Shannon & The Clams Year of The Spider
The widely anticipated and much ballyhooed garage rock idols SHANNON & THE CLAMS studio album, YEAR OF THE SPIDER, is slated for a summer 2021 release. The band returned to Nashville to record with Dan Auerbach at his legendary Easy Eye Sound studio this past year. Fresh off of their standout album, Onion, and supporting tours with the likes of The Black Keys and Greta Van Fleet, they returned to the studio to craft their utterly unique vintage sound that incorporates wonderfully strange elements of doo-wop, classic R&B, garage psych and surf rock to produce this timeless gem from these perennial favorites. The band, fronted by Shannon Shaw and Cody Blanchard on lead vocals with Will Sprott on keyboards and Nate Mahan on drums, crafted an endlessly vivacious, ebullient and clever album from the kings and queen of the Bay Area garage punk scene.
"When Beach Blanket Bingo gets its 21st century remake, here is the soundtrack." – RollingStone
"Shannon Shaw and Cody Blanchard trick out warped Fifties-Sixties rock driven by space-age thrift-shop keyboards, shimmy-shake dance grooves and sexy moonlit vocals-Shaw's woozy Amy Winehouse-isms are backlit by Blanchard's shrieky falsetto." - Rolling Stone
Featured Tracks include: "Midnight Wine," "Year of the Spider," and "All of My Cryin'."
