Indie rock band alt-J, along with special guest Jungle, will make its way to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Monday, April 13 at 8 p.m.
alt-J, the U.K.-based group comprised of Joe Newman (guitar, lead vocals), Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards, vocals) and Thom Green (drums), joined forces in 2007 while attending University of Leeds. The group developed its unusual softer sounds from recording in small student living halls and took the music world by storm in early 2012 by winning the Mercury Prize for its debut album, An Awesome Wave.
2014 was a banner year for alt-J, from the release of their sophomore full length, This Is All Yours, to an announced show at Madison Square Garden, and a Grammy Nomination for Alternative Music Album of the year. alt-J were named Spotify’s “Breakout Artist” in their Year in Music review. Rolling Stone ranked This Is All Yours #27 on their Albums Of The Year, TIME ranked it #3, and the album placed on NPR’s Favorite Albums of 2014. On December 15 the band performed “Every Other Freckle” <<http://abc.go.com/shows/jimmy-kimmel-live/video/vdka0_duvw6xhe>> and “Left Hand Free” <<http://abc.go.com/shows/jimmy-kimmel-live/news/editors-picks/20141215-alt-j-performs-left-hand-free>> on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Gracing the stages of iconic music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza and Coachella, alt-J has topped both the U.K. and U.S. music charts. With its release in 2014, the band’s sophomore album This Is All Yours reached No. 1 on the U.K. Official Albums Chart.
Also hailing from Great Britain, modern-soul group Jungle is known for its unique blend of percussion, bass, funk and falsetto vocals. The seven-piece band takes pride in the “life-enhancing, report-to-the-dance floor” sound it produces.
