JYROJETS are one of the most heavily tipped bands around, with shed-loads of great press. The Sun named them as one of the seven hottest up- and- coming bands of 2007, and ran a full page story about their US tour. The bad lads’ anthem ‘Favourite Thing About Jane’ / ‘I Don’t Think You Hurt’ was released on 14 May on CD single, 7” vinyl and download. X FM called it a ‘Britpop Anthem’, Jonathan Ross and Stephen Merchant are fans and the single was featured as a ‘Hottest download’ in The Sunday Times. The track also looks set to be featured in an ad campaign for a worldwide drinks brand. The San Francisco Chronicle called Jyrojets: “ the best kept secret at this year's South by Southwest’ after their shows in Texas in March. US station ME TV filmed a performance and it was broadcast throughout the SXSW festival. The band returned to the US in April for a 2 month BBC BritBus Tour, which took them coast to coast, from San Francisco to New York, in a red, double-decker London bus. The bus turned heads everywhere. The band have just returned from Moscow playing at the aftershow party of the Russian movie '20 Cigarettes' , which features 'Dead on Arrival' in the soundtrack and trailers
