WE PLAYED THE CLASSIC ROCK AWARDS!

Last night at the Classic Rock Awards. We weren't up for any awards, so we were never going to win anything, but they did ask us to play a couple of songs, so that was a real blast. Duff McKagen was the host for the night, and extremely complimentary about us, even made the whole audience applaud us on two separate occasions during the course of the evening. What a nice man! We played pumped up acoustic versions of Soul On Fire & Angel. We were great, they loved us, and we were chuffed to pieces. Oh, and there's a free download version of Garden Of Eden on our store.. If you haven't signed up for it please do, and we'll be putting up an EP video update later this week for those of you who have pledged for it..

WE'RE MAKING AN EP, AND YOU CAN HELP!

BIG NEWS PEOPLE! As you may know we’ve been working on our second album, and whilst the songs are sounding great, we want it to be absolutely incredible, so we’re taking our time. Sadly this means it won’t be released for little while, but don’t put the Champagne away just yet, for we bring good news… We know you want new stuff, because you are constantly telling us, so we thought we’d release an EP to keep you going for a bit until the new album is ready. “Ladies & Gents” will be a 7 track EP containing a mixture of 2 unreleased songs we’ve played live but not recorded before, as well as re-worked stripped back versions of 4 songs from our first album “Diary Of A Soul Fiend”. Not only that, there’s going to be a cracking cover thrown in for good measure. For this release, we’ve teamed up with Pledge Music to bring you the EP, but also some fantastic Saint Jude goodies to go with it. Some are physical things, and some are Saint Jude experiences, but all are exclusive to Saint Jude fans who Pledge. Check out our Pledge site, and remember, whatever you pledge, you will receive the EP download, as well as our exclusive Pledger updates. Feel free to tell everyone you know!

LYNNE TEAMS UP WITH THE ANSWER!

Yep, that's Lynne in the new video for Nowhere Freeway, with our friends The Answer! Check it out.

04.01.2012

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We had an absolutely fantastic mini-tour of the UK, thank you so much to everyone who came down to rock with us!
The Guardian gave us a neat little write-up. Oh, and we had a terrific picture review in The Times! And here's what some other rather lovely people had to say so far:

"Only by watching Lynne give her performance can you truly appreciate why soul is called soul," over at Get Ready To Rock
"If you want to see a band playing 60s and 70s influenced party rock 'n' roll then there is no better band in the country right now," over at Harmonic Prospector

We can't wait to hit the road again, but first, we'll be concentrating all our efforts on writing album number two. Exciting times!

And don't forget to check out our online store, complete with our new tour shirt!


Thanks so much for for your support. Don't forget to find us on Facebook and Twitter for more updates!

SAINT JUDE NEWS...

We didn't win the Best New Band award at the Classic Rock Awards on 09/11/11, but we did get to hang out with some serious legends, and there's always next year of course.. Lynne was on the same table as Steel Panther, which was great fun, as you can imagine.

Having Diary Of A Soul Fiend in with this month's Classic Rock mag, with an interview with Lynne, and pics, and a tour ad makes it look a little bit like Saint Jude Monthly, which is of course no bad thing... Resistance is useless...

The recent acoustic session was really great, so please feel free to download Garden Of Eden for free (link up the top), and you are of course welcome to encourage others to do so (which will help us build our mailing list so go for it peeps!). We're thinking of releasing the acoustic session at some stage soon, so watch this space.

In the meantime check out our new online store, more items to be announced soon, all designed to make you look like a Maximum Rock 'n' Roll Fiend, and help you spread the SJ word at the same time...

Thanks a lot, and keep it real and keep it rock...

SAINT JUDE ANNOUNCE DEBUT UK TOUR!
Rolling Stones-approved rock and soul band Saint Jude are proud to announce their debut mini-tour of the UK this December!

"Saint Jude are a rock and roll stick of dynamite waiting to explode!" Classic Rock

"Saint Jude are embryonic superstars." Tribune

"It's easy to see why Ronnie Wood and Jimmy Page are fans." Q

London’s Saint Jude are easily one of the rock industry’s most hotly-tipped acts. Recently nominated Best New Band at the 2011 Classic Rock magazine Roll of Honour, the ferociously talented six-piece are fresh from a whirlwind summer circuit that included the UK’s Guilfest, Cornbury, Sonisphere, and High Voltage festivals where they positively brought the house down on the main stage.

Spearheaded by the jaw-dropping vocal talents of soul diva Lynne Jackaman, whose breathtaking range and delivery has invited comparisons to everyone from Janis Joplin to Tina Turner to Aretha Franklin, her voice is truly once in a generation, and her collaborations with artists as diverse as Ray Lamontagne, Snoop Dogg, and Frankie Miller speak volumes about her abilities.

Backed up by a Hammond B-fuelled tight-as-a-drum five-piece that conjure The Faces one moment and the Black Crowes or the Allman Brothers the next, Saint Jude are easily one of the UK’s hottest talents.

Following the release of last year’s rapturously-received Diary Of A Soul Fiend, a debut album produced by Rolling Stones-producer Chris Kimsey, recorded in Kentucky and featuring a guest performance Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, Saint Jude have won acclaim from fans and critics alike. Catch ‘em while you can.

Tickets will go on sale at 9am on Monday, September 19th.
