| Legendary Shack Shakers|
Agridustrial was produced by LSS bassist Mark Robertson and is the band's seventh full-length album. Front man J.D. Wilkes explains, "It's the hard driving roots rock of the Shack Shakers' sound with the industrial background of guitarist Duane Denison (Jesus Lizard, Tomahawk)".
The Agridustrial sound mirrors the harsh realities of our present day recession and is the statement of an American band fighting back against a society gone mad with greed and the usurpation of basic human dignities. There are songs that praise Jesus, "Sin Eater", and southern-fried provocateurs, "Dixie Iron Fist". "Hoboes Are My Heroes" is borne from Wilkes’ recent experience of riding the rails. Even the sound of Agridustrial is a direct response to the present day recession, with the band even going to a blacksmith forge to record the sounds of hammers, anvils, tongs, cranks and chains for much of the percussion on the album.
The Legendary Shack Shakers are J.D. Wilkes (vocals), Duane Denison (guitar), Mark Robertson (bass) and Brett Whitacre on drums.
The band will kick off promotion of the new album at SXSW and a full tour will be announced soon.
"Sin Eater" is available for download here.
