Ahead of the release of their second EP on Friday via free digital download, London based post-hardcore act Jack The Envious have released a new lyric video. ‘Mrs Grim’ marks a transition towards a new phase for the band, as they prepare to unleash ‘In Your Own Way‘ on the world.

Formed in 2012 by Nir Perlman (Vocals), and Guy Avnon (Guitar), Jack The Envious were later joined by Guy Checkarov (Bass) during their military service. Between 2011 and 2014, Jack The Envious focused mainly on perfecting their live show and writing songs, struggling to mix both national service and band life together.

After releasing their debut EP, ‘Pull You Down’, last year the band had very successful local shows while maintaining new content releases. Aiming to branch out, they left everything behind and moved to the UK on January 2017. ‘Mrs Grim’ is the third single from the EP, and is the follow-up to ‘Begging For More’ and ‘Guilty’, both released earlier this year.

With new material eager to be heard, Jack The Envious can’t wait to get out playing more shows, having recently blown away the crowd at the Black Heart in Camden, the band are hoping to replicate that successful show everytime they play.

Want to know more about ‘Mrs Grim’, Jack The Envious comment:

Sometimes in our writing, we get a certain emotions that we feel are more suitable to be transferred as fictional stories. The emotion is real, but we feel it’s an amazing experience to sometime exaggerate them a little and make them more of a theatrical story. Its like a “based on a real story” movie kind of thing. We’re not afraid to say most of it is fictional but we feel the rest should definitely speak for itself.

Jack The Envious are preparing to release their second EP ‘In Your Own Way’, via free digital download this Friday. On the EP, the band have this to say:

We’ve got so many songs in our arsenal at the moment, it’s been crazy to choose only five songs, but we wanted to keep it simple. Bands change all the time, a little here, a little there. With that being said, we wanted to capture it yet give the listeners who already know us that familiar JTE vibe. The songs are, in a way, very different from each other, but at the same time contain the guidelines of a JTE song.
We never settled on one style of writing, and every time it’s a different journey but with the same friends.”

Praise for Jack The Envious

“Jack The Envious is here to rattle your bones and transform your playlists with a song thatíll stick in your head all weekend long
iDobi Howl

“The songs are powered through the choruses and verses by melodic alt rock vocals that are strongly reminiscent of PANIC! AT THE DISCO, making this [album] as much of a guilty pleasure as they are.
The keyboards also bring something new and epic to the genre, symphonic breakdowns, it ís breathtaking to hear it for the first time.”

SHADEYSWORLD

What happens when you take a good olí lump of post-hardcore, fold in a dash of punk, as well as a pinch of Tim Burton-esque alternative elements, and toss them in a musical blender?
The result is a quizzical concoction that mostly fits the description of the interesting and intriguing sound of Jack the Envious.
Completely independent and a relatively fresh face on the scene, Jack the Envious already shows promise and originality.”

New-Transcendence

There is something rude and anarchic in the songs of JACK THE ENVIOUS,
something freshy and young that at times reminds me of rebellious strident (but in a good way …) of bands like LINKIN PARK or PIERCE THE VEIL.
when I listen to songs like ‘Omens’ or ‘All Expectations Gone’, I could not help but remember the lust for destruction and will scream and rave when I first heard the song ‘Do What I Say’ of CLAWFINGER no less.”

Metalist Magazine

“There’s a confidence that runs throughout this [EP] that normally comes with years of experience and touring.
There’s an almost effortless feel to the delivery of both the vocals and the instrumentation.”
