Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown have shared the brand new song Shock & Awe.
“When we first chose the cover art for the record, I loved listening to the album while staring at that image,” Bryant said. “It would set off my imagination and uncover new layers in each song. For the Shock & Awe video, we decided to take it one step further and re-create the scenario that is scene on the cover of ‘Truth & Lies.’ With the snakes and the glitter, I think this rock ‘n’ roll wedding party is visual candy for the imagination.”
The song is the opening salvo on the band’s third album ‘Truth & Lies,’ out June 28 via Snakefarm Records and available for pre-order here. The record crackles with intensity, exploring Bryant‘s blues heritage (Ride), heartfelt balladry (Out There), southern roots (Trouble), love of the ’90s rock ‘n’ roll movement (Eye to Eye) and more.
The band previously dropped the track On to the Next over at Guitar World. Listen here.
