FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

     AUCKLAND, New Zealand, March 25, 2007 -- Last night at Auckland’s Vector Arena, Melbourne pub band Juke Kartel wrapped up a 34-show world tour, supporting Tommy Lee’s reality-TV-spawned group Rock Star Supernova.  Juke Kartel scored the breakout opportunity with vocalist Toby Rand’s near-win on last summer’s reality-TV hit, “Rockstar: Supernova.”  Still on the RSS bill, but with his own hard-rocking Aussie band, Toby said, “Coming in third is the best thing that ever happened.”  

    Before Toby’s TV debut propelled them into the international spotlight, Juke Kartel was already causing a stir Downunder, opening for Nickelback, The Used, and Killswitch Engage.  After the mid-September TV finale, the balance of Juke Kartel made the trek from Melbourne to join their frontman in Los Angeles and have been working non-stop since.  

    Along with the RSS tour, they headlined an 18-city U.S./Canadian club tour, and with the help of producer Mark Weinberg and Pulse Studios, recorded their debut album for a spring 2007 release.  Four of their tracks are streaming on www.myspace.com/jukekartel, including the indelible “Throw It Away,” performed on the TV show, an acoustic version of the same, the sensuous “December,” and distinctly metal-edged “Save Me.”

    The charismatic Aussies have been amassing a following around the world with their pure hard rock sound, high-energy live shows, and genuine appreciation of their fans.

    “We’re actually anti-rock stars,” Toby said.  “Rock stars are untouchable, mysterious, hard for fans to get close to.  We walk out in the crowd, we’ll talk to every single person, we’ll sign whatever they want.  Get on our Myspace page, we reply to every single message personally.  We want to be approachable.”   They proved it on this tour, remaining hours after their performances to talk with fans, take pictures, and sign autographs.

    The band recently signed with international management company Sanctuary Group (Elton John, Tommy Lee) and will soon be deciding on a label for their upcoming album.    

    Juke Kartel is Toby Rand (vocals), Todd Burman (guitars), Dale Winters (guitars/vocals), Tommy Kende (bass/vocals), and Eddie Murphy (drums).  
The Rock Star Supernova tour was December 31, 2006 through March 24, 2007.
