Hard working Irish rock n' rollers JEKYL have recently arrived in the USA to put their unique stamp on California's rock scene. The bands explosive live shows captivated audiences throughout Ireland and the UK and their high energy blend of rock and metal have amassed a fan base of all ages.
With a work ethic unsurpassed by any Irish act in the Summer of 2008 JEKYL played three 3 festivals in one day, and manged to squeeze in winning a battle of the bands the day before at Irish Bikers "The Druids" yearly gathering.
Having won numerous awards throughout Ireland, and gained a number two slot on Ireland's independent download charts, the band were inspired to pack their bags and head the six and half thousand miles to L.A. in a fortune favors the bold maneuver to seek all the best America has to offer.
Unsigned the Magazine recently descibed Jekyl as "Combining all the best elements of vintage British Hard Rock and displaying absolutely none of Metal's cheesy preening and posing, Jekyl hits like a fist to the face. Iron Maiden fans in particular will find a lot to love in Jekyl's new 4-song EP."
With anticipation already growing around L.A. as to what these Irish lads are capable of hopes are high that they are bringing something very special to California - something to write home about.
Where can we hear the band? Do you have a website?
