About damn time! My brother was asking what happened to these guys. Now I can tell him.

The EP is great as I recall, probably around 80% but I won't get my hopes high, last year or two DE LA CRUZ released a full album which is not as good as their EP

Well, it appears they lost their drummer, which was honestly what gave them an edge. He made them stand out.

Do I even care enough to press play? This band had so much promise.

After the singles releases post Jacks out the box, I kinda gave up on them (just like they gave up on the material from that EP, even removing the videos for Falling and Relive the ride from youtube).

I bit the bullet last year and preordered their debuts album, but after weeks of posting pictures of it in shops etc and still not having received my copy (kept getting told "sorry, we are waiting for more stock"), I cancelled my order.

 

Finally plumped down some cash on a copy as I saw it cheap, and its fucking horrible. Not even remotely the same band that recorded that classic sounding EP. I have nothing against modern rock, and like a lot of bands in this sort of style, but when I know what these guys were capable of, I cannot get into this. All that was left from the original EP is the singer and bassist, which probably explains a lot.

As it stands though, the band announced last week that they are going on a hiatus (which is basically a polite way of saying breaking up).

5 years ago that would have saddened me, but now I could not care less. The band obviously did not give a shit about its fans. The preorder they dicked me around on was supposed to be the only way to get a signed copy (which I obviously never received), yet they are selling signed copies on their website. The change is style and total disregard for their early songs is also another sign of this.

I was just thinking about these guys the other day. Such a sad story. I wonder what the drummer is up to. He was the most talented in the band.

Well the drummer on this is not the same as on the Jacks EP.

I think the singer and bassist are the only members to carry over to this album.

 

That's what I mean. I wonder where he went.

more than likely either just went back to a day job or playing in some other little known band to be honest

Probably. It just annoys me when such young talent slips away so quietly. Like the old lead singer of Arion.

    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun.

    • Another greatest hits album! And even worse, live greatest hits: JACKYL : 30 Coming In Hot +3 New Tracks (2022) BY BANNED WEBSITE · PUBLISHED AUGUST 13, 2022   When many classic hard rock-related acts from their generation succumbed to trends, JACKYL has been strong & healthy for more than 3 decades. Now 2022 JACKYL are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their platinum debut album with the release of a new best-of collection titled ”30 Coming In Hot”. There has been a ‘best of’ from the band some years ago but this one is different: ”30 Coming In Hot” includes their best songs this time performed live, where they truly showcase their power, plus 3 brand new studio tracks. JACKYL earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation “The Hardest Working Band in Rock ‘N’ Roll” for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Yeah, JACKYL born to play live, and ”30 Coming In Hot” is really ‘hot’ indeed. Very well recorded, mixed & produced, the set is very, very good and entertaining, and you have 3 new songs to enjoy as well. Highly Recommended   01 – Another Round (New Studio Track) 02 – Get All Up in It (New Studio Track) 03 – Bad Decision (New Studio Track) 04 – Blastoff (Live) 05 – My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine’s Ass (Live) 06 – Encore (Live) 07 – Screwdriver (Live) 08 – Down On Me (Live) 09 – Push Comes to Shove (Live) 10 – Just Because I’m Drunk (Don’t Mean You’re Right) (Live) 11 – Secret of the Bottle (Live) 12 – I Stand Alone (Live) 13 – When Will it Rain (Live) 14 – Dirty Little Mind (Live) 15 – Redneck Punk (Live) 16 – Cut the Crap (Live) 17 – The Lumberjack (Live) Jesse James Dupree – Vocals, Guitar Jeff Worley – Guitar Chris Worley – Drums, Percussion Roman Glick – Bass   BUY www.amazon.com/Jackyl-30-Coming-Hot/dp/B0B5N9T45Y
    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
    • There’s bound to be an ADV fan somewhere 😂
