Glass Animals team up with Jackpot Peanut Butter to support Music Venue Trust.

Glass Animals have teamed up with Jackpot Peanut Butter to support grassroots music venues with a new limited-edition reusable and refillable pot designed by the band, which is currently on pre-order for fans, and will be available to the general public from June 9th - exactly seven years since the release of Glass Animals’ debut album 'Zaba'.

About the collaboration, Glass Animals frontman Dave Bayley says: "I’ve been eating jackpot peanut butter for years. There’s a jackpot stall in a market next to my house in Hackney, and I loved the look of the packaging to be honest…plus it had a quote from Gremlins on. So I picked up a tub. It was delicious. And that’s when I started reading the small print on the back. Each sale includes a donation to Music Venue Trust, the charity which looks after grassroots music venues….i.e. the venues that gave us a shot in the early days when we had no idea what we were doing...the venues that need help to survive but do an extraordinary amount for music culture. And then I read further and saw that the tub can be brought back and refilled!!! It wasn’t another single-use piece of plastic that was going to go sit in a landfill. So I refilled. And refilled. And eventually cut to three years, many refills, and 1,293 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches later, we turned up at our rehearsal space, and there sat four tubs of jackpot peanut butter with our names printed on and a small note saying to get in touch. We got in touch. And this is the result. Glass Animals x Jackpot Peanut Butter."

Jackpot has been supporting Music Venue Trust since 2017 and this is their first artist collaboration to mobilise support and funds for grassroots music venues. This partnership will help raise funds and support for grassroots music venues at a time of need for music, culture, artists and their teams, and crew. The collaboration, which comprises a limited-edition pot and exclusive sweatshirt, will be available on June 9th.

Designed by Glass Animals, £2 from the sale of each reusable pot will go to Music Venue Trust, the charity that represents over 900 UK grassroots music venues.
