2011 To The Present
In 2011 fans were to get some fantastic news as a compilation CD of old faves and previously unheard recordings was released. The band's website was also relaunched and a few gigs took place. 2012 and 2013 have seen the Sleigh The UK shows in the UK with Jesus Jones and Pop Will Eat Itself supporting the Wonder Stuff. After the last show of the 2013 Sleigh Tour, Tony announced he was hanging up his drumsticks. That was the bad news but the good news was that Gen was approached to come back and he said yes! Some great gigs followed in September 2014 when the band played the full version of Doubt including Are You Satisfied? to some old and new faces. November 2014 saw the release of the first four albums with enhanced content including video, remixes and unheard tracks. Currently the band are recording new tracks. The story is to be continued...
Jesus Jones played four gigs in August 2011. The first three were with The Wonder Stuff and The Clouds in Australia. The fourth gig was in Tokyo, Japan. Below are some links to the best youtube clips and photos.
