OZ FEST!

The Aussies team up for an extensive jaunt...

Jet have been confirmed as the support act on fellow countrymen Vines’ tour of North America in March.

The dates will kick off at Houston’s Engine Room on March 11 and wrap up 24 gigs later at the Vancouver Commodore Ballroom. Also featuring on the bill are another Australian band, The Living End and for the first two weeks of the jaunt, Neon.

According to Billboard, Jet‘s single ‘Are You Gonna Be My Girl?’ is currently at number four on their Modern Rock Tracks chart and at number nine on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles countdown.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Vines have confirmed that they will play London’s Electric Ballroom next month.

They will make their UK comeback on February 19 at the sold-out show, with support coming from London’s hotly-tipped newcomers The Duke Spirit.

The band’s follow-up album to their 2002 debut ‘Highly Evolved’ – ‘Winning Days’ – will be released on March 8, preceded by the highly charged first single ‘Ride’ on February 23.

Jet are to release their new single ‘Look What You’ve Done’ on March 8, following their sold-out NME Awards show at London’s Hammersmith Palais (February 13).
