Bio: JEFF THE BROTHERHOOD is Jake and Jamin Orrall, two brothers that play drums and guitar. They grew up in Tennessee making music and trying to have a good time. Since their inception they have been playing anywhere from house parties to rooftops, backyards, bars and art galleries and releasing their own records, tapes, comic books and home made videos.
THE BROTHERHOOD has been called "kraut punk", "psychedelic grunge" and "noise pop" drawing comparisons to bands like Hawkwind, Wipers, and early Sonic Youth.
They have been carrying their heavy damage all over the country since 2006 and have shared bills with Oneida, Battles, Sonic Youth, Ex-Models, Jay Reatard, Black Pus and Dave Cloud. Their "we'll play anywhere" attitude and frenetic live shows have earned them near legendary status in the clubs and basements of Nashville and beyond. With three guitar strings and a minimal drum kit, they manage to distill rock to its primal essence.
JEFF released Heavy Days in October of 2009 on family-owned Infinity Cat Records and quickly won praises from the likes of Brooklyn Vegan, Spin, RCRD LBL, the Tripwire, My Old Kentucky Blog, KEXP, Paste, Village Voice, Nylon, Nashville Scene (who recently awarded Infinity Cat “Best Nashville Record Label”), among others. JEFF supported the release with tours alongside Screaming Females, Ted Leo, Ty Segall, Lightning Bolt and more, while their frenetic performances at CMJ ’09, SXSW ’10, Chaos in Tejas, MFNW, and Bumbershoot were heralded by fans and critics alike.
