THE Scream­ing Jets will bring their Rock and Roll Ram­page tour to Rooty Hill this week­end.

The show will be part of the big­gest tour the group has un­der­taken in years.

The Scream­ing Jets need no in­tro­duc­tion to Aus­tralian rock fans - they have been a per­ma­nent force on the live mu­sic scene since they burst onto the air­waves in 1989 from their home­town, New­cas­tle.

Their de­but al­bum re­leased in the early 1990s, All For One, ce­mented the band in Aus­tralian rock his­tory. Since then, the band hasn’t stopped, pro­duc­ing nu­mer­ous hits in­clud­ing Help­ing Hand, Oc­to­ber Grey and Sad Song.

Now The Scream­ing Jets are chan­nelling their for­mi­da­ble rock pres­ence back into their live shows. They can’t wait to hit the road, with lead vo­cal­ist Dave Glee­son say­ing he was look­ing for­ward to the chal­lenge.

“Aussie pub stages are a do-or­die en­vi­ron­ment,” he said.

Af­ter their sell­out 25th an­niver­sary Atomic 47 tour in 2014, the band got down to busi­ness. They spent sev­eral months in the stu­dio lay­ing down tracks for their new, highly an­tic­i­pated al­bum.

“It’ll be a big rock sound in an in­ti­mate set­ting,” Glee­son said of their lat­est show.

“(We’ll) blast some tracks off our new al­bum, as well as a bunch of songs that peo­ple know and love.”

The band has al­ways had a stel­lar rep­u­ta­tion for their live shows, from their rich brand of rock to wild on­stage an­tics.

An evening in the com­pany of The Scream­ing Jets is an evening rev­el­ling in true Aus­tralian rock. It’s one that all Rooty Hill fans should en­joy.

The Scream­ing Jets are back on tour and will play at Rooty Hill RSL Club this Satur­day.
