Get To Know: THE SHAKES!

July 30, 2011

UPDATE (8/11): Due to legal reasons, The Shakes had to change their name before the release of their debut EP which drops September 7th!… From now on, they are the ALABAMA SHAKES — Same band, same great music! If you’re a Facebooker, you can re-facebook fan them here

Wanna hear a band with some true soul both live and on record? Then get to know The Shakes from Athens, Alabama who will be opening for The Drive-By Truckers September 10th at Chattanooga’s Track 29! Jaw-dropping tunes that remind you of what music used to be… that’s the only way to describe it. We have chills!

Stream a few tracks below to see what we mean… The first set of 5 are new recordings from The Shakes’ Bomb Shelter Studios session in Nashville. And catch some killer live videos of what to expect in-person. This show will be AMAZING! And expect an album in the near future… The band recently reported: “Returning to Nashville this Saturday [7/30] to lay down the last tracks.”
