The Shanks

THE SHANKS Founded in 2005 on a farm in Mono, Ontario, Canada. The Shanks are a
blistering rock duo comprised of bass and drums. A combination of 1970s album-oriented rock and protopunk, the Shanks belt-out melodic chordal arrangements amidst a sea of low end and pounding rhythms. It’s haunting, tribal arena-rock played on a basement floor. The Shanks have been touring steadily across much of Canada and the U.S. performing at multiple festivals including NXNE. In 2012 and 2013, the band embarked on European tours, first in support of their 3-song 7” EP "Feel The Holes", released Fall 2012 on Mono Butcherboys Records/Fading Ways Music (UK) and distributed by Broken Silence Records (Hamburg), and again this past Fall, 2013. The Shanks will be on tour in the U.S. and Canada in continued support of "Surfing The Lexicon" as the album becomes available through wider distribution this Fall.
