Shannon & The Clams

Yesterday, Shannon & The Clams released their new music video for “Backstreets,” the third single from their forthcoming album Onion (February 16th, Easy Eye Sound) Shannon & The Clams are newly confirmed for 2018’s Panorama Music Festival, which will be held the weekend of July 27th on Randall’s Island in New York City. The band will perform on Sunday, July 29th.

Shannon & The Clams will release their fifth studio album, Onion on February 16th via Easy Eye Sound. The album, produced by The Black Keys front man, Dan Auerbach, at his Nashville studio, finds a finely tuned and tour-tested band stretching out from the 60s-inspired, surf inflected rock that has defined their previous releases, and delves into genres including soul and psychedelic pop. On their new LP, the band explores themes of origin and self-determination, loss and recovery, and the power of community to heal after tragedy. “It’s okay for people to interpret the songs,” Shannon Shaw says. “You can put your own story into it if that helps you heal. I just want people to feel something, whatever it is.”
