Announces US Tour w/ The Slits * Digital Release of Destroy Me I'm Yours out March 5th on Starcleaner!
Jen kicks ass like a warrior queen on the drums and Shell blends in the punky gutiar to make it a perfect combination of punk meets tribal warriors. – Ari Up of the Slits
The noise rock fury of Shellshag was a time warp back to Providence, RI c. 2000 when bands like Lightning Bolt tore up semi-converted mill spaces like fort thunder, back to an age when people were loud and beer routinely flew through the air with reckless abandon (sometimes accompanied by full drum kits). – Spin Magazine
An ass cranking minimalist racket. – East Bay Express
Shellshag has created a niche all their own – offering up sex appeal, sweat and destruction as crucial elements of their explosions on stage. – The Portland Mercury
We at Solid PR are pleased to announce the digital release of the Shellshag’s full length Destroy Me I’m Yours out March 5th on Starcleaner.
After touring the world and warming up the stages for the likes of Iggy Pop, the Cramps, Lightning Bolt, Liars, Japanther, Black Lips, Le Savy Fav, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Guided By Voices, DMBQ, Peaches and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, this Brooklyn duo have their sites set on global domination, utilizing their own blissful and abrasive blasts of raw noise as an instrument of unity.
If you’ve seen Shellshag live, then there may be a good chance that you took home a memento in the form of either a cut, bruise, welt, broken bone, burst ear drum, STD, court summons, cattle prod markings or chipped teeth. But one thing that will remain is the memory of an evening you’ll never forget.
Renowned for their ferocious shows, the duo of Shell and Jen on guitar and drums (and body percussion respectively) unleash Destroy Me, I’m Yours to the world this March, followed by a national tour with The Slits and appearances at the South By Southwest Music Conference in Austin. Destroy Me I’m Yours is a racket filled foray though the most coarse of
pop knacks from a duo holding true to an instrumental dexterity, where Jen
and Shell’s energy is wholly reciprocal and bounces through decibel
bedlam. The amount of energy and sonic stamina that some bands use in more
than one gig comes natural to Shellshag in every song.
