We Were Promised Jetpacks

The bands sophomore release followed in 2011 and was recorded at Sigur Ros’s Sundlaugin Studios in Iceland. “In the Pit of the Stomach” was testament to the poise, control and vigor the band had learned to command. The extensive touring schedule continued and the release received support and high praise from the likes of Rolling Stone and Spin Magazine. The band also continued to build on their high profile live performances with sets at Coachella, Fashions Big Night Out at New York’s Rockerfeller Centre and on Last Call with Carson Daly

During the 2012 US Tour the band recorded and captured footage from their live set at Union Transfer, Philadelphia. Early 2014 saw the release of “E Rey: Live in Philadelphia”, in ode to Esteban Rey the bands’ friend and then tour manager. The album captures the explosive energy and drama fans have come to expect from a We Were Promised Jetpacks show, with behind the scenes footage allowing fans a unique insight to life on the road with the band.

Early 2014 saw the band working tirelessly on “UNRAVELLING” which will be the bands most confident and accomplished record to date. Recorded in Glasgow at the infamous Chem19 Studios with Paul Savage who has previously worked with numerous established and diverse Scottish acts such as Teenage Fanclub, King Creosote, The Twilight Sad, Franz Ferdinand and Mogwai.
