To get us pumped for The Philadelphia Grand Jury’s national karaoke tour that kicks off this Friday in Brisbane the band today release ‘Spend More Time’, a retake on their track ‘Spend More Time With You’, from their 2015 LP, ‘Summer Of Doom’, and the first official single off their brand spanking new LP due in late 2016.

With backing vocals recorded in a car, in a car park at Clovelly at midnight, the track is inspired by the youthful sounds of The Troggs and is one of the band’s favourite tracks from the record.


Philadelphia Grand Jury have never done things the conventional way, from launching their first album ‘Hope Is For Hopers’ by playing shows around Sydney on the back of a truck, to recording in a dangerously unfinished building site, to holding a listening party for their latest album ‘Summer Of Doom’ on a free bus around the city.  So it somehow makes sense that they’re about to embark on a concept tour, taking their already infamous crowd interaction to the next level.

Getting personal at up-close venues around the country, the Philly Jays will be creating their very own karaoke bars where some lucky fans will be able to get up on stage and join the band to sing their favourite Philadelphia Grand Jury songs.  There might even be some classic karaoke covers thrown in there as well.

‘Spend More Time’ is available digitally Friday May 27 via Inertia. 

‘Summer Of Doom’ is available digitally and in store now via Inertia.
