++++++ ALBUM AND SINGLE NEWS! AND TOURING AS WELL! JOY! ++++++
We’re absolutely delighted to announce the release of our second album, CollectiV, a spring tour in support of it and new single, Sex Robot.
Released on 08 March 2019 on Ma§onic Records via Cargo, CollectiV is a veritable sonic feast. Made from only the finest ingredients including rock’n’roll, chain gang chants, mutant soul and gospel, as well as the band’s own heavy lounge, this is the best release yet from Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind.
Collectiv will be preceded by Sex Robot on 22 February.
Giving weight to the album’s name is a stellar cast of guest musicians. These include guitarist Little Barrie, soul singer SISTER COOKIE, The Urban Voodoo Machine’s Paul-Ronney Angel, The Future Shape Of Sound’s Stuart Dace and opera singer Vesna Petresin. CollectiV also finds Jim Jones re-uniting with guitarist Ray ‘Sonic’ Hanson’s Whores Of Babylon and drummer Phil Smith his comrades from Thee Hypnotics, for the first time in over 20 years.
Joining the band in spirit is The Rolling Stones’ Keith Richards, whose 1964 Gibson Hummingbird – the very guitar on which ‘Street Fighting Man’ and other classics were written and recorded – made its way into Jim Jones’ hands and within the grooves contained on CollectiV.
