Jetplane Landing are from Derry, Northern Ireland. The band was formed in 1999 by Andrew Ferris (guitar/vocals) and Jamie Burchell (bass); later joined by lead guitarist, Cahir O’Doherty (Fighting With Wire).
Drawing inspiration from ‘80s hardcore and associated with the British Post-Hardcore movement (see Hundred Reasons, Biffy Clyro, Million Dead, Reuben and Hell Is For Heroes) they released their debut album, 'Zero for Conduct' in 2001 and followed it up with 'Once Like a Spark' in 2003.
Regarded as a scene-defining record, ‘Once Like A Spark’ propelled the band onto even larger stages and deeper into the hearts of fans of mathy, cerebral punk rock. The band's third album, 'Backlash Cop' , incorporated funk and hip hop elements, inviting comparisons to political torch-bearers Rage Against the Machine.
The band took a break from playing live in 2007 and return to public view six years later with this new record 'Don't Try' and new drummer Craig McKean (Fighting With Wire). A taut, visceral art-rock affair 'Don't Try' draws easiest comparison to the bands work on fan-favourite EP 'Els Quatre Gats'  however offers elements from the band's entire recorded output so far.
