The Shivers Announce New Album, U.S. Tour Dates

Queens, NY duo The Shivers will release their latest album More on May 10th. Recorded over five fiendish days in an entirely analog studio Manchester, the band fleshed out tracks created at their homebase, a small church in Queens. To give fans a preview of what to expect, the band has released album track "Used To Be" for free download. Driven by a jangly, steady guitar and catchy synth line, the song celebrates letting go of old anxieties and resentments.

The rest of the album finds the band exploring sixties garage rock ("Irrational Love"), upbeat pop ("I Want You Back," "Used To Be") and heartsick love ballads ("Love Is In The Air"). The Shivers will also be hitting the road in May, beginning with a gig at San Francisco's Cafe Du Nord on May 4th. Listen and download "Use To Be" and view the list of tour dates below.
