(February 22, 2011 – Brooklyn, NY) J*DaVeY is excited to release their free downloadable 5-song EP Evil Christian Cop today via their website jdavey.bandcamp.com/. This release marks the duo’s first release in over a year and is the second free EP in a series they call The Great Mistapes.
Evil Christian Cop was inspired by the dark undercurrents that exist in the phrase “To protect and serve.” As producer Brook D’Leau explains, “Why should we rely on an evil stranger to protect and serve when you have the power to protect and serve yourself?” The EP features co-production by Greg Wells (“Teen Spirit”), GB (“Lazy Daze”), and LA-based lyricist DefSound. Full of synths, alluring vocals, and distinct production, the seductive twosome provide a dreamy soundscape for listeners to lose themselves in. Jack Davey and Brook leave all interpretations up to the listener. “We cannot provide the message, we simply provide the mental playground for the listeners’ minds to go wild upon,” says Brook.
J*DaVeY will be touring with rapper Blu from the West Coast to Texas to make their first SXSW appearance this year at the Audible Treats x PrefixMag.com showcase on Friday, March 18th at Nuvola. The duo will then tour the East Coast in April and Europe in May. Tour dates are available on their fan page: facebook.com/WeAreJDaVeY. With momentum steadily building throughout Spring, J*DaVeY will be releasing their full-length album New Designer Drug on their own label TheIllav8r.com this summer.
