[CMJ 2011 x Interview] The Static Jacks
Indie rock band The Static Jacks have gone from being the little known New Jersey-based band Waterdown Clockwise to touring alongside Tokyo Police Club, White Denim, Biffy Clyro and Titus Andronicus. Since changing their name, the band was named Breakthrough Artist of the Day by NME on July 23, 2010, and this year, the New Jersey rockers were signed to Fearless Records. Since then, they've released their debut album If You're Young, and are currently on a U.S. tour supporting The Wombats. The band was also one of six bands to perform at SKoA and The Audio Perv's very own CMJ day party.
During this years CMJ Music Marathon, I had the opportunity of interviewing the band's lead singer Ian Devaney over the phone. We discussed everything from the formation of the band, touring, and much more. You can listen to the interview in its entirety below.
