JACK THE STRIPPER
Premiere New Video For Nibiru via Metal Hammer
Europe & Japan Tour dates Added To Schedule
Melbourne’s metal powerhouse Jack The Stripper have released their brand new video Nibiru, taken from their debut album Raw Nerve (2013).
While the lyrics address subjects of abandonment and feelings of hopelessness in Nibiru, the music transmits an unnerving, nightmarish atmosphere which the band felt needed to be appropriately conveyed. The end product is this video, providing both long-time and new listeners with a complete spectrum of all the elements that make up the foundation of this song. Night terrors, the unknown, plenty of spit and bitterness – this is Nibiru.
Frontman Luke Frizon declared – “With so many different platforms shared by media and your peers telling you how to feel, how to think, how to view yourself every day – it’s a given that disillusionment and dissociation will strike a lot of people, and cause suffering. Nibiru is for those people and seeks to illustrate the sense of loss, separation, and worthlessness that they feel.”
Jack The Stripper’s ‘Nibiru Tour’ will take in headline dates across Australia (kicking off this month), before the band embarks on their inaugural European tour which includes shows with Parkway Drive and a string of festival appearances, such as Brutal Assault (Czech Republic) and Rockstadt (Romania). The tour will conclude with the group’s second visit of Japan.
Jack The Stripper have been assaulting audiences everywhere with their fierce and innovative brand of chaotic hardcore, a relentless work ethic and an atypical, ferocious on-stage prowess.
Their debut album Raw Nerve is a sonic powerhouse of off-kilter rhythms, punishing vocals and extremity. Following it’s release, the band toured Australia and Asia extensively, supporting international heavyweights such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Fear Factory, Cancer Bats, King Parrot, Northlane, Ne Obliviscaris, iwrestledabearonce, Black Tongue, Carnifex, Rolo Tomassi, and many more.
The Nibiru tour will see out Raw Nerve’s album cycle and the band are currently hard at work finalising their second album, which is due to be released in the not too distant future.
Jack The Stripper’s live show is a boundary-pushing, total sensory-inclusive, interactive extreme experience. It is one of the most incredibly intense live shows you will ever see, and the band are on the road to becoming one of Australia’s most recognised extreme music exports.
