Soon after signing to Velvet Moron, Jester were added to the bill on the 2FM stage at the famed Electric Picnic after taking part in The King Kong Club Battle Of The Bands at the East Side Tavern in Dublin.

Closer to home the group were also added to the bill at Féile Classical, as well as headlining a number of shows themselves throughout Ireland and supporting acts including The Stunning and Britpop legends Cast.

Velvet Moron Records will release Jester's debut album Shadows Need A Light on March 15, 2019.

The new album launch will be supported by a nationwide tour including dates in Whelan’s Dublin, March 15, The Source Thurles March 16, De Barra’s Clonakilty March 22 and Crane Lane Theatre Cork, March 24.
