Shaka Rock--the third studio album from Australian rockers Jet--was recorded between Miami, Brooklyn, Austin, Sydney and Melbourne, with the band working side by side as co-producers with Chris "Frenchie" Smith to ensure that Shaka Rock would live up to their own expectations.
Having established themselves on the international stage as a multi-platinum selling band with four million albums sold world wide, Shaka Rock closes the gap between the raw roots of 2003's Get Born and the grace and melody of 2006's Shine On. Shaka Rock captures the charisma and energy of classic rock and roll with just enough swagger and contemporary flair to create something distinctively Jet.
When talking about Jet s three studio albums, Nic Cester says, "For better or worse every album is a real and accurate window into how we are reacting to our lives in that point in time which is why every album is uniquely different, and I think Shaka Rock is the most honest so far."
While Chris Cester says, "I can say that the band is thrilled with Shaka Rock in every conceivable way. We've had a don't think twice attitude throughout the making of this record which continues as we get ready to release it. I think Shaka Rock is like when TV went colour. It s our musical equivalent. There are moments on this record that are just pure, and moments that just rock harder than we ever have before."
In a sea of modern rock bands, Jet are something uniquely different embracing all that was and is rock 'n' roll.
