  • Yay! enation are back in the studio to record a new album :-)

Over the last few years we have grown significantly as a band, learning more every day about who we are and what we have to say. Some of the songs that are your favorites have been ours as well, and over time the songs have grown with us.

We feel like we are still at the beginning of our journey as band, and for those of you who have already been with us, you have the opportunity to go on this journey with us. There is still a whole world of people who are yet to hear our songs, and we want to give you, and them the best possible representation of who we are.

We have decided to take the songs that have best defined us in the last two independent albums and put them together, adding to them, restructuring and re-recording them. Many of our songs are epic in their theme and scope, and we feel we have found more and more of their full potential through playing them live. We want to capture that and have them with us as we grow and expand. Having the songs upgraded with us is the best way to give them their full due, both for us creatively and for you guys too.

There will also be three completely new songs on the record – each of them we are really excited about. They seem to capture where we are right now playing to the max of who we are.

  • Regarding the rumor I posted in the March 16 news....unfortunately. it's not true.
    [Thanks Amber for the info!]
  • Great news btw about enation's updated song "Feel This" - it climbed to the number 16 spot on the iTunes rock charts!!!! Great work everyone :-)
  • Jonathan's new - still untitled - movie found a distributor who also set up a website with this info:

After getting out of a long relationship and returning to his hometown, Billy Klepack comes to realize there's something not quite right with his best friend, Stan. Seemingly emotionless and flatly unstable, something seems to have changed Stan at the very core. He has committed an unforgivable act that has caused an irreversible shift inside him. Billy notices this immediately and digs deep into Stan's recent activities, uncovering what he has done and deeply embedding himself in the whole situation. As things progress, Billy comes to find that Stan's actions will affect him on a painfully permanent level.

  • Another short blib about enation's song in tonight's One Tree Hill season 5 finale:

    Enation’s music will be heard by millions tonight when Bethany Joy Galeotti, an actress on the CW Television Network series “One Tree Hill,” closes the season finale by singing the Battle Ground band’s “Feel This.”

    The song is from Enation’s “Identity Theft” album. Since the exposure on “One Tree Hill” is likely to stir up interest in Enation, the band is making the single available on iTunes immediately after the show airs.

    There’s a family connection between the actress and the band. Galeotti is married to Michael Galeotti, keyboardist for Enation. But the band also has its own collection of celebrities.

    Among Enation’s members are brothers Richard and Jonathan Jackson, who have active acting careers. Jonathan Jackson, who starred in the movies “Insomnia” and “Tuck Everlasting,” was in Virginia last week working on the independent film “Fistpie.”

  • There have been some tiny news regarding Jonathan's new movie.
    Someone blogged about the filming:

    They are filming a movie in Fairfax. I’m not really sure who “they” are—but we were assured that it is a “real” film for the theaters and not a George Mason University project of some kind. It is all very hush-hush; no one would tell us what the movie was about even when Aneliz turned up the sugar and worked a poor geeky set-hand like he was Father Christmas.

    They did let us wander the blocked-off set (Main Street, North Streets, and University Drive) and ogle at the vans, light fixtures, giant screens, and bagel trays. We were ready to give up on the mystery when we located a chatty young security guard who gave us the following information: it is a Hollywood based film group, the movie is an untitled thriller-drama, some dude from General Hospital is in it, and one of the lines in the script is “Go back to Manassas, you dirty whore!”

    Really, who needs more information than that?

  • And here is a very short article about the director and the movie, with a little shout-out to Jonathan
  • Great news about enation as well! First of all, their song "Feel this" will be featured in the season finale of One Tree Hill tomorrow!!!! As we all know, keyboardist Michael Galeotti's wife Bethany plays one of the leads in the series and she will perform the song onscreen (with enation as back up, though probably not onscreen...)!!! The new song will also be available for download and to buy on CDBABY after the show airs!
  • The other news is that enation will again perform live at the Whisky-A-Go-Go on May 31 at 11 pm!!! Hope you guys can be there and enjoy enation live!!!! Check enation's homepage for more information!

Happy 26th Birthday Jonathan!!!!!

4 may 2008

  • According to the IMDb, Jonathan landed a new movie, the Untitled James Hausler Project! It started shooting April 27 in and around Washington, DC. - he plays Stanley Keller, the best friend of Billy [who will be played by Nick Stahl]. The premise of this thriller reads as follows: "After a recent breakup, Billy returns to his hometown to find something is not quite right with his best friend."

    Check also the MySpace site of the project for current updates!

  • Here are some scans to the SID article about the latest concert gig which was attended by former TV dad Tony Geary as well as others - page 1, page 2

  • Josh Friedman, producer of the Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles TV series, gave an interview and also talked about Jonathan as Kyle Reese:

    IGN TV: It seemed by casting Jonathan Jackson as Kyle Reese that we might see him again. I mean, he is "Tuck Everlasting" after all. How many episodes are you planning to do that involve that future?

