In the summer of 2010, North Carolina rock and roll outfit JONAS SEES IN COLOR found themselves spinning through the air. It was the last week of a relentless two year touring schedule in support of their debut album; the van landed upside down, a contortion of metal and showering glass. The band crawled out through the windshield, refused to leave the tour to seek medical attention, and climbed into the back of a box truck with the remains of their instruments. They finished the tour bruised and bloody, laying down in the pitch black heat for hours on end. They had long claimed willingness to die for their music, now they were faced with a new challenge: to live for it.
JSIC returned to the eclectic south, homeless and hungry to create something new. They renovated a 1960’s schoolbus, moved in, and began writing a much-awaited second album. Emerging a few months later with a fresh batch of authentic, fiery rock tunes; the band relocated to Music Mania, a small, log-cabin studio in the Carolina woods. The resulting album, “HARVEST” (named after the intense whisper-to-howl two-part-movement that concludes the album), is a collection of experiences, thoughts, and stories; as startlingly honest as it is brashly poignant; it is the sound of a band who has found new color in the world.
