[Watch] The Static Jacks - "Young Guns" (Official Video)

Last year at one of our CMJ parties, New Jerseys Static Jacks tore the place up. With their onstage energy and outright dirty guitars the place was electric. Today they've offered up a brand new track and video to accompany the track titled "Young Guns". It's set to feature on their forthcoming EP Spray Tan which was recorded entirely in a friends converted storage space which adds some interesting sounds to the track with production credits going to Andrew Maury. Peep the video up at the top via CoS as we await more details on what promises to be a great EP.

[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.
