Jersey started out being a side project of the highly influential Grade. At first, both bands were the same priority, but with the heavy touring schedule of Grade, it became to much for both bands. Grade suddenly became highly popular (scoring a buzz worthy song on MTV) and the high demand for everything Grade became too much. Greg Taylor decided to leave the band and in turn focus 100% on Jersey despite all the success that Grade had endured. Sean McNabb later replaced Greg in Grade, but for a surprising twist, Sean left shortly after and joined up with Jersey! There were also many shakeups in the band that I'm not going to get into after Jersey released their Fueled By Ramen debut, "The Battle Has Just Begun".
Jersey went out to tour with such bands like AAA, Ensign, Dillinger Four, Less Than Jake, and many other bands. So here we are, Jersey has just released a new EP called "Definition". The sound that band has on "Definition is more rough than previous works like "The Battle Has Begun". The band has changed there sound naturally because of the addition of new members.
With Influences stretching from Avail to Ann Beretta, Jersey isn't your usually run of the mill punk bands. The band even has a cover here of Dag Nasty's "Down Time' which rocks pretty hard and is a well done cover if I may say so. I think it will be interesting to see what the next Jersey full length will sound like, but "Definition" gives you a good idea of whats to come.
