Perth rockers The Shakeys have announced their debut full-length record, Mob Mentality, is set to be released Friday, October 8. To celebrate, the four-piece are hitting Lucy’s Love Shack on Saturday, October 9, playing the album in its entirety. They will be joined on the night by Shit Narnia and Brackets (featuring members of Surf Rabbits).
Recorded live at Poons Head Studios by award-winning engineer Rob Grant back in 2018, Mob Mentality comes nearly seven years since The Shakeys released their well-received White Lightning EP. The launch has been a long time coming for the band, after a string of bad luck saw the original release date in 2019 pushed back several times.
According to vocalist Claire Hodgson, the band wanted to capture the essence of their live shows in the studio, saying the aim was to “track everything as fast as possible, smash it out and keep the punk in it, keeping our live sound in the recordings.”
Showcasing two sides of the band’s fast, furious and addictive blend of punk meets rock and roll with a sprinkling of garage, Mob Mentality’s ten tracks are said to alternate between both the melodic sounds and the in-your-face raucousness that have made The Shakeys a popular local live act.
The Shakeys release their debut album Mob Mentality on Friday, October 8, and hit Lucy’s Love Shack on Saturday, October 9. To buy tickets and for more info visit oztix.com
