After discovering that their most recent album, No Nations, had leaked onto certain file-sharing websites, lead singer Adam Kittredge responded in a positive way, saying, “We aren’t that concerned about it, because at our level, it’s kind of actually flattering to think that people think it’s worthwhile to so-called ‘steal’ our record before it’s released. It really doesn’t matter to us at this level of the game and maybe it won’t ever – maybe it shouldn’t.”
The band has not repeated its original voluntary purchase model for the 2009 release of No Nations. However elements of the album have been made available through the band’s website under a Creative Commons license.
Jets Overhead’s first proper release was their self-titled debut EP, Jets Overhead in 2003, with ex-drummer Brendan Pye. He was replaced by Luke Renshaw. The band then followed their EP with the band’s first full studio album, the critically-acclaimed Bridges, in 2006. Jets Overhead’s first release charted at a respectable #42 on the CMJ music chart in the United States, making a considerable mark for their first release. Also, Bridges received generally favourable reviews, and eventually led to the band receiving their first Juno nomination for ‘New Group of the Year’ in 2007.
In 2007, the group digitally released a compilation album named Lost Melodies, which featured demos of four tracks from the first LP, remixes of two tracks from their debut EP and two previously unreleased b-sides. On June 2, 2009 the band’s second full-length album, No Nations, was released on the Microgroove label. Both ‘Bridges’ and ‘No Nations’ were produced by lead singer Neil Osborne, from Canadian rock group 54-40. No Nations was mixed by Malcolm Burn, noted for mixing Bob Dylan albums.
