Jesu: Lifeline EP & World Tour

"Dripping heavy, cascading walls of sound, U.K. shoegazing trio Jesu -- helmed by Justin Broadrick, with Diarmuid Dalton and Ted Parsons in tow -- churn out static-edged mini-epics." –SPINM

"Broadrick's music comes over the stereo like its own weather pattern, an experience with more layers and detail than even 10 or 20 listens can trace out." –PITCHFORK

The world's leading expert on distorting the living s**t out of an electric guitar. Heavier and more screwed-up than depleted uranium. Winner. –THE BBC

Alright, it's official: Jesu conquered 2007. I know the year ain't over; we can just tell. Critically lauded second full length selling like hot cakes? Yes. A massively successful spring tour of the U.S. with ISIS and Zozobra? Yes. And wait, three more EPs since?!? Yes. Lifeline is the third, and it contains four of Jesu's most refined tracks of shoegazed metallic abandon, one of which features Swans diva of doom, Jarboe. Jesu's records are so consistently dope that fans will know what to expect with Lifeline: serene ambient beauty, heavy bombast, and that totally signature melancholy and optimism that courses through each release. Of course, if you've been paying any attention then you also know that no Jesu release treads old ground – it always sounds fresh - something Senor Broadrick can't help but do, I guess, since he also founded Godflesh, Napalm Death, Techno Animal, etc. ad infinitum!

This EP will mark Jesu's return to our shores for their first headlining tour of the U.S. Expect that triumphant return to also feature a variety of great bands including other HH artists that Justin is hand-picking to provide support.

Lifeline Track List:
1. Lifeline [5.17]
2. You Wear Their Masks [6.18]
