THE JEZABELS have just announced a national tour tocelebrate the 10th Anniversary of their 2011 Australian Music Prize, ARIA &AIR Award Winning, ARIA #2, iTunes #1, Gold Album Prisoner! For thefirst time, the band will be playing their most successful record, in itsentirety live on stage.
“We couldn't be more excited to be gettingback together again for an Australian tour to celebrate the tenth anniversaryof our debut album 'Prisoner'. We are pleased to say we'll be playing this babylive in full for the first time. It's been a hell of a decade since it cameout, but it's made us all the more grateful for some of the things we took forgranted. Like so many bands, playing our records live was always as important,if not more important, than making those records. We can't think of a better wayto celebrate 'Prisoner' and say thank you to our fans that have supported usover the years than to announce this tour. We hope you can join us,” saysthe band.

Prisoner is a panoramic study of tension andemancipation, from the echoing stone cathedral of the title track to thesun-blasted morning of the first single, Endless Summer; from the cloisteredatmospherics of the instrumental interlude, Austerlitz, to the chiming andclimbing pop of Deep Wide Ocean and the quiet reflecting pool of Peace of Mind.
To markthe occasion, they will be releasing a limited collectors 7inch of a liverecording of City Girl, captured at the Forum Theatre in Melbourne in 2011. The7inch will only be available to ticket buyers to purchase.
“Prisoner is also arguably the onlyJezabels album that feels like an entirely cohesive body of work. The songsoccupy the same musical universe — and more often than not, they bleed intoeach other, making the full 59-minutes feel like one great continuous ebb andflow.” Junkee
“The Jezabels' immense sound isn't justimposing; it also upends familiar assumptions.”
