Jake and the jellyfish are a four piece hailing straight outta Leeds. Armed with foot stomping folk tunes, “sing your heart out” punk anthems and a hint of ska, they’ve toured extensively in a beat up old post office van bringing an energetic atmosphere and drunken sing alongs to venues across the UK and Mainland Europe. Playing festivals like Rebellion, Kendal Calling and Beat-herder and sharing stages with bands such as The Skints, Random Hand and Beans on Toast they’ve definitely carved their own foothold in the DIY music scene.
The past four years have brought some exciting things for the Jellyfish and 2015 is no different. This year the band has an invitation to Florida’s biggest punk event, FEST 14, and sees the release of their new album ‘Dead Weight’ which has been given a 9/10 by Leeds music scene and a real life jellyfish expert said “it’s a good album.”
