Already known to fans as a firm live favourite, the release has been rapturously received at radio too with plays from BBC Introducing, Virgin Radio, BBC Radio 6Music, not to mention making its way straight on to the Radio X X-Posure Playlist.
Set at a breakneck pace with barely second to catch your breath, R.O.S.I.E. is effervescent new single dedicated to a certain femme fatale with an appetite for the wilder things in life.
Recorded in Manchester and produced by David Rahad-Jones, this new studio recording has all the hallmarks of the original demo that had become a party-starting staple in their live cannon, but reworked with the tempo-upped for an added electric intensity.
Speaking about the track, Jordan says:
“R.O.S.I.E is a song about a posh girl that I met on my course at Uni who I hardly ever saw, because she was always out on mad three-day benders. The first time I saw her she burst in this massive snow leopard coat about 45 minutes late with shades she'd not been to bed. It's about how we eventually became mates and a few of the zany nights we had together.”
Still friends now, the real-life Rosie is set to feature on the single cover, plus a limited range of t-shirts to be sold at the band’s upcoming UK tour - a run of dates set to be the biggest shows of their career so far.
Kicking off in Preston on the 30th November and taking in a total of 16 dates from there on, the band will be also be heading to the likes of Glasgow, Hull, Birmingham, Cambridge, Southampton, London and more. Proceedings wind up in their native north west, with tickets for the Manchester and Liverpool dates selling like hot cakes. Tickets are on sale now and available from: www.jordan-allen.com
Speaking about the upcoming UK tour, Jordan says:
“We can't wait to get out and play these headline shows. To see people buying tickets to see us across the country is such an honour, we're really proud of the set we have put together too. We have plenty of new material to play too and some great stuff recorded for 2018, the momentum is going to be huge.”
Notching up sets at major festivals the likes of Tramlines and Dot To Dot, having a blast on the road with The Sherlocks, not to mention having their track “110 Ways to Make Things Better” voted by the public as the #1 anthem of Virgin Radio’s Freshfest as picked from 1000’s of entries - it’s already been quite the year for Jordan Allen. Making waves early on in 2017 with their triumphant and touching ‘Livin’ La Vida Bolton’ charity EP, the band also played to a 2500 sold out capacity crowd at Manchester Academy in support of northern compadres The Sherlocks, with whom they played a spate of shows together earlier this year. Igniting the tour with a bang, Jordan Allen have also been given the eternal honour of illuminating the Christmas Lights in Bolton on 30th November.
On the Winter tour Jordan Allen will also be joined by friends and local talent, with each night promising a rotating showcase of top flight new artists. Some of the more regular fixtures for the tour include Devon rockers SEVEN CITIES who are currently putting the finishing touches to their latest EP, plus electrifying and enigmatic Scottish outfit REAL LIFE ENTERTAINMENT fresh from their crowning victory as winners of The Pogues Whiskey: Shot At Discovery’s five month search for the UK’s next big rock band.
