitars); Phill ‘Hammer’ Burrows (bass); and Lewis ‘The Kid’ Turner (drums).
Carving out an enviable reputation as rising stars of the UK’s vibrant emerging rock scene, Gin Annie are helping maintain British Hard Rock at its finest, complete with swagger, much-admired showmanship, and a dedication to their own distinct brand of energetic and melodic hard rock.
‘Jealousy’ is Gin Annie’s 6th single since the release of their 2019 debut album ‘100% Proof’ and will be the last single before the band heads into the studio to record their eagerly awaited second album.
“This song is HUGE!” say the band, “We can’t wait for you to hear it!”
“There has been an almost unquenchable demand for new music from us since 100% Proof was released,” they explain, “and all previous 5 singles have made the Top 3 in the Amazon UK Rock Charts, but this will be the last one until our second album that’s due out next year.”
Of the song itself, Gin Annie say, “’Jealousy’ hits hard musically and also in its subject matter. Jealousy is something everybody has to deal with and in our opinion it’s the most toxic substance on the planet. We wanted to make the song an anthem for people about rising above it, whether that’s from a relationship point of view or just general life.
“We are a pretty flamboyant band in both how we look and how we act. 9 times out of 10, any negative energy directed at us (which thankfully is actually quite rare) all boils down to jealousy, and don’t even get us started on holding down a relationship while being in a touring rock band! Ha Ha!”
In terms of recording the new single, Gin Annie explain that “Through our management — Martin Jarvis at 1266 Music Group — we were invited to use Morse Code Studios in Glasgow by Paul McManus of Gun. It’s one hell of an amazing studio and we feel that the team there really captured the soul of Gin Annie.
“Due to COVID restrictions,” they add, “the track was actually produced remotely by Nick Brine (Oasis, The Darkness, Seasick Steve, Bruce Springsteen, KT Tunstall, Arctic Monkeys) and mastered by Pete Maher (U2, The Rolling Stones, The Pixies). Nick nailed it in the very first mix and brought out the very best in us without a doubt and the mastering was really the icing on the cake.”
“We will be playing ‘Jealousy’ live for the first time during our 11-date UK Tour that starts right now (23rd September). It marks the beginning of the next chapter for us. After a full album and 6 independent singles, we really haven’t taken our foot off the gas, even during lockdown, and we have zero intention of ever doing so. We have also released our first Live Album and DVD after a hugely successful live stream during the height of lockdown.”
‘Jealousy’ is released today on all digital platforms on the Off Yer Rocka label: the latest single from this consistently exciting band, with a big sound and showmanship to match.
