Following the release of their debut single ‘The Routine’ earlier this year, Von Shakes have just released their first album also titled ‘The Routine’, with a second single due out in June.
A Rock ‘n’ Roll four piece from Dublin, the band have finally brought the sound that has enthralled audiences in Ireland, England, Germany and even Russia to the recording studio.
With the production help of Conor Brady (The Blades, The Revanants) and Phil Hayes (Delorentos, Bell X1), Von Shakes have translated their electrifying live sound onto record, capturing everything that has contributed to their critical acclaim in the past year.
The album ‘The Routine’ contains 11 tracks of classic rock for a new decade. This is a collection of modern anthems with no limitations in terms of its appeal to music lovers everywhere. Gritty vocals, clean instrumentals and infectious choruses – ‘The Routine’ is evidence of the bands’ musical aptitude.
Playing live every week this past year has served to cement Von Shakes as one of the tightest bands in Dublin and this is effortlessly demonstrated in every song on the album.
Bold but not pretentious. Classic but relevant. This is the ‘The Routine’.
Nothing if not punchy, Von Shakes know when to build up and when to break down, making this track far from the same old routine" – Celine Murphy, HOT PRESS
'The Routine' shows a band that have grown in stature since their debut EP 'Mind Your Head' and if they keep going in the direction they are, could grow to be a force to be reckoned with." – Music Review Unsigned
Trading in a blend of fast and furious rock & roll, spiky guitar pop and punk angst, this scintillating debut from the north Dublin four-piece should prove a suitably impressive kick-start to their recording Colm O’Hare – Hot Press
