The Struts - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Struts
Breakout U.K. band The Struts have revealed a new video for their hit single “Could Have Been Me” from their debut EP Have You Heard out now via Interscope Records. The video was directed by Jonas Åkerlund and shot in London- check it out HERE. The Struts are gaining a fast following in the U.S with “Could Have Been Me.” The song is climbing at radio and is currently #7 at Modern Rock and #13 at Active Rock, with over two million plays on Spotify, hitting #1 on their viral chart. By popular demand, The Struts have added more dates and upgraded to bigger venues after announcing their first stateside tour. The band kicked off the tour at the House of Blues in San Diego and will make additional stops at Lincoln Hall in Chicago, Rock and Roll Hotel in Washington DC, Bowery Ballroom in New York City (which quickly sold out) and The Troubadour in Los Angeles among others. The tour will also feature appearances at the Daytime Village at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, Made In America Festival and Voodoo Music & Arts Experience. See all tour dates HERE. The Struts are Luke Spiller (lead vocals), Adam Slack (guitar), Jed Elliott (bass) and Gethin Davies (drums). Since forming in Derby, England in 2012, the band has been touring regularly throughout the U.K. and Europe playing headline shows across the continent and opening for The Rolling Stones in Paris last year.

For a moment there, Los Angeles based band The Shelters seemed like 21st century rock 'n roll’s best kept secret. But word got out. It started in the clubs. And everyone who saw them thought maybe he or she had gotten there first. By now, however, it’s clear that they’ll all have to share.

The Shelters have their self-titled debut LP coming June 10th on Warner Bros. Records. Just like the EP they released last October as an album preview, their full-length is a blast of Southern Californian rock and roll from a four-piece like they used to make them, when the factory was still up and running. Co-produced by Tom Petty, this album comes at you from behind, nothing you were expecting.

The Shelters had just banded together when Petty heard them and got a gut feeling about what they could be. He gave the Shelters the keys to his home studio and showed them a few things. Though mostly he left them alone, Petty had enough sense to leave the gear powered up. Maybe they were determined to show him he hadn’t made a mistake. Maybe they just liked the way those old tube amps sounded. They seized the moment and got to work, insistent on becoming a band. A real band.

One listen to their single “Rebel Heart,” or any one of the other eleven songs on their debut, and you’ll know they pulled it off. Led by the songs, harmonies and twin-guitar sound of Chase Simpson and Josh Jove, and powered by drummer Sebastian Harris’s groove obsession, the band has put together a collection of recordings that have an immediacy, an emotion, and a musical intelligence that suggests these boys are beyond their years.

People are going to reference some of the great rock and roll bands of yesterday and today. But this is no tribute show. The sounds they’ve made seem to have been dragged from the vaults and forced to fit the present. It’s all a beautiful reminder that rock and roll may have slipped out of view for minute, but it’s still out there, alive in the hands of the ones who need it the most.

The Shelters, now including Jacob Pillot on bass, have toured recently with the likes of Gary Clark Jr, Mudcrutch, The Kooks, The Wild Feathers, BRONCHO, Atlas Genius, The Struts and more, plus made major festival appearances across the country. They will tour the nation at the end of 2016, including a run of shows with Band Of Horses in October.
