Australian quartet The Jezabels are excited to announce a North American tour for Fall 2016! The shows will support the release of the newest album Synthia, released independently this past February via Metropolitan Groove Merchants Distribution. Plans to promote the record with an extensive tour were previously put on hold due to keyboardist Heather Shannon's ovarian cancer relapse.  But cue to half a year later, she's in remission and the band is ready to make up for lost time.

'We are so thrilled to be announcing this new tour after the heartbreak of cancelling our tour earlier this year. Heather is feeling strong again after her treatment and we are all impassioned and eager to finally give SYNTHIA the tour she deserves.

We were so touched by the outpouring of support toward us over the course of this year, we cannot think of any better way to show our gratitude than bringing SYNTHIA out on the road. We cannot wait to introduce her to you all, to see your beautiful faces and to celebrate the end of this unique and challenging year.

It's going to be smashing!'

The tour begins November 9th at Los Angeles venue The Echo and will take the band across North America, with stops at SF's The Independent, Toronto's Lee's Palace, Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg and more iconic venues. See all tour dates below.

To celebrate the band's return, they have shared a new video for their single "Smile" off of the new album. 

"'SMILE' IS LATENTLY FEROCIOUS, WAITING UNTIL JUST THE RIGHT MOMENT TO BITE WITH SWIRLING GUITARS AND CRASHING PERCUSSION OPERATING UNDER LEAD SINGER HAYLEY MARY'S MISANTHROPIC HOWL." -- POPMATTERS

SYNTHIA isthe third album from the acclaimed Australian band and was recorded in Sydney with producer/engineer Lachlan Mitchell.  The critically acclaimed album was called by Rolling Stone "...a strong return to form. It's a dark, even menacing, record at times." Since the release of their breakout debut, Prisoner (2011), The Jezabels' Sam Lockwood (guitar), Nik Kaloper (drums), Hayley Mary (vocals), and Heather Shannon (keys), continue to earn widespread praise for their "anthemic sound" (Relix). Their follow-up album, The Brink (2014), caught the attention of Rolling Stone, Esquire, Elle Magazine and more, for a sound that Noisey called, "a bold cut of emotive, epic-pop, hinged on Hayley's sky-scaling Stevie Nicks-ian melodies."
