Chicago rockers The JAB are debuting a new track "Dank Mississippi" off their upcoming LP Consume, which will be released on February 4th via Medicine/The Orchard, a Sony-owned company.
"Dank Mississippi" follows on the heels of the previously released single "Riot".
The Jab frontman Jam Alker was showcasing his punk-blues aesthetic for major labels on the Chicago club circuit just a handful of years ago. With the world at his fingertips, he swapped his guitar for the needle and disappeared for nearly a decade.
In 2014, the birth of his daughter finally flipped the life or death switch and he began treatment. An arduous journey of detox and song-writing therapy laid the foundation for his debut LP, Consume.
Tom Stukel, Terry Byrne, Ryan Herrick, and Alex Piazza—all seasoned, dynamic players —collaborate with Jam on blue-collar thinking-man’s music, delivered with grit and transparency.
The result is the bluesy, post-classic rock, modern sludge rock record Consume. With bite-sized versions of Led Zeppelin’s monstrously thick-grooved riffs, the sensibilities of a Black Keys album, and an often-deep southern melody, Consume is the darkest feel-good record in years.
