    Kick out the JJAMZ.

    LA supergroup JJAMZ are kicking off their summer by hitting the road as part of the Nylon Summer Music Tour supporting Neon Trees. The tour begins on July 9 in Philadelphia and will bring them through NYC, Nashville, Austin and back home to LA as they make their way across the country in support of their debut album, Suicide Pact, out July 10 via Dangerbird.

    You can download the track "Heartbeat" for free by going here. Diva Katy Perry has said it's her fave song of the summer already, via tweet.

    JJAMZ (pronounced juh-Jamz) are comprised of Jason Boesel (Rilo Kiley, Bright Eyes), James Valentine (Maroon 5), Alex Greenwald (Phantom Planet), Michael Runion (solo), and Z Berg (The Like) – in a musical story of best friends. Made up of five of music's most exciting trailblazers, the members of JJAMZ are important staples in the LA music scene and have put together a collective album which underscores their place as one of today's vital bands.
