‘When Jack White announced the many artists opening for him on his forthcoming tour today, the long list of supporting acts included one particularly exciting name: a reunited Be Your Own Pet. The Jemina Pearl–fronted Nashville punk band, notorious for putting on wild shows in the 2000s, broke up in 2008 after releasing two albums: a self-titled LP in 2006 and its 2008 follow-up Get Awkward. The band will perform on April 38 and 30 at his shows in Atlanta and their hometown of Nashville, respectively.’
‘Nashville indie-sleaze staples Be Your Own Pet only ever released two albums — 2006’s self-titled and 2008’s Get Awkward. After breaking up in 2008, band members Jemima Pearl, Jamin Orrall, Jonas Stein, and John Eatherly went on to various other projects (Jamin Orrall is one half of JEFF The Brotherhood, for example). Now, however, Be Your Own Pet are reuniting for a pair of shows opening for Jack White’s Supply Chain Issues Tour, their first performances together in 14 years.’
‘Be Your Own Pet have reformed for their first live performances since breaking up in 2008. The influential indie-garage band have reunited for North American support slots on Jack White’s freshly announced ‘The Supply Chain Issue Tour’.
‘Jack White’s Supply Chain Issues world tour will feature a dozen special guest openers across the scheduled 59-date international trek. Among them are punk outfit Be Your Own Pet, who will reunite after 14 years to perform two opening gigs.
Be Your Own Pet will take the stage for the first time since splitting in 2008, first in Atlanta for White’s third night at the Tabernacle on April 28 and again on April 30 to perform a hometown show in Nashville at the Ascend Amphitheater.’
