Andrew Jackson Jihad is an American folk-punk and indie-rock band, they formed in 2004 around permanent members Sean Bonnette and Ben Gallaty, and hail from Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.
Originally comprised of acoustic guitarist Sean Bonnette, upright bass player Ben Gallaty, and drummer Justin James, Andrew Jackson Jihad has since undergone a number of personnel changes with Sean and Ben at the core. The band’s debut release arrived in 2005 with the album “Candy Cigarettes & Cap Guns”, which introduced the band’s notable acoustic instrumentation combined with with punk vocal delivery.
After releasing the EP “Issue Problems” and performing as a part of the New Times Music Showcase in 2006, the Andrew Jackson Jihads issued a split release with Ghost Mice in 2007. The band subsequently signed with Asian Man Records who released the Jihad’s sophomore full-length “People That Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World” in 2007. The album raised the Jihad’s profile further and highlighted the often tongue-in-cheek lyricism covering topics including childhood addiction, poverty, existentialism, and religion.
Following the release of the EPs “Only God Can Judge Me” in 2008 and “Operation Stackola” in 2009, Andrew Jackson Jihad issued their third studio album “Can’t Maintain” in 2009, with a supporting tour of the U.S. and Europe. The Jihad’s fourth full-length “Knife Man” arrived in 2011 and was supported with a full U.S. tour alongside Frank Turner. The band expanded in 2012 with the addition of guitar and keyboard player Preston Bryan and drummer Deacon Batchelor. The live album “Live at the Crescent Ballroom” was released in 2013, and after signing with Side One Dummy Records, the band released the album “Christmas Island” in 2014.
