American Sharks releasing new album ’11:11′ (stream “Spare the Rod”)

American Sharks

It’s been six years since Austin stoner punks American Sharks released their 2013 self-titled debut, and they’re now following it with a sophomore album, 11:11, on May 17 via The End Records (pre-order). The album was self-produced, and the new single is the ripping “Spare The Rod,” which puts Motorhead’s rhythm section, The Stooges’ raw power, and Black Sabbath’s evil melodies in a blender. For a more modern comparison, it also sounds a bit like Mutoid Man. Give it a spin below. The album also features recent singles “Masters” and “White Witch” and you can stream those below too.

The Austin band are playing some hometown shows during SXSW, including the Hotel Hot Burrito party on 3/12 at Hotel Vegas with Oh Sees and more, the Austin Terror Fest party on 3/15 at The Lost Well with Conan (their only SXSW show) and more, and Jackalope Downtown on 3/16 with fellow Texas band Riverboat Gamblers.
