Minneapolis dystopian bashers The Blind Shake will release their new album Celebrate Your Worth via Goner on October 21. The first single "I Shot All The Birds" has all the Blind Shake signifiers: big, blunt riffs, animal beat drumming and sneering, shouty vocals. You can stream it below.
The Blind Shake will be on tour at the end of the year with three NYC-area shows: East Village club Berlin on December 8, NJ's WFMU Monty Hall on December 9 with Battery Electric, and then Brooklyn's Our Wicked Lady on December 10. Tickets for the Monty Hall show are on sale now, and no word on lineups/tickets for the other two.
