Carl Barât and The Jackals
Carl Barât is the frontman of indie rock band, Carl Barât & The Jackals. The four-piece made up of; Carl Barât, Billy Tessio, Adam Claxton and Jay Bone were formed through a series of traditional auditions advertised only on social media, which lead to a response of over 1000 applications. The masses of applications were whittled down to 90 face-to-face auditions at a London pub, which then resulted in the creation of Carl Barât & The Jackals.
Currently signed to Cooking Vinyl in the UK and Grand Jury in the US, since their formation in February 2014, the band has made quite the name for themselves. The Jackals have been on an intimate tour of the UK, played an XFM Live Session, appeared on Soccer AM, released a video for their debut single ‘Glory Days’ and released their debut album ‘Let It Reign’ produced by Joby J Ford.
