That’s right JuggaNote will be supporting Akala on the last date of his 2013 UK tour. The event to be held in Cardiff’s The Moon Club on December 5th is yet another benchmark gig for the band as they push to reach an ever wider audience with their genre shifting sounds.
If you follow JuggaNote you will have noticed a slow but notable increase in next level support slots and to no fixed style or genre. This particular gig is one of the biggest honours and opportunities for the band, not just playing with such an established artist but with someone like Akala who intelligently addresses relevant issues head on.
The tour comes off the back of Akala’s 4th album release titled ‘The Theives Banquet’ released earlier this year. Written and co-produced by Akala and recorded with a full live band featuring Cassell ‘The Beatmaker’ (The Streets) on drums and Eric Appapoulay (Plan B) on bass, ‘The Thieves Banquet’ is inspired by the title of Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s Novel ‘The Devil On The Cross’. Effortlessly fusing rap, rock and electro-punk sounds with thought-provoking lyrical storytelling, ‘The Thieves Banquet’, is arguably Akala’s most inspired work to date.

JuggaNote’s debut album ‘Synchronised Rotation’ is taking shape scheduled for release June this year.
We’re offering up the opportunity for anyone interested to design the cover artwork for this new project. We will be producing a limited run of physical CD’s as well as making the album available for digital distribution worldwide. The work chosen by the band will not only be featured in reviews both on and offline but will be forever cemented as part of JuggaNote’s history joining their growing body of work.
A word on style, design and medium – We will look at and consider anything you send, we don’t have any real specifications on style etc we just want an original piece of artwork, whether photograph, painting, pencil sketch or Photoshop image whatever. We just want you to be imaginative and creative with your interpretation of our sound, read our lyrics, check out our previous releases and feel free to get in touch with any questions.
Unless it is part of your design don’t worry about including text or album details as we’ll sort that out ourselves. We are mainly looking for an image for the front cover that fits, but feel free to continue your work and include any ideas/concepts for the inlay and back cover etc also. An appropriate album cover template is available on request. The album track listing is yet to be finalised but is likely to include at least some of these; Insecure Perceptions, Katana, Head Strong, Let em Know, The Victor.
If we choose your work, along with being fully credited you will receive a copy of the album, some of our previous releases as well as a JuggaNote merchandise goody bag. If you happen to be local or are able to get to a gig you will also be included on the guest list of all of our gigs for a year.
If you’re interested and want your work to get to a larger audience, just send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, any work/fan art sent to us on any other email or social network site (although appreciated) will not be considered for the album cover.
Finally there is no limit to submissions, so feel free to send as many ideas as you have.
