New Philadelphia Grand Jury Single & Headline Tour & They Relocate To the UK

Fresh from the Laneway Festival tour Philadelphia Grand Jury announce a headline tour and new single from last year’s J Award nominated debut, Hope is For Hopers.

The new single ‘I Don’t Want To Party (Party)’ is a live favourite and always creates a crowd spectacle at complete opposites with the title. The single is joined by three exclusive never-heard-before tracks. There is a disco remix of Philadelphia Grand Jury album track ‘Wet Winter Holiday’ by Mike FWD, a solo track by lead singer and producer Berkfinger called ‘Jimmy At The Whorehouse’ which is the first cut off a self-produced solo concept album due out later in the year and in the spirit of this eclectic package the fourth addition to the single is really one for the fans. It’s a hip-hop funk jam called ‘Both Kinds Of Music’ written, sung and produced by the band’s new drummer Calvin. Calvin (yes just Calvin) is a 56 year-old African American drummer who used to session drum for US disco and funk acts like Earth Wind and Fire and bebop legend Sonny Stitt.

You can download the new single ‘I Don’t Want To Party (Party)’ and the remix of ‘Wet Winter Holiday’ by Mike FWD below.

To celebrate the single Philadelphia Grand Jury will be touring throughout April with special guests The John Steele Singers for what will be their final Australian shows for the foreseeable future. The band will then re-locate to the UK where they have a deal with London based Beggar’s label ‘Too Pure’ and a series of club shows leading into the Northern Summer.

The ‘I Don’t Want To Party (Party)’ single package is released to iTunes on March 22nd 2010.
