"The Sheershock Revival are on a mission to create a 100 per cent rock'n'roll listening experience, [with] the kind of twin-guitar lead work that hasn't been heard since Robbo and Gorham joined Thin Lizzy." Scott Rowley, Classic Rock magazine.

Biography

Formed in Swansea, UK, in 2004, The Sheershock Revival give us 100% Hard Rock with the swagger of Led Zeppelin, the Thin Lizzy lead guitars and the sheer showmanship of The Rolling Stones, which results in a live show to savour.

Brothers Steve & Andy Williams, along with Jonny Williams and Rob Jones played their midnight performance in a dark, smokey, packed basement club in Swansea. Everything that could possibly go wrong, went wrong! Where other bands would crumble, these guys got on with the job and rocked out regardless - their spirit was tremendous and their performance was unstoppable. The band signed to rock-lovers Sonrise Records shortly after the show.

Sheershock love great music. Their main musical and cultural influences include classic 1970s artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix & ZZ Top along with 1980s rockers U2, The Alarm & The Cult to name but a few, not forgetting popsters such as Justin Timberlake [it's just Justin], Duran Duran and Lionel Richie [no joke - they can all write TOP tunes!]

Sonrise Records have licenced their 5-track mini-album which was released on 28 February 2005 and are preparing to release the band's first studio album entitled 'Electric Vibes' in April 2006. Also, the band will be touring throughout 2006.
