Jets Overhead fills slot on Rock The Peach roster after Treble Charger cancelled

Treble Charger has cancelled their performance at Rock The Peach music festival held in Penticton at King's Park July 27-29.

Treble Charger has cancelled their performance at Rock The Peach music festival held in Penticton at King’s Park July 27-29.

“Due to logistical issues beyond their control, Treble Charger will not be able to appear at this year’s Rock The Peach Festival,” said an official announcement from Treble Charger management.

Organizers from iRock Entertainment, who have put together the three-day festival, said they have replaced the band with Jets Overhead who will be taking the 8 p.m. time slot on July 27 before headliner Collective Soul take the stage.

Jets Overhead was formed in 2003 and earned a Juno nomination in 2007 for New Group of The Year. The band also got early attention in 2006 by developing a voluntary download and purchase model off www.jetsoverhead.com, over a year before Radiohead eventually popularized the model.

Boredom and Joy is the new single and album, which follows up on the Victoria band’s success of 2009’s No Nations — an album that brought the band to new heights with major festival performances at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch and the World Expo in Shanghai.

Their latest album, Boredom and Joy, features the band’s trademark vocal and melodic interplay set against a lush backdrop of organic and sequenced instrumentation. Its lyrical themes explore an evolving relationship that moves quietly from certainty to uncertainty.

Jets Overhead have toured Canada, the U.S. and worldwide including shows with Broken Social Scene, The Stills, Sam Roberts, Our Lady Peace, The Dandy Warhols, 54-40 and more. Their music has been featured on major network television programs including Bones, House and Pretty Little Liars. The band’s previous single Heading For Nowhere, charted nationally at Canadian alternative radio.

Rock The Peach is featuring 16 bands over a span of three days including Three Dog Night, War, Sam Roberts Band, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, Walk Off The Earth, Glass Tiger, Jesse Cook, Ronnie Dunn and more.

Tickets for the music festival are available for purchase in person at the Penticton & Wine Country Visitor Centre and the Government Street Liquor Store. They can also be bought by calling 1-800-663-5052 or online at www.RockThePeach.ca and www.Ticketmaster.ca.
