Illy

Following the release of his new single, Swear Jar, Illy is set to the hit the road in February and March for The Swear Jar Tour, stopping by The Triffid on Friday 26 February.

Swear Jar is the first new music from Illy since the release of his 2013 gold-accredited album, Cinematic. Produced by Rahki (Kendrick Lamar, Talib Kweli), the tongue-in-cheek song was written in response to people being dicks online. It’s a fun way of telling everyone to chill the f*ck out.

‘Swear Jar is a light-hearted take on two very serious issues: that rare breed of dickhead artist who thinks they’re God’s gift to the world, and the far more common breed of dickhead that you find dwelling online, hurling abuse at others. They both suck. I wanted to write a song for them, and here it is. I hope they don’t like it,’ Illy said.

In conjunction with beyondblue, Illy has also created his own virtual swear jar, inviting friends and fans to donate money each time they swear. Beyondblue works to improve the lives of individuals, families and communities affected by depression, anxiety and suicide including cyber bullying.

$5 has been donated to the swear jar after the completion of this f*cking media release. Make that $6.
