The Shivers giving away LP, playing release show tonight
DOWNLOAD: The Shivers - "Love Is In The Air" (MP3)
"it is the first Shivers record released on a label. Everything the band's done previously--five records since 2004--has been recorded, produced, funded and distributed by the Shivers themselves. In that time the band has amassed a small, but devoted following (to which I belong), but little in the way of critical notice or material success. By any measure, this should be the Shivers' coming-out moment, a chance for the band to make a long-overdue move to the Next Level." [The Awl]
The Shivers play a CD release party tonight, Wednesday (6/29) at Glasslands. Trash Gut are on the bill too. Trash Gut's lineup includes an ex-member of Deer Tick, who are openly huge fans of The Shivers...
