Philadelphia Grand Jury make new single, stage final Australian shows, and move to the UK

Australian group Philadelphia Grand Jury’s new single ‘I Don’t Want To Party (Party),’ a live favourite, will be released via iTunes on March 22nd. The single is joined by three exclusive tracks, including a disco remix of album track ‘Wet Winter Holiday’ by Mike FWD, a solo track by lead singer and producer Berkfinger called ‘Jimmy At The Whorehouse’ which is the first cut off a self-produced solo concept album due out later in the year, and a hip-hop funk jam called ‘Both Kinds Of Music’ written, sung and produced by the band’s new drummer Calvin. Calvin (yes just Calvin) is a 56 year-old African American drummer who has lended his sticks to US disco, Earth Wind and Fire, and bebop legend Sonny Stitt.

To celebrate the single Philadelphia Grand Jury will be touring throughout April with special guests The John Steel Singers for what will be their final Australian shows for the foreseeable future. The band will then re-locate to the UK where they have a deal with London based Beggar’s label ‘Too Pure’ and a series of club shows leading into the Northern Summer.
