The 1st single linked on the FB page isn't bad, namely the dreamy outro. I honestly don't even recall much about their last album from a couple of years ago, except not really getting all that into it. But perhaps this one will do more for me? The concept sounds interesting as well.
And I am up for hearing anything with Ty and John Myung regardless.
May 27th is the release date. And there are supposed to be some tour dates in fact, although the odds of a date coming to Minnesota are about as good as some of their music being played on 89.3 or 93X I suppose, lol.

MUSIC THEORIES RECORDINGS RELEASES THE FOURTH ALBUM ‘PROFIT’ OF ALL-STAR PROG ROCK BAND THE JELLY JAM ON MAY 27
Music Theories Recordings will release The Jelly Jam’s fourth full-length album Profit on May 27. The Jelly Jam is a three-piece rock band, consisting of Ty Tabor of King’s X on guitar, keyboards, and vocals; Rod Morgenstein of The Dixie Dregs and Winger on drums and keyboards; and John Myung of Dream Theater on bass, moog, and chapman stick.
What was a kind of outlet for creative surplus and started under the name Platypus a few years ago, has now established itself in the form a solid community. After the release of two records and after the leaving of keyboarder Derek Sherinian, the remaining Platypus protagonists Ty Tabor, John Myung and Rod Morgenstein sought new challenges under the banner of The Jelly Jam. In 2002 their self-named debut album came out; two years later, the successor 2 was delivered to the shops and in 2011 the band released their third album Shall We Descend.
Their upcoming album, Profit, will be the band’s first all-out concept album with the basic story written around the idea that we, the people of Earth have abused and exhausted the planet’s resources forcing mankind to either find a new home or face extinction.
