Resist Records welcomes Jacob to its roster. Despite being split between the two steel cities of New South Wales – Wollongong and Newcastle – the current incarnation of Jacob is tighter than ever before. With bassist Ruari Burns taking lead vocals for the first time, they look to redefine and reintroduce themselves with Show Me Some Passion: a catchy, energetic album filled genuine emotion and lyrics so romantic you’d swear they were singing the song just for you. 

Recorded at Newcastle’s Woodriver Studios, the album was produced by Aaron Dobos (Ceres, The Avalanches) and recorded by Joe Andersons, who worked with the band on their self-titled 2016 debut. The album also features the “oh so sweet” harmonies of Canberra band Moaning Lisa, as well as horns from local ska enthusiast Geoff Reid.

Pre order “Show Me Some Passion”


Baltimore indie post-hardcore band Pianos Become the Teeth have announced Australian dates for 2019. Having toured Australia in 2017 with Luca Brasi and in 2013 with La Dispute, February 2019 sees the band headlining Australia for the first time.

With the recent release of their fourth full-length, Wait For Love follows 2014’s acclaimed Keep You. Lauded by Pitchfork as “captivating in its evocative detail” and “their best material yet” by Brooklyn Vegan.

Produced and engineered by Will Yip, Wait For Love shows the band reconciling their aggressive past with the atmospheric turns of Keep You. The album eschews stylistic traps in order to focus on songwriting and feels like a full-realization of what the band have hinted at in the past.
