Reflecting on the album, Nic Cester said, ‘Get Born was a rare and unique moment of total planetary alignment where we somehow managed to capture lighting in a bottle.’
Mark Wilson said ‘I don’t remember much about the actual day Get Born was released. I think we were in Pittsburgh. I’m sure we celebrated, but to be honest we celebrated every night back in those days. 2003 was one big blurry haze for me.’
Formed in Melbourne in the late 90’s, Jet released their first EP, the vinyl only Dirty Sweet in 2002. Get Born was released after their label deal with Elektra and was followed by the albums Shine On in 2006 and Shaka Rock in 2009.
Get Born scored six ARIA Awards and was certified 9 times platinum in Australia, making it one of the top 5 highest selling Australian rock albums of all time. The unparalleled success of Get Born at home was only one part of the story, as Jet topped both the US Modern Rock and Mainstream Rock charts and toured with the likes of the Rolling Stones, Oasis and Kings Of Leon, with eventual total worldwide sales in excess of 5 million albums.
After calling it a day in 2012, the band briefly reformed in 2017 to play with Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band on their sold-out Australian tour of that year. Following an overwhelming response to those shows, the band dipped their toe back in the live waters with a triumphant appearance at the legendary Fuji Rock festival in Japan and sold out shows at Sydney and Melbourne Zoos. The reaction from fans was enough to suggest that demand for the band was stronger than ever.
