Following up on recent buzz generated in the live arena, Maryland-based alt/prog outfit The Dirty Jacks are gearing up to release their latest studio EP, All Part of the Plan.
The technically skilled quintet of Colin Ball (lead vocals, guitar), Billy Rommal (lead guitar), Bobby Scott (bass, vocals), Erik Hildebrant (drums) and Ian Hildebrant (keys, vocals) came together after various jam sessions inspired by acts like Mute Math, Tool and Minus the Bear. Tirelessly touring and working on their sound, The Dirty Jacks have evolved towards more dynamic song compositions including three part harmonies and complex rhythms.
Along with their internal build, the band has grown out on the road playing some of Maryland’s largest venues including The Fillmore, Jammin Java, The Recher Theatre and Rams Head Live. Their success on tour includes winning the 2012 Washington Auto Show’s Battle of the Bands and Jammin’ Java’s Mid-Atlantic Band Battle Six leading to The Dirty Jacks being voted band of the month, April 2012, on The Deli Magazine. With these accolades in the rearview, the appropriately titled All Part of the Plan EP will look to continue The Dirty Jacks’ steady rise when it’s released later this fall.
For now though, they have revealed their latest single, From The Ashes To Attack which you can hear here.
