Jobber Release New Song ‘Summerslam’

    Jobber have dropped a new single called ‘Summerslam’. Out now via Exploding in Sound, the track arrives just days before its wrestling event namesake. Check it out below.

    “‘Summerslam’ is the first Jobber song that really resembles the heavy rock I used to hear growing up when WWF was at its peak,” vocalist/guitarist Kate Meizner explained in a statement. “I wrote the Helmet-inspired bass line and main riff a while ago, not sure if it would see the light of day; it didn’t seem to fit with the other Jobber songs at the time. After I showed it to Mike, he made a demo with a couple more parts completed that brought the song to life. We ended up co-writing the rest, focusing on making it catchy but also heavy with some over-the-top excess, like something from a WWF-era Summerslam commercial or in the background of WCW Beach Brawl ‘99. Thematically the song is about people who enter positions of political power and become jaded, going through motions only to lose touch with how their actions impact real human lives.”

    Last year, Jobber released their debut EP, Hell in a Cell, which made our best EPs of 2022 list.
