“…a baptism of fusion with its gritty punk vocals, emotionally-rich blues tones, and a subtle hint of raw southern folk.”- Folknrock

“…a gritty protest anthem that feels like a dose of adrenaline.”- American Songwriter

“The JAB is the most crucial and captivating rock and roll band emerging from the ultra-competitive Chicago scene right now. The group’s debut album, Consume, comes out February 4th, 2020 . . . and a single listen will quickly prove that this bunch is the Truth.”- Rock and Blues Muse


Chicago rockers The JAB are debuting a new track “Dank Mississippi” off their LP ‘CONSUME’ which was released on Feb 4th via Medicine/The Orchard, a Sony-owned company.

Apple Music:

“Dank Mississippi” follows on the heels of the previously released single “Riot” which American Songwriter dubbed “a gritty protest anthem that feels like a dose of adrenaline.” Additional praise came from PopMatters which wrote, “The Jab finds the sweet spot between blues and punk…It’s soulful, complex, and the sound of smoldering rock ‘n’ roll ambitions and swagger presented in an infectious package.”

The video for “Riot” is streaming here:

The JAB frontman Jam Alker was showcasing his punk-blues aesthetic for major labels on the Chicago club circuit just a handful of years ago. With the world at his fingertips, he swapped his guitar for the needle and disappeared for nearly a decade.

In 2014, the birth of his daughter finally flipped the life or death switch and he began treatment. An arduous journey of detox and song-writing therapy laid the foundation for his debut LP, ‘CONSUME.’

Tom Stukel, Terry Byrne, Ryan Herrick, and Alex Piazza—all seasoned, dynamic players —collaborate with Jam on blue-collar thinking-man’s music, delivered with grit and transparency.

The result is the bluesy, post-classic rock, modern sludge rock record CONSUME. With bite-sized versions of Led Zeppelin’s monstrously thick-grooved riffs, the sensibilities of a Black Keys album, and an often-deep southern melody, CONSUME is the darkest feel-good record in years.
The JAB released its first single “Riot” on Dec. 13, 2019, and will be touring throughout 2020 in support of the release of CONSUME out on Feb. 4, 2020.
