It’s been another big year for reunited indie/emo rockers The Jazz June who originally started their eight year run in 1996 in a small town in Pennsylvania named Kutztown. The band stopped playing live in 2004, but remained close and continued to write songs and collaborate on each others’ projects.

In addition to releasing their first full-length in 12 years, After The Earthquake, this month via Topshelf Records, the band will made appearances Fun Fun Fun Fest and will play a string of holiday shows with Brooklyn’s Field Mouse (listed below).