    Friedman: I don't know how many. That episode was "The Future Episode" and we knew we had all this stuff to do. And other times we'll just be doing little flashes and we won't be doing the whole thing. A little bunker here, some night time here, and it's less of a commitment. I love him and I think he did a really good job. It was one of the last things I did before I went on strike. It was a day or two before we went on strike that I cast him. It was very nerve-wracking because I knew we needed someone special for the part and I was leaving in a couple of days. Casting is a bit like looking for your car keys. They're lost, they're lost, they're lost and "Oh, there they are!" It's almost a binary state. Sometimes you might have three or four great ones when you're trying to figure out your own take on the character, but most times it just presents itself to you. The cast we have, the person we have was absolutely the person I wanted and it was very obvious to me that that's who it would be.

20 april 2008

Not really news per se, but Jonathan has been mentioned in the press / web universe and then there are some news which might concern him later on:
  • Blogger Angeleno has posted pictures from the CUT!2008 event which Jonathan attended with his band mates (and apparently enation also played the MINT VIP Party!)
  • Another blog - this time General Hospital Fans - had someone report from the concert at the Whisky-a-Go-Go on April 4 - click this link to read a recap and to also find out who attended the concert! [Minor Spoiler Alert for GH!]
  • The soap magazine ABC Soaps in Depth has asked current and former GH actors about their most memorable moment on the soap - due to the 45th anniversary of GH - here is Jonathan's reply:

    "My most memorable moment on GH was meeting [my wife] Lisa. Second to that was watching Tony do a three page monologue and just getting to listen and receive. Genie's laughter at some of the spontaneous moments that would happen. There are too many to count but those are the first ones to stand out."
    [source: ABC Soaps in Depth, current issue]

  • The website TVSquad has posted a list of "Ten actors who helped make General Hospital shine" - and guess what? Jonathan is on it! 

    "Like Amber Tamblyn, Jonathan Jackson grew up before our eyes on General Hospital. Unlike Amber, though, Jonathan came onto the show with huge expectations thrust upon him. He was Luke and Laura's son, Lucas Lorenz Spencer, Jr. -- Lucky. He had to be up to speed in scene with Genie Francis and Anthony Geary, a wise beyond his years ten year-old who knew how to get cross-country on his own when he parents were being pursued by mob king Frank Smith. Jonathan was perfect right out of the gate; he looked, sounded and acted like he'd be Luke's kid. He was sensitive like Laura, too, not just a smart ass kid. In six years on the show, Jonathan made Lucky his own. He won three Daytime Emmys for his performances as Lucky, and he's still the real Lucky to many people, even though two other actors have subsequently played the part.
    [source: TV Squad]

  • The slightly OT news is in regards to the TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles where Jonathan guest-starred on recently: The series has been RENEWED! Which means, since Jonathan has already commented on this, that there is a distinct possibility of Jonathan returning! Yay :-)

10 april 2008

  • Someone posted pictures from the CUT!2008 convention here it features Jonathan and the rest of the guys from enation
  • A little off-topic but Jacquelyn Mitchard, author of Deep End of the Ocean, is currently writing a sequel called Starry Night - this is what it will be about:

    It's the story of Vincent, the eldest son, who films a documentary thirteen years after his brother's abduction that forces the Cappadoras to face who they are behind their lovely facade and of how Ben, the son kidnapped in the first novel, must find his lost mother, Beth, as she once found him.

    So who is waiting for the movie sequel? ;-)

Sorry for the delay in bringing you news...I was mostly either on vacation or on business trips. And I'm currently living at my parents' home since I'm cat-sitting...anyway. 
  • Apparently, Jonathan and Lisa are expecting their third (!) child!!! The new baby would join almost 5-year-old Caleb and 3 1/2 year-old Adora. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! If true :-) 
    [source: Celebrity Baby Blog]

  • Jonathan also hopes (as do I btw) that Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles gets a second season since it would mean he gets to stay as a recurring character!!!

    Just like Arnold Schwarzenegger's character in the original "Terminator" movies, Battle Ground actor Jonathan Jackson hopes to say "I'll be back" - for more shows, that is. Jackson had a featured role in an episode of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" that aired two weeks ago on Fox. It was the season finale, but Jackson said he expects to be called back to the set if Fox renews the series.

    He signed a contract for the recurring role of Kyle Reese, the father of John Connor, the young hero in the movie series.

Michael grew up in Clark County and graduated from Battle Ground High School. He met Bethany Joy in Los Angeles through friends, Richard Lee Jackson and Jonathan Jackson. Michael and the Jackson brothers are members of the band Enation. [...]"
