1 day til Tour!!!
Here we are one day from the first show of the tour, packin up and stuff- The picture here is of the super cool shellshag posters made by Young Monster.
We have a limited amount of these and will have them for sale on tour. We will have our new record "rumors in disguise", that's on Don Giovanni Records, on vinyl and cd. We will have shirts with the Snakepit design on them. We will have our split 7" with This Bike is a Pipe Bomb. We will not have the repress of Destroy Me I'm Yours until the June tour, but we will have cdr's for the impatient. On this tour, while playing with a ton of our favorite bands and buying up great new records, we will be supporting migrant farm workers by performing and hanging at Harvest of Hope Fest in Florida-
We will be in Texas for the SXSW festival, but it does not support any cool agendas like HOH, it is a money makin machine that cant be stopped- we shall have fun there too. We will be playing 5 killer day parties and 1 SXSW showcase in 4 days, you can check out the specifics of this and all our tour at Shellshag's web page
We will also be spending a few days at Revolution Studios in Chatanooga finishing up "Fuck Society" volume 1, a covers record shellshag has been working on with engineer Mike Pak. Before heading home we will meet up with label mates Screaming Females for a show at JJ's Bohemia in Chattanooga, a show that also bills Dark Rides, a new super group of sorts. We've been enjoying the new Screaming Females cd that has all their 7" singles. Songs we already loved, now at the ease of our fingertips; We can rock it in the car, We can rock it in the bar, We can rock it near and far, and we can rock it on vinyl too cause we bought copies early on!!! Not sure the availability of the vinyl now?? The songs rule and we recommend the cd!!!
That's it!! Check out our newly updated website
