The band are called Shellshag. Their forthcoming album on Don Giovanni is called Shellshag Forever
. There’s a song on it called “Forever” so technically, the video for said song cannot be a title track. But it rocks, and you may view their garage nastiness now.
While the band can’t be on the road forever (some people have lives, you know), they will be hitting the road next month:
April 13… Brooklyn, NY (Union Pool) *
April 19… Hoboken, NJ (Maxwells) !

Shellshag Forever will be released on April 16th.
Forget the fact that the drums are slightly off tempo, for Shellshag are probably more on than you’ll ever be. They may be this generation’s Dead Moon, and if you don’t know who they are, that’s your fault. Now get to know Shellshag, whose Shellshag Forever album comes out on Don Giovanni Records on April 16th with the kind of unabashed ruthlessness that comes from playing and performing sweaty garage rock, the punk goodness that’ll make you want to beat up your parents.
Jen Shag and John Shell will be doing some shows in coming weeks, and you may put your bottom dollar or whatever that phrase is to see them. They will be performing with a string of fine musicians, so check them if you can.
