Christmas Island is coming May 6 on SideOneDummy!


Hey Gang!

Big News! We are proud to announce that we have signed with SideOneDummy Records, and that they will be releasing our new album, Christmas Island, on May 6th, 2014. You can preorder it here: http://www.onchristmasisland.com.

As some of you may know, we made the record with John Congleton in June of last year. We believe that it is our best work so far. The Christmas Island players are Sean, Ben, Preston, Deacon and Mark as well as Dylan Cook on mandolin with guest vocals by Jamie Stewart (of Xiu Xiu).

We commissioned the wonderful Suzanne Falk to make the album cover, a photorealistic painting of a diorama she and Sean made together. The title of the painting is: “Everything we were ever looking for was there all along”.

This album represents a special kind of growth for us. A growth fertilized by the joy of collaboration and a revitalized appreciation of art and process. We are very excited to share it with you, thank you for your patience :-)

Vanpaign 2014!

jammed astroweb

Hey Gang! Just wanted to say thank you again for helping us buy a new tour van. We can’t wait to meet her! We love you guys so much and we’re extremely grateful for your overwhelming support.

For those of you who contributed, we will be in touch shortly. Thanks in advance for your patience. We are already getting everything lined up to fulfill these perks but there is a ton of work yet to be done!

For the rest of you, we will be seeing you soon. Lot’s of fun and touring coming up! Also, although we have made our goal, this will be the last chance for you to grab any of the items we have for perks. Most of this stuff is exclusive so get them while they’re tepid!

Love and Respect,

¡¡¡AJJ’s Exciting Crowdfunding Venture!!!

AJJ promo-155

Hi Gang!

We have a very exciting year planned. New record is coming soon, tours will be announced shortly, and we are trying to buy a new, amazing van. If you would like to help us purchase a Dodge Sprinter, we have set up an IndieGoGo campaign with some backer rewards suggested by listeners like you.

We intend for this to be a unique exchange. We don’t expect you to give us money for nothing, and we will still tour if this doesn’t work, but this van will make our tours incredibly comfortable.

Have you ever wanted to get into our shows for life? Do you feel like having Sean play your birthday party? Need a new keychain?  Inquire within.

CINCYPUNKFEST, The Fest, November Tour with The Gunshy and other such updates

Fantastic artwork by Ben Sears

Hi Gang!

We hope you have been enjoying a nice transition into Autumn.

This month we are playing two great festivals!

The first is this friday in Cincinnati at CINCYPUNKFEST, we will be playing with lots of wonderful bands. You can get tickets for that HERE

The second fest is confidently named The Fest 12, and we will be playing the Ybor City Pre-Fest as well. Tickets for both can be found HERE

It is also our pleasure to announce that this November we are playing some shows in Nevada, California and Arizona. AJJ will be a two-piece for these shows, a format that our road dog Spider Glick calls “Andrew Jackson Jihad Classic™. It’s going to be very fun. There’s a Facebook event for it, if you’re into that sort of thing.

The Gunshy will be joining us on all the November shows. Speaking of The Gunshy, Matt just made a great new album and Sean played a bunch of stuff on it. Listen to it HERE.

Speaking of albums, our new album is mixed and mastered! We are now getting the artwork together and finding it a good home. Get ready though, it’s gonna break your brain, melt your face, AND knock your socks off.

Once this album is released we will tour a whole bunch. It’s gonna be bonkers.

Thanks for reading!
