The Jellybricks Release New Single “Mrs. Misery”

Article Contributed by Press Here Publicity | Published on Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Power-pop band The Jellybricks have released their new single “Mrs. Misery,” the latest offering from their forthcoming album Some Kind Of Lucky, due out Friday, October 4th via Wicked Cool Records. “Mrs. Misery” is a full-on assault, bringing to mind the urgency of ‘90s alt-faves like The Lemonheads and Buffalo Tom. PRESS HERE to stream/download the song and PRESS HERE to watch the lyric video. Glide Magazine first premiered the video calling “Mrs. Misery,” “a song with gigantic power-pop precision and electricity.”

“We didn’t want to put out a lyric video that was just text running across the screen to the music, so we set up a camera in my basement, put a dry erase board on the ping-pong table, decorated the ‘set’ with stuff that was lying around, and hit record,” shares Garrick Chow (bass, vocals). “It was all done in one take and took about 25 minutes in real time. Bryce and Tom took turns writing the lyrics, Larry did the little doodles in the corner, and I was on eraser duty. I really like the little mistakes and corrections and spur-of-the-moment decisions that we captured, so we didn't bother with a second take. We ended up with what I hope is a fun and re-watchable visual accompaniment to ‘Mrs. Misery.’”

Some Kind Of Lucky, the band’s seventh studio album, will mark their first for Steven Van Zandt’s red-hot rock label, Wicked Cool Records, and is being released in partnership with The Orchard. The 12-song album, produced by The Jellybricks, features the previously released tracks “Brooklyn,” “DOA,” and lead single “Corner Of My Eye,” all of which have grabbed Coolest Song in the World status on Van Zandt’s Underground Garage radio show this year. Some Kind Of Lucky was recorded at various studios on the east coast, including Van Zandt’s own Renegade Studios in NYC, and was mixed by engineer Geoff Sanoff, whose credits include notable work with Bruce Springsteen, Fountains of Wayne and Dashboard Confessional. PRESS HERE to pre-order Some Kind Of Lucky; see below for full tracklisting.

The Jellybricks will celebrate the release of Some Kind Of Lucky with select live shows along the east coast throughout the remainder of the year, including a New York City show this Saturday, September 14th. See below for list of upcoming dates and visit www.thejellybricks.com

A rock group in the classic two guitars-bass- drums tradition, The Jellybricks (Larry Kennedy [guitar, vocals], Garrick Chow [bass, vocals], Bryce Connor [guitar, vocals], Tom Kristich [drums, vocals]) began as a vehicle for Larry Kennedy’s original songs in the mid-‘90s but has steadily evolved over seven releases into a four-headed collaboration with all four members writing and singing lead. The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-based quartet’s hook-laden songs owe debts of inspiration to decades of melodic rock ‘n’ roll from the ‘60s British invasion through ‘70s punk, ‘80s college rock and ‘90s alternative. Van Zandt began taking notice in recent years, elevating their 2012 track “Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide” to Coolest Song in the World Status. The song was later voted by listeners as “Coolest Song of 2012,” beating out tracks from Aerosmith, Bruce Springsteen, Jack White, and others. In the wake of heavy airplay on SiriusXM and syndicated terrestrial radio over the years, The Jellybricks signed to Wicked Cool at the dawn of 2019. Their mélange of styles is all in keeping with the band’s longtime ethos, as Kennedy explains. “The Jellybricks name was always intended to allow us to be as loud or as aggressive or as dark as we wanted, or to be as soft, as sentimental, or as silly as we wanted to be too. One of our early promotional tag lines was ‘Sweet like Jelly…hits you like a Brick!’”
