Jacob are a band united by their passion for cheesy emo-rockand DIY practices. Drawing on beloved bands such as Saves the Day, Taking Back Sunday and The Get Up Kids, Jacob take a distinctive and often tongue-in-cheek approach to the emo-genre. It’s been an interesting trajectory for the band over the years,with members split between Wollongong and Newcastle. Essentially in a long-distance relationship with itself, Jacob have put in the hard yards of performing and touring over the last three years in support of three EP’s and an album.Their journey has lead them to stages across the country; opening for acclaimed international acts such as Against Me!, Joyce Manor, The Hotelier and Tigers Jaw, as well asAustralian favourites Luca Brasi, Ceres, Trophy Eyes and Tired Lion.
In 2017, Jacob are hard at work,writing for their second LP. Whilst the new single is not taken directly from the forthcoming album, ‘How Long Until You’re Next to Me?’ sets the tone for Jacob 2.0. The future looks promising for Jacob, as they continue to write and plan for their second LP and a tour, which coincides with its release.
