Jack & Jack with Olivia O’Brien
Pop duo Jack & Jack announce their new single “Beg,” out on September 22nd via Island Records. The song was written by hit singer songwriter Lauv, whose current songwriting credits include smash hit singles “Boys” by Charli XCX and “No Promises” by Cheat Codes featuring Demi Lovato.
In addition to the announcement of their new single, Jack & Jack also reveal dates for their headlining tour across the US that will hit 31 cities this fall that will see pop singer Olivia O’Brien and boy band PRETTYMUCH open on select dates. The run will kick off on October 23rd in Fort Lauderdale, FL and will wrap on December 11th in Los Angeles, CA. Tickets go on sale Thursday, September 21st at 10AM local time. There will also be a VIP Ticketless Upgrades available that will include a meet & greet and photo with Jack & Jack, green screen music video experience, early entry, a signed lithograph and more.
The announcement of their single and tour follows the release of the duo’s debut Island Records EP GONE that hit the Top 10 iTunes Pop Chart in over 15 territories. The ‘two-of-a-kind’ duo – Jack Johnson and Jack Gilinsky – describe GONE as a ‘concept EP’ that explores the downfall of a relationship. “Which is 99% of most relationships,” affirms Gilinsky. “The lyrics and the videos convey the story. The first few tracks are about infatuation and falling for a girl. The later tracks are all about the breakup. It’s going to make our fans feel a specific way. If you’re in love or you’re dealing with heart¬break, there’s a song for you. We’ve been through all of that. It came from a real place.”
Jack & Jack’s indie EP Calibraska (whose title fuses their native Nebraska and their current home base of Los Angeles) became something of an under-the-radar phenomenon in 2015. It crashed multiple charts, landing at #1 on iTunes Overall Top Albums chart, #3 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart, and #12 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Their 11 singles have netted over 2 million collective sales and over 100 million music streams.
