Jared James Nichols releases new single and video for ‘Don’t You Try’

Following hot on the heels of 2015’s Jared James Nichol’s debut album, Old Glory and the Wild Revival, and the follow-up 2015 tour EP Highwayman, the Wisconsin-bred guitar gunslinger returns to Europe this month for a series of incendiary live concerts supporting Zakk Wylde in May and June, followed by an extensive October UK tour supporting legendary blues guitarist Walter Trout.

To coincide with Jared’s return to the European stage, Listenable Records will release the Highwayman EP as an exclusive limited edition orange coloured 10 inch vinyl (500 copies).

On June 3rd, Jared will digitally release a brand new single, Don’t You Try, accompanied by an official music video with a homage to the bikers of the 60s and 70s. “We’re really excited about the brand new kick-ass single,” says Jared. “I’m positive it’ll kick-start the shows into high gear.”

Written by Jared and producer/engineer Anthony Perry Jr., Don’t You Try was recorded at Swing House & Unison Music Group Studio’s in LA, and will appear on Jared’s next album in spring 2017. Watch the official video for Don’t You Try .

 

“The song’s about belief,” reflects Jared.  “It’s about what you’re told when you’re young and how it has an impression on you. How strong other people’s words can be. How there’s always something in the back of your mind, chasing you. At the end of the day, you have to believe in what you want.”

The official music video is a celebratory homage to bikers. But how did Jared come up with the idea?

Says Jared – “It sounds crazy, but the idea came up when I was drifting to sleep! I remember the dream so vividly, I was cruising in my old Ford when all of the sudden I was taken over by a biker gang.  We worked with L.A. Director Ben Strang and decided to make it a ‘homage” or “parody” if you will. It turned out funny as hell and undoubtedly a throwback to the classic exploitation Biker films of the late 60’s early 70’s. We plan on opening our European shows with the song.”
