JOLIETTE will be touring Mexico with Canadian act LIFE IN VACUUM in April, but before that, they will head over to Irapuato, Mexico for a show with SAY OCEAN. European fans will have a great chance to catch them live on their lengthy tour in June, July, and August (including confirmed festivals: Fluff Fest, CMAR, Jena Open Air, DOWNPOUR fanzine Fest in Germany, Swampfestas in Lithuania, Sick As We Are Fest in Croatia, AfterFLuff, FFUD festival in Slovakia) with a number of great bands like CASSUS, RUTKA LASKIER, CARNERO (see our interview HERE), JUNE PAIK, and many many more. Furthermore, JOLIETTE are putting together an end-of-the-year Mexican tour with Spanish screamy post hardcore punks VIVA BELGRADO!
joliette from Puebla, Mexico describe their music as “post-everything” with intricate compositions that bring together influences from post-hardcore, metal, math rock, and other subgenres of punk, in a way that balances fierceness with delicacy.
The commitment towards the band is reflected on both their relentless touring schedule and their hectic and passionate live show.
The touch of their native tongue into songs is a big part of joliette expression. The band is honored to be a part of Latin American culture that still can get out in the world and show the passion of playing. joliette is not a political band but they are all about being treated equally no matter what race you are from.
