‘Watery Grave’ is the latest single from The Jailbirds, (the first to be lifted from their forthcoming EP), out now through Golden Robot Records. Showing the band in fine form, with chunky and earthy riffs, 70’s classic rock sense, scintillating vocals and a power laden rhythm section. ‘Watery Grave’ will more than pique the interest in fans of Corrosion of Conformity, Black Label Society, Alter Bridge and Soundgarden.
Over the course of the last three years, the power trio – consisting of the intricate guitar work and powerful vocals from Myke Penney, the sludgy bass lines of Liam Hills, and the pounding drums of Eric Parent – have performed extensively across Ontario demonstrating, both in the studio and on the stage; they’re a band you simply must hear.
Winners of Best Rock Band at the 2018 Mississauga Music Awards (Canada), THE JAILBIRDS and The Black River have drawn comparisons to the likes of Black Sabbath, Soundgarden, Royal Blood and Alter Bridge, among others.
THE JAILBIRDS have established themselves one of the most promising up and coming independent bands Canada has to offer with a sound that is equally rooted in the rock and roll of today as it is in that of the ‘70s and ‘80s.
2019 has proved to be a huge year for the band. Beyond releasing their debut studio EP The Black River THE JAILBIRDS have received strong critical acclaim, including being featured on the esteemed Hamilton/Burlington based radio network, Y108 Rocks! The record and band have received a phenomenal response from their dynamic live performance. Having cut their teeth on the road, THE JAILBIRDS have spent a majority of the first half of 2019 touring extensively throughout Ontario and Quebec in support of The Black River, most notably including a set at last year’s Voodoo Rockfest near Kingston, Ontario. The band also churned out two video clips for the cuts ‘Black Madonna’ and ‘The Black River’.

Running is the third single from the upcoming album and follows on from
Taking My Chances & Scars
Check it out here smith-kotzen.lnk.to/albumPR
Adrian says of the song, “It’s a really cool sort of driving track, one of the heavier ones on the album and we’re excited to get it out there ahead of the album release. We’ve both been thrilled by the reaction to our music so far and are very much looking forward to meeting up again as soon as we can, to write some more songs together.”
Richie adds, “Running was the first song Adrian and I worked on. Adrian came in with that heavy verse riff which lead me to conjuring up what lives as our chorus to the composition. Running is surely one of my top three favourites on the Smith/Kotzen album and I really look forward to playing this one live”.
As well as the duo co-writing, co-producing and sharing guitars and vocals, Richie also plays bass and drums on the track.
With the two previous singles Taking My Chances and cars having been enthusiastically welcomed by fans and media alike, Running is the perfect final choice ahead of the eponymous album release on March 26 to showcase the astonishing breadth of talent and musical diversity between this unique pairing of two of rock’s most respected artists.

We spent a lot of time on small details, which really completes the song, in my opinion!!”
