Jade Hairpins
return with their first shows ever in the UK
and identities!

Back in 2018, Jade Hairpins emerged mysteriously like a pair of cranes from a tall grove, shared their immediately danceable debut 12-inch single “Mother Man” b/w “Gracefully,” on Merge Records and just as quickly receded back into the shade.
 
Turns out, Jade Hairpins is the brainchild of Jonah Falco and Mike Haliechuk of Fucked Up infamy. Together, they will present the debut live performances of Jade Hairpins this month in the UK, promising more shows and music to come in 2020. For these shows, the live band will be rounded out by Tamsin M Leach and Jack Goldstein; a full list of UK dates can be found below.
 
The clues were there all along: Fucked Up released the “High Rise” 7-inch ahead of Dose Your Dreams, backed by the B-side “Tower on Time,” a song credited to Jade Hairpins. And if you comb through the unsung lyrics of Dose Your Dreams’ “Accelerate,” you’ll find the line “Her hair was pinned by jade.”
 
What does all of this mean? We’re not quite sure either, but please go see them and report back!  Also, stay in the know by following Jade Hairpins on Instagram and Facebook, and pick up the “Mother Man” b/w “Gracefully” 12-inch in the Merge store.
