Hailing from Marlton, New Jersey, indie rock band Dryjacket draw on emo, punk-pop, and math rock with less weighty results.
Formed in 2014 by lead singer/guitarist Joe Junod, who had some songs in hand, guitarists Brad Wyllner and Ian Foley, and drummer Adam Cerdan, the band made an impression quickly. After some rehearsing and a few house shows, they opened multiple shows for Somos
, and were contacted by Hopeless Records
within months of forming. The label released the quartet's debut EP, Lights, Locks, & Faucets, in 2015. The band did a short headlining tour of the Great Lakes region in early 2016 before hitting the road in support of Yellowcard
. Dryjacket's first full-length album, For Posterity, arrived in January 2017. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
