`Jets to Brazil` - American rock band, formed in 1997. Its founder was Blake Schwarzenbach (Blake Schwarzenbach), the former frontman of the punk band `Jawbreaker`.
When Blake moved to Brooklyn, New York (Brooklyn, New York) after the collapse of `Jawbreaker`, he teamed up with his friend ,bassist Jeremy Shatlenom (Jeremy Chatelain), and they began to work on the recording of four tracks using drum machines. It was not until as long as the former drummer of the band `Texas Is the Reason` Chris Daly (Chris Daly) did not join the group. That Daly came up with the name `Jets to Brazil`,and in 1997 the band signed with the label `Jade Tree Records`. It is said by the participants, the band`s name is derived from the poster to the melodrama ` Breakfast at Tiffani` (Breakfast at Tiffany`s), the film, which they all loved.
The group`s debut album, `Orange Rhyming Dictionary`, was released ` Jade Tree Records` in 1998. It consisted of 11 tracks and was recorded at the studio `Easley McCain Recording` in Memphis, Tennessee (Memphis, Tennessee). The name of the album, which literally translates to English as ` rhyming dictionary to the word ` oranzhevyy`` was a kind of joke - the fact that English is not a rhyme to the word ` orange`.By the release of the album it coincided with a big tour in support of it, joined by several groups, among them - `The Promise Ring`. On the wave of success ` Orange alboma` has become very popular and the next album `Jets to Brazil`,` Four Cornered Night`, consisting of 13 songs and released in 2000. Above the second album worked as a new guitarist, Brian Marjan (Brian Maryansky), who previously worked in `The Van Pelt` group. This change in structure has allowed Blake Schwarzenbach take the place of a keyboard. In 2002, the `Jets to Brazil` announced the release of its third and, as it turned out, the last album ` Perfecting Loneliness`.By the fall of 2003, the band broke up for unknown reasons. The final album is considered the best work of the `Jets to Brazil`.
Blake is currently teaching English at Hunter College (Hunter College) in New York and is working on a PhD in English Literature. In October 2008, Blake started a new band ,`The Thorns of Life`. Chris Daly returned to the `Texas Is The Reason` for two concerts in ` Irving Plaza` in New York in November 2006, but without any real plans of reunification in the future. Chatelain has worked with several bands before he began a solo project with the same label `Jade Tree Records`.
