On May 26, Jesse James Dupree of Georgia-based rockers JACKYL was interviewed on Santa Rosa, California's 101.7 The Fox radio station inside the "Less Is More Lounge." Watch the nine-minute chat below.
"When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide", the new album from JACKYL, sold 3,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 192 on The Billboard 200 chart.
To celebrate the release of the new album, Jesse James Dupree, guitarist Jeff Worley, bassist Roman Glick and drummer Chris Worley have been on a promotional tour, partnering up with radio stations in cities across the South and Midwest. The band has targeted some of its favorite strip clubs in which to throw a series of CD-release parties that are doubling as on-location video shoots for "She's Not A Drug".
Dupree had this to say: "From all of the phone calls that we made to the people that pre-ordered 'When Moonshine And Dynamite Collide' and through these 12 dates of CD-release parties that radio stations up though the Midwest have thrown us and now seeing the first-week chart numbers, the obvious is that people are ready to ROCK!!!!!! PUH-POW!"
"When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide" was released on May 4 via Mighty Loud.
JACKYL has earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation "The Hardest Working Band in Rock 'N' Roll" for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Staying true to its working-band roots, JACKYL is a staple on the summer festival circuit and maintains its commitment to every show being the sonic equivalent to a man being shot out of a cannon.
JACKYL was recently featured on the hit TruTV show "Full Throttle Saloon", which was created and executive produced by Jesse James Dupree, and the band will be headlining an extensive tour through 2010 in support of "When Moonshine and Dynamite Collide".
