You would be right to think it’s been a couple of years since you heard from The Shoos. It’s been three & a half to be precise since 2012’s Panic Slowly. This was preceded by 2011’s No1 Rescue Room.
With just a year between Rescue Room and Panic Slowly, Shane ‘Tex’, Scott, Steve & Joe simply wanted to chill and take their time over the follow up new long play. The band is “very proud of the album”, and “for us we believe it to be our best work to date”.
The self-titled new album has just gone live for pre-order on itunes and is set for release on 26th February next. While on pre-order the album is at the special price of €5.99 (from release the price will be €7.99).
The new single ‘Top Of The World’ is also an instant grat, therefore, can be downloaded straight away once pre-order has been made.
Together since the late 2000s, The Shoos caught the attention of radio & media in general with the release of some crackin singles, which were rewarded with generous radio support in the form of playlist presence. In addition, since its formation, the band has been selected on various occasions as UTV Radio’s Select Irish Artist Of The Month, IASCA’s Play Irish artist of the week, Dermot & Dave’s Homegrown Hero selection and many other individual, but consistent nods from both national and independent local radio. All of which, together with many TV appearances and successful live shows have given the band a solid audience of loyal fans.
The Shoos live shows have also been given the nod by some industry heavy weights including One Republic, who invited them to tour when the latter happened to hear the band play in Whelans during a visit to the city. Shane ‘Tex’, Scott, Steve & Joe have also enjoyed high profile guest slots with Maroon 5, Life House & Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), amongst others
