Jeremy Neale new album We Were Trying To Make It Out released today

Jeremy Neale has today released his new album We Were Trying To Make It Out. Watch the new video for ‘Tried and True (Raise the Roof)’ below. Brisbane fans can see Jeremy perform tonight at Jet Black Cat for a very special in-store at 6.30PM.

Across March, Jeremy will perform at Red Eye Records in Sydney, Summertown Studios in Adelaide and Rocksteady Records in Melbourne. Full details available below.

Sonically, We Were Trying to Make It Out contains Neale’s penchant for melodic hooks, delivered coherently and directly without compromise or pastiche. This is the Jeremy Neale sound – the result of years of searching and refining – honest, fully realised and immediate. Guitar pop underpinned by classic songwriting is potentially the recipe for finding oneself outside the current musical climate but is also the hallmark of creating something truly timeless.

On We Were Trying to Make It Out Neale explains the album title as the justification for the brutality you’ll put yourself through in an attempt to escape your demons.“There are a lot of sacrifices you have to make in order to create music if you’re not major label backed or independently wealthy and every mistake you make has direct consequences for your everyday quality of life.”

We Were Trying to Make It Out is a record written across two cities and two years. Early Jeremy Neale recordings might have read as a tribute to those who came before him, but here on his second record – he has found his sound and his voice.
