Hailing from Dublin,
Ireland, Jape began as the solo moniker of Richie Egan – formerly of Redneck
Manifesto – and has evolved into one of the most exciting live acts in Europe.

The band broke into
global consciousness in 2008 when The Raconteurs’ Brendan Benson encountered
Jape’s track “Floating” while on a trip to Ireland. Benson loved it so much he
would soon begin incorporating a cover of it into live sets. Jape found
themselves supporting the Jack White-fronted supergroup on stages around the
world, and having their track reinterpreted by the likes of Soulwax.

Jape’s regard within
Ireland has reached levels unprecedented by musical peers, becoming the first
act ever to win the regarded Choice Music Prize for Best Irish Album twice:
first for 2008’s ‘Ritual’ and in 2012 for ‘Ocean Of Frequency’. The award has
long been regarded as a launching pad for Ireland’s finest, with previous
winners including Two Door Cinema Club and Villagers.

Inspired by the desire
to return to the form of classic songs, layered with kaleidoscopic oddness,
Irish artist Jape releases their sixth album Endless Thread on Faction
September 2023.

Richard Egan produced
and recorded the album at RARN studio using a unique collection of ribbon
microphones, tape machines and tube outboard equipment. The album was mixed by
David Odlum (Sam Smith, Lisa O’ Neill ) and mastered by Seán Mac Erlaine. The
artwork was assembled by M&E Sweden.

Endless Thread is released on Faction Records Friday
29th. September 2023. ‘Heal These Wounds’ is out now.
