The Jelly Jam will release their epic new album Profit on 27th May 2016 via Music Theories Recordings.
The Jelly Jam, featuring DREAM THEATER’s John Myung, WINGER/DIXIE DREGS‘ (live) Rod Morgenstein and KING’S X Ty Tabor, will return in 2016 with a new album and their first ever world tour.
Profit is a glorious and affecting cinematic experience; full of suspense, the record follows the heroic yet daunting journey of The Prophet who, inspired by a deep sense of responsibility embarks on a mission to try and save the world, to open the eyes of Those Who Will Not See.
TY Tabor says the concept of the album is “a fight between progress and jobs at all cost and not thinking about any future payment that are going to have to be made.” He continues: “Each JELLY JAM album is very different and we are most definitely discovering new ground. The first album was pretty straight ahead in its nature and vibe. The second album was more about the songwriting and had a very different feel. By the time we got to ‘Shall We Descend’, we were all at different musical places. It had more of a darker edge to it, but we finally realized that we had tapped in to something that was unique to us. There really is no JELLY JAM ‘sound’.
“In order to make ‘Profit’ the strongest album, we recorded a lot of excess music and chose songs that work together towards the general story idea. Musically and sonically, we started experimenting a lot further than we had before. It stands on its own as an album beginning to end with a purpose. It’s not just a bunch of songs thrown together. It’s an entire journey through a story.”
