  • Louder Than Long Beach, Part Deux

    Greetings SJ fans,

    Coming up in just 2 short weeks is the second installment of Louder Than Long Beach!  For those not in the know, LTLB is our all day, all ages art and music festival in Downtown Long Beach CA.  We have 8 bands set to take the stage, many local artists, poets, and vendors bringing you an experience that is uniquely Long Beach.  We can't wait to see you all there!  Did we mention, it's free!  Saturday, November 15, 2-10pm, at the Bungelow Building, 7th and Pine.

    We are also happy to annouce that we'll be playing The Doll Hut in Anaheim this coming Friday, Nov 7, with our friends Popsical (another LTLB band!) and Boston's InAeona.  Get there early, the Jets are playing at 8pm.

    Finally, if you haven't already checked out our new album Liquor Store, be sure you click through to our online store to checkout why critics are saying it's "some of the finest alt-rock of the twenty-first century" and that it "re-introduces some much needed adventure into punk rock." Rad!

    Keep supporting your local music scene... we'll see you soon!

  • Liquor Store Album -- Out Now!

    The reviews are in, the party is just beginning! 

    Now it's time for you to hear what the hype is about... get our second long playing album Liquor Store, available now!  

    "Music for maniacs. Sterile Jet's blend of stoner groove and harsh noise re-introduces some much needed adventure into punk rock."  ~ J. Simpson, TheDrainage.net

    "As if finding a moment of clarity from deep within an alcoholic haze, the band channel their collective energies to distill some of the finest alt-rock of the twenty-first century." ~ Leks Maltby, Aside/Beside

    "This Long Beach, California-based trio plays loud, harsh, noisy underground rock music like the world will soon be coming to an end. And man oh man is that a refreshing change from so many up-and-coming artists who are playing it waaaaaaaaay too safe in the twenty-first century." ~ babysue.com

    "Although parts of it really test my patience, it's an oddly compelling listen from an eccentric band." ~ Dr. Abner Mality, WormwoodChronicles.net

  • ...To The Bars, our new single and video... out now!

    Today, we release the new single and video from our upcoming album, Liquor Store... available 10/21 from Yesca Rock.  We hope you enjoy!

    From UK Music Blog Backseat Mafia

    "Long Beach three piece Sterile Jets have given us the premiere of their new video for ‘…To The Bars’, the first single from their upcoming album Liquor Store, out on October 21st via Yesca Rock. The track is DIY punk pop at its finest (and most messy) opening with this drum loop before this murderous bassline comes in, all white noise and envy, while the guitar plays this angular riff over the top. Frontman B.ILL barks out his philosophy with venom and anger, that philosophy being that your woes are soon lessened by visits..to the bar, while underneath there’s this sort of frayed edge to everything caused by guitar effects and crashing cymbals that blur the edges of everything. It’s quite something. Pick it up on a free download, here"
