Jacuzzi Boys’ Tour With Wavves + King Tuff

Jacuzzi Boys' U.S. tour with Wavves + King Tuff kicks off today. Latest album "Jacuzzi Boys" now out on Hardly Art Records.

Miami rockers Jacuzzi Boys join Sub Pop brother-in-(guit)arms King Tuff and self-identified King of the Beach Wavves for a massive nationwide tour, kicking off Friday night in Nashville. Tonight, the Boys  play St. Augustine, the first of an eventual 13 headlining dates. Their journey will send them up the Eastern Seaboard, down through the South, up the West Coast, and across the Midwest on their way back to their native Florida for a homecoming show on Halloween night and a brewery show the following evening as the ultimate tour capper. Jacuzzi Boys recently dropped a new, self-titled full-length album to high praise, with Consequence of Sound enthusing, “Jacuzzi Boys succeed beyond all expectations…The album is an expertly cultivated collection of earworms.”

The year, 2007. The Boys, Jacuzzi. Hatched inside a vulture’s nest, Jacuzzi Boys emerged from deep within the Florida wilds, three radioactive chicks cawing for their piece of electric rock pie.

With No Seasons (Florida’s Dying) they freaked their way through the swamps, a psycho stomp of a record, all hallucinations and hand claps. Glazin’ (Hardly Art) found a more polished sound. They installed AC units inside their mobile homes, found a way to turn neon into ice cubes. Now, with their third full-length, the self-titled Jacuzzi Boys, they’re going grand, building limestone monuments to those that boogied before them, while writing hypnotic ear worms by the light of a cigarette. Gone is the swamp-thing snarl. In its place, the indestructible cool of the casino slot-jockey with nothing to lose.

Recorded at Key Club Recording Co. in Benton Harbor, Michigan—same as 2010’s Glazin’—the new record takes full advantage of expert engineers Bill Skibbe and Jessica Ruffins’ sonic sandlot, with Kramer in charge of mastering. The end result? A smashing set of tunes as dazzling as a sparkler.
