Levolution, the US debut album from melodic rockers Juke Kartel, hits stores today. The album was a true labor of love by the band, who have played together since 2006 and recently made a move from Australia to the States. Lead singer Toby Rand said in a recent interview that Levolution is a story of the journey of the band, whom he describes as “big, powerful, and guitar-driven, with stadium sonic sound.” Single “If Only” proves this point, uniting the band’s gift for melody with heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Check out the listening party above to preview the album, which is now available for download on iTunes.

We got our first taste of Juke Kartel when their frontman Toby Rand participated in “Rockstar: Supernova”.  After the show he returned to Australia to reunite with his band Juke Kartel.

Fast forward to the present and the band is about to release their album Levolution on Carved Records on September 28th.  Levolution finds musical symmetry in its strong hooks, multi-textured instrumentals and passionate vocals. And as the album is more than just your typical rock record, Juke Kartel is not just a rock band: “We’re more than just band-mates; we’re a family that chose each other.”
