Four tracks have been released from Volcano to date, Back On 74, I’ve Been In Love (ft. Channel Tres), Dominoes and Candle Flame (ft. Erick The Architect), all of which received widespread support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Radio 2 and Apple Music 1.

Anticipation for the Volcano album was recently heightened with the news that the full-length film, Volcano, The Motion Picture will premiere exclusively on the Jungle fanclub from 11 August.

The Australia and New Zealand tour will follow Jungle performing to a total of more than 190,000 people across their 2023 tour, which starts with a landmark London festival headline set at All Points East on 26 August. They will then take their euphoric, full-live band show across America and Europe on a tour that includes numerous arena dates.

Jungle are lifelong friends from Shepherd’s Bush, London. Their self-titled breakthrough debut album became an instant classic, leading to a Mercury Prize nomination, which they followed with the album For Ever before amplifying their success with Loving In Stereo – all contributing to a total of over a billion streams to date. Their extended live band has made them firm festival favourites, headlining Wilderness and South Facing as well as drawing huge crowds as far afield as Coachella and Lollapalooza Brazil, while headline shows have included Alexandra Palace and multiple nights at the O2 Academy Brixton. Their visionary stylised and choreographed videos are also a major aspect of Jungle’s artistic identity, most notably with the ambitious visual narrative that spanned every track on Loving In Stereo.

Tickets for the tour will be on sale at 12pm on Friday 11 August. For all ticket and tour information, head here.
