The Shacks now less strange with ‘Strange Boy’ video release, album details, dates
The Shacks came into my life right around the time I became a regular user of messaging platform Slack. As if it wasn't hard enough to stop accidentally typing "The Slacks", I just also accidentally typed "Stranger Boys".
ANYWAY, check out the new video for "Strange Boy", by the SHACKS:
Last we spoke, The Shacks were just releasing this song, which is actually by El Michels Affair, as a single. The Shacks have since played a show at Bowery Ballroom (opening for Chicano Batman), released the above video, and released actual Shacks album details. Oh, and Shacks main member Max Shrager also just released a full EP of solo material out of nowhere.
First the new Shacks release. It's self-titled EP, out October 7th via Big Crown.
Tracklist (via Flood):
“Left It With The Moon”
“Hands In Your Pockets”
“No Surprise” (Bonus Track)
“Strange Boy” (Bonus Track)
About that Max solo EP (which is out now):
Big Crown Records is proud to present Max Shrager’s debut EP, “Thoughts Of You.” This is a collection of songs that Max, now 20, recorded over the past 5-6 years and what he calls “the best of everything I've done as a solo artist up to this point.” Now dedicated to his band The Shacks, he spends most of his time focusing on writing and recording for their upcoming EP & full length due out on Big Crown in Fall of 2016 and Spring of 2017 respectively. Six songs on a beautiful 10" picture sleeve EP, another Big Crown sureshot.
Listen to to a song from that too:
The Shacks have two upcoming dates (both with other Big Crown artists):
The Shacks -- 2016 Dates
Sept 15 @ Tender Trap w/ 79.5, Paul & The Tall Trees
