Live On Stage:
The Shivas are a rock and roll band from Portland, Oregon formed in 2006. With mountains of reverb and walls of feedback they have since rolled their swirling dance party throughout many countries around the world. The Shivas have released 5 LPs, a 7” EP and various short run cassettes. They have been featured at festivals such as SXSW, Austin Psych Fest and Levitation Vancouver (BC Canada), as well as having toured or appeared with the likes of The Dandy Warhols, Spiritualized and La Luz.
Their most recent release is February 2016’s long player “Better Off Dead” (K Records LP/CD, Burger Records CASS), recorded at Dub Narcotic Studio in Olympia. Washington with engineer Calvin Johnson. Shortly thereafter comes the release, this May, of their new 7″ (out on Casino Trash Records – Seattle, WA), a headbanging preview of the new material that is to come on their next LP. The Shivas will be spending spring and summer 2016 on tour across North America and Europe.
