      Andrew Jackson Jihad

      At their core, Andrew Jackson Jihad is a band made up of a social worker and a gravedigger. Starting in 2004 and hailing from Phoenix, Arizona, they make music that attempts to understand and explain human nature. The music focuses on the horrid and beautiful ways that people treat each other, as well as the possibility that one day we will be able to reconcile these two forces. Traditionally playing live as a two-person band (Sean Bonnette: guitar, vocals. Ben Gallaty: upright bass, vocals), Andrew Jackson Jihad's show is a cathartic experience that invites the audience to sing along. With the energy of a punk band, they blaze through song after song, while stopping occasionally to interact with their audience. Their lyrics are tragic yet humorous, crass yet intelligent, heartbreaking yet uplifting. One listener has described the music as "sad in the key of happy." In September of 2011, AJJ released their fourth studio album Knife Man on Asian Man Records. This spring they will embark on their first tour as a full band with the help of three of the Knife Man musicians, Owen Evans (ROAR), Preston Bryant (French Quarter), and Deacon Blue Batchelor (Malakai). The first leg of this tour will feature support by longtime friends Laura Stevenson & The Cans (Don Giovanni Records) and ROAR (Really Records). Andrew Jackson Jihad has played shows with Frank Turner, The Gaslight Anthem, Xiu Xiu, Titus Andronicus, Against Me!, and Deer Tick among many others.
