Now Jackson + Enation have announced they are in the recording studio with Grammy-nominated Greg Archilla, at work on the EP Blame-Shifter. Blame-Shifter will contain six tracks, including a cover of "Unchained Melody" that they performed at the Grand Ole Opry. It will also be released on Jackson's own personal label, Hilasterion Records, on May 13, 2016. This was part of the band's desire to become more independent and connect with their fans. The band also ran a Pledgemusic pre-order campaign catering to their fans through April 6, where fans could have access to autographed merchandise, meet-and-greet opportunities, and even a chance at an executive producer credit on the record.
Jackson + Enation is Jonthan Jackson (vocals, guitar), Richard Lee Jackson (drums), and Daniel Sweatt (bass). Jackson has been in the midst of solo tour dates, but soon tour dates with Jackson + Enation will begin, and they are listed here.
