US rockers Big Jesus’s label debut ‘Oneiric’ will be released September 30th, 2016 via Mascot Label Group / Mascot Records.
Contrasting loud and heavy fuzz-laden tones with soft, pop-melodic vocals, BIG JESUS has garnered comparisons to My Bloody Valentine and early Smashing Pumpkins. Alternative Press featured BIG JESUS as an “Artist to Watch,” saying they “tear up the rulebook on the genre and boast one of the very best names in rock to boot.”
The band’s eclectic sound stems from their surroundings and upbringing in the Atlanta, GA music scene, with influences ranging from metal, psychedelic pop, shoegaze, hip hop to classical piano music, The first cut on the album, “SP,” starts off energetically, with big guitars, a heavy beat and melodic vocals that give it an almost psychedelic feel.
BIG JESUS will tour throughout 2016, including several shows in Europe and the UK at the end of August.

Saturday August 20: Palladium – Cologne, Germany (with Good Charlotte)
Sunday August 21: Tivoli – Utrecht, the Netherlands (with Good Charlotte)
