Introducing Jack Butler

 

Jack Butler

The band recorded their debut album ‘Fit the Paradigm’ at Glasgow's La Chunky studios, and mixed/mastered the record with Mark Freegard (Manic Street Preachers ‘The Holy Bible’, Del Amitri etc). It was critically acclaimed upon its release earning Album of the Month on BBC Introducing and earning rave reviews with critics calling it “on the border of a classic” (Manchester Music News), “simply fabulous” (News of the World), and “the bastard child of Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Foals...irresistibly funky and danceable” (The List). 

Jack Butler's reputation as a fresh, exciting live act continues to grow, they have played at T in the Park, Rock Ness, Connect Festival, Belladrum Festival, and secured support slots with the likes of The Wombats, Florence and the Machine, You Say Party! We Say Die!, The Noisettes, Glasvegas, Hot Club de Paris and Twin Atlantic amongst many other acts.

Demonstrating a dynamism and refreshing quality that has been lost amongst the plethora of new music over recent times, Jack Butler’s inspirational sounds are ground breaking in nature, feeling almost experimental in form and ticking all the boxes with everything from synthesised siren quality rhythm guitars to charged Talking Heads-like vocals. After taking a hiatus in 2010-11, the band are now working hard on writing their second LP and look forward to showcasing new material at upcoming gigs this Summer.
