Playing in a band can be a full time job, but the origin of post-hardcore quintet Jack the Envious combined music and national service. In 2012, vocalist Nir Perlman and guitarists Guy Avnon and Shalev Grados formed the band in high school, later being joined by bassist Guy Chekarov during military service. Throughout the time period of their formation to 2014, the band juggled songwriting, relentless touring and military careers.
February 2016 saw the release of the band’s first independent EP Pull You Down which features six original tracks, an acoustic version of More To Life and an excellent cover of Gorillaz‘s Feel Good Inc.
