- Unsigned the Magazine recently described Jekyl as "Combining all the best elements of vintage British Hard Rock and displaying absolutely none of Metal's cheesy preening and posing, Jekyl hits like a fist to the face."
Having won numerous awards throughout Ireland, and gained a number two slot on Ireland's independent download charts, the band were inspired to pack their bags and head the six and half thousand miles to L.A. in a fortune favors the bold maneuver to seek all the best America has to offer.
With anticipation already growing around L.A. as to what these Irish lads are capable of hopes are high that they are bringing something very special to California - something to write home about.
Huge thanks to all our loyal fans, friends, and family who continue to support us through everything!!!

No Regrets...No Surrender...
After 3 years serving the Jekyl campaign, Shane has made the difficult
decision to move back to Ireland due to his own personal reasons.
Drumming auditions immediately took place to find a replacement and it
was an Australian this time to step up and fill the void. John Sankey
(Devolved), an extremely talented drummer joined the ranks of the
Jekyl army mid October and has already played 4 successful and
explosive shows, his first being the world famous Whisky a Go Go.
November 25th sees Jekyl playing our first ever acoustic set,
supporting the legendary Hollywood rockers L.A. Guns on the Sunset
strip. Initially apprehensive, we sat down and jammed out some of our
songs and with some adjustments here and there, turns out were a force
to be reckoned with unplugged too!!
Along side that we are recording a 4 track demo for you all, so anyone
who hasn't got to listen to our new songs live or indeed those of you
who have been requesting some more recorded material, hold out a
little longer, we have some new ,ear blistering tracks coming your
way. Face your Fears just might have a video coming out for it early
2010 also, so keep an eye on the TV.
So as we draw closer to the end of 2009, Jekyl would like to thank
everyone for their continued support, and well wishes. See you all
back in Ireland in December for a pint !
Until then... Fist to the air and Rock On my metal friends...

Its been a busy few weeks.
Jekyl have been working hard the past few months, spreading the name and adding more people to the ranks. We've been playing anywhere and everwhere to show this town what we're all about. Also, a good friend of Jekyl's, Jeff Solema has finished a music video for the ong Life be sure to cheeck it out at,
Last week Tom, Shane, and Dave headed into the desert of San Bernadino to see some of the best names in metal music to date. The stage was graced with the likes of , Slayer, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Bullet for my Valentine and many more. To top it off, we got to spend the day sitting around and hanging out in the VIP area where we got to meet and hang out with Howard Jones - Killswitch Frontman and Matt Tuck - frontman for Bullet. It was a great day that filled us all with inspiration. Be sure to check out the pics.
Whisky A Go Go.
This week saw us playing back in the Whisky. This time playing support to CJ Romone of The Ramones. When we arrived at the Whisky we caught the end of CJ's two hour sound check and from the sound of that, we knew we'd be in for a good night. We hit the stage around 9:30pm and played like we never have before. CJ came on just after us and blew the place apart. Sharing the stage with him was an honor that we won't forget to soon.

JEKYL become The Whisky A Go Go’s International House band.
We received big news at the JEKYL house this week. Yesterday it was officially announced via the ‘L.A. Weekly’ that JEKYL are now The International House Band for The World Famous Whisky A Go Go. We are proud as hell to have been given this opportunity from a venue with such great history.
We would like to express many thanks to Celina, Tisa, and all the staff at The Whisky that have made us so welcome.
Located on the legendary Sunset Strip, the rock n’ roll scene in Los Angeles was born when The Whisky started operation. From rock to punk to heavy metal, the club stood at the forefront of many musical trends. The Whisky has played an important role in many musical careers, especially for bands based in Southern California. The Byrds, Alice Cooper, Buffalo Springfield and Love were regulars, and The Doors were the house band for a while. It has been home to bands such as, Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Motley Crue, and many more. The Whisky is now home to JEKYL, and it’s great to be a part of its history.
Also in the JEKYL house this week we have some new house mates. Irish band, Mike Got Spiked have moved in with us while they try to push their music as well. With that said, MGS also introduced us to another Limerick based band called We Should Be Dead. Now with three bands in L.A. flying the Irish flag, the music scene in L.A. is set to be dominated by talented Irish acts.
On a final note, this week we saw the views on our Flashrock video hit the 6,400 mark and it’s still rising every day. If you still haven’t seen it get on to the Flashrock site and check it out.
