Tuesday, June 9, 2017, We’re proud to announce, Epic Tales of Human Nature, the long-awaited full-length concept album from Dallas ALT-rock juggernaut, JIBE.
Recorded at Orb Recording studios in Austin, TX, produced by Matt Noveskey (Blue October), and mixed by Grammy award-winning producer/engineer, Toby Wright (Metallica, Alice In Chains, Korn), Epic Tales of Human Nature reflects a fire and intensity lacking in today’s world. From beginning to the very end this 13 song masterpiece takes the listener on a journey of uncontainable highs and devastatingly toxic lows, a story all too familiar with the boys in JIBE.
With lead singles The Human Condition & We’ve Only Just Begun already unwrapped, Epic Tales of Human Nature bleeds endless jewels just waiting to be discovered.
The band is back stronger than ever and ready to engage as the boys find their center in an uncertain universe.
Dallas Alt-rock Juggernaut Jibe, following a notorious 11 year break up, reform and sellout reunion show in under 10 hours.
On June 26, 2015, after 11 years apart, Dallas Alt-rock juggernaut Jibe secretly entered a Texas studio to begin pre-production for the follow up to 2003’s epic release, Uprising.
The people have spoken: On Friday, July 17, Jibe sold out their September 25, 2015, Dallas reunion show in just 10 hours. Joe, Toby, Ben & Corey are grateful and excited with the overwhelming response to their long overdue return. The guy’s are currently preparing for a full comeback that will surely please all of those die-hard fans in need.
“Yesterday’s gone. Tomorrow never knows. Today will never be the same again.”
– Jibe, “Yesterday’s Gone”, Uprising
Funny how these simple perceptive words can impact a listener with such devastation that it can forever alter their mindset. This brutal truth coupled with the band’s passionate live display made Jibe standout in Dallas’ music scene, and elevated the artists, along with their relentless touring schedule, to a national presence.
The releasing and unleashing of instinctual energy is what a live Jibe experience is all about. The band’s dynamic, adrenaline-fueled performance motions the crowd to become lost in the thrill of the moment. Spontaneous shifts and bursts inspire both the band and fans actions as front man Joe Grah often joins the two by blindly leaping into the arms of the audience. Chaotic and intense, each live Jibe show, much like their album Uprising, exudes a feeling of elation.
Uprising captures twelve dynamic rock tracks exploring Jibe’s reckless, melodic artistry. Defined as four unique entities moving together on a parallel path to achieve harmony and accord, Uprising specifically explains the curious unicity of Jibe’s remarkable sound.
The men of Jibe crossed paths in Dallas, TX after originating in four different parts of the country. Joe Grah (vocals), Toby Bittenbender (guitar), Ben Jeffries (drums) and Corey Tatro (bass) have performed over 2,500 shows as a band and successfully built a brotherhood alongside a flourishing audible sensation. Exercising their thirst for sweat and fan interaction Jibe has taken to countless stages from West Hollywood (Viper Room, Roxy) to New York (C.B.G.B.’s). The band has toured with the Toadies, Marilyn Manson, Kings Of Leon, Nickelback, Staind, Sevendust, Godsmack, Suicidal Tendencies, Damage Plan, Seether, Drowning Pool, Saliva, Jerry Cantrell, Shinedown, Our Lady Peace, Lit, Sammy Hagar, Oleander, Ours & countless bands from around the world.
