Displeased and pissed off. From the burning frustration and anger about the uprising in police brutality, their cities lack of community involvement and initiative for youth, their public transit system, homophobia and prejudice, cliquey high school bullshit, and peoples ill-natured shit attitudes comes vicious anxiety, and SHOT NERVES. A raging and rapidly spreading conflagration of hardcore punk from this "glorious" government town, the capital of Canada. Started in the fall of 2010 by a few friends (and some enemies) with a plan to bring their frantic rage to the somewhat stagnant all ages hardcore and punk community in Ottawa, and to everyone all over the world, joining the others who are trying to do the same. You build it, they burn it.

Since their incarnation they've become a staple in Ottawa's punk and hardcore community, and have engraved their name all over Eastern Canada and U.S. They've put out a demo tape which was released opening for legendary Montreal punk band, The Nils, and is now almost sold out, and they've been featured on many radio shows across Canada including Equalizing Distort, Seekers of the Truth, and Sounds of the 613. The future brings Shot Nerves in the Top 5 of a new Canadian television show called From Far And Wide, and playing Montreal's Pouzza Fest along with Hellbastard, Poison Idea, Naked Raygun, The Meatmen, Bouncing Souls, & The Suicide Machines among many others. They have no plan to stop any time soon..
