The Jackobins return with new single "Pour Le Merite"

The Jackobins are back after a two year hiatus, with their brand new single "Pour Le Merite", and my gosh it has been well worth the wait. Having formed in Liverpool back in 2014 the band have appeared on this site many times before, we're big fans of their work, so when we heard they were releasing a new single we had to jump on it.

"Pour Le Merite" was recorded and produced at the infamous Parr Street Studios in Liverpool by Alex Quinn and is a big step forwards.

With their influences ranging from Kasabian, The Stone Roses, Foals as well as The Libertines this new effort is a big stadium ready cut that sounds like Kasabain wrote it, it's that huge. Having played at festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Isle of Wight, Kendal Calling and Y Not with the outfit also getting praise from Radio X, BBC 6 Music and BBC Radio Merseyside the band are not phased by big stages, lots of ears listening to their tracks and certainly gearing up for something big with the release of "Pour Le Merite".

Speaking about the tune the band said - "The recording session was pretty run of the mill, a relatively efficient affair. However, the filming of the music video was another affair, as it was very much a DIY project, with minimal crew, and so we found ourselves carrying endless props and costumes into the middle of a woods in Liverpool. We had enormous fun filming and stayed in costume over the entire weekend, one highlight was one dog walker mistaking us for a bunch of ghosts, (the costumes were pretty authentic to be fair!) We got to fight each other and after we wrapped, we had a sing along for a Christmas cover song we were making."

When a band comes off a hiatus sometimes the hype may have died or people could've forgotten about them, not here. The Jackobins have come back with "Pour Le Merite" right back on form, and with a dedicated fanbase already lapping up the track the Liverpool quintet are going to be once again on the lips of the tastemakers all over the world. So check out the new single down below and enjoy, I know we did!
