One would be wise, however, not to mistake their expansive sound as studio trickery, as The Shills have been steadily building a loyal following of acolytes over the course of their ten-plus years together, based primarily on their explosive dynamism and precision on stage. Consisting of Bryan Murphy (vocals, guitar), Ryan Jackson (guitar), Dave Sicilian (bass) and James Zaner (drums), The Shills have been winning the hearts and minds of show-goers, both in and out of Boston, with their musical version of shock and awe.
After an EP ("Push"), an LP ("The Shills"), and a concept record ("Ganymede"), the band embarked on an extremely ambitious project, the two-part record "Keep Your Hand Busy: Vol. 1 & 2". Released as an EP in 2012, and produced by Scott Riebling (Fall Out Boy, Cobra Starship, We The Kings), Vol. 1 served as the 4-song appetizer for what would be the grand unveiling of the band's most quality, complex and complete work of art to date: 2015's "Keep Your Hands Busy: Vol. 2".
After touring in support of Vol. 1, the band began working tirelessly in the studio, diligently crafting the nine songs featured on "Keep Your Hands Busy, Vol. 2", and creating a record unlike anything they've ever done before. This album showcases The Shills in their truest form -- diverse and eclectic, yet focused and cohesive. With an overall tone that ranges from mellow to heavy, soft to aggressive, pensive to unpredictable, "Keep Your Hands Busy: Vol. 2" is certain to not disappoint, and will undoubtedly become the band's landmark musical release.
We are all Party Bois. Vox by Milk and Cookies, Beats Zz, additional needs Gonella, James Wholsome.
