Still working on that hot first release.



San Diego, California. June 19, 2010. The Day the Earth Shook Still...

The day 4 friends, Will, Cuz, Jesse and Fonda found they shared a common love for vintage organs, hollow body guitars, Theremins, cool ties and a red sparkle drum kit. Over a couple of drinks, a pack of smokes and a few hand shakes …Shake Before Us is formed.

Their “Get buzzed and turn up the fuzz” attitude has yielded true tales of lost faith, booze, drugs, sin and self doubt. A maniacal mix of organ, guitar, dual howling vocals, deep drums and even deeper bass. They pair the past with the future for a unique sound that is vintage yet modern at the same time.

Bass player Cuz: “You need to have a good song to start with, a riff that just takes off and a vocal melody that can keep up with it. We try to take the listener into a different head space. If we feel a song doesn't have those qualities…we drop it.”

Their live show has been described as ”a dark gospel rock revival where salvation is firmly delivered through a relentless wall of sound. Uplifting, but strangely unnerving at the same time.”

Shake Before Us is a rock and roll band in its purist most primitive form with the devil breathing down their necks… and they wouldn't have it any other way.
