SHAG ROCK Release New Single ‘Old School Lover’ + Announce Tour

“[Old School Lover] is contagious and brilliantly-written…assurance that Shag Rock are a band that are doing everything they can to become one of indie-rock’s next big names.” – Pilerats

Cruising into Spring in style, it’s clear Shag Rock haven’t lost their mojo as they return with their bold first single of 2019, Old School Lover, premiered earlier this week via Pilerats.

Shining with it’s groove-driven riffs, upbeat vivacity, and contagious harmonies, Old School Lover reminds listeners of the one that got away, but reassures you of the light at the end of the tunnel with that classic “Shaggers” optimism. 

Recorded at Brisbane’s own Airlock Studios alongside Powderfinger’s Ian Haug, the energetic release is a strong evolution from their past releases. “‘Old School Lover’ is a track that’s definitely outside of our ordinary safe-haven of laid back tunes – but it’s one we’re really proud of,” guitarist/vocalist Al Wilson explains.

The past two years have been a wild ride for Shag Rock, made only more exciting as their loyal fanbase has grown. With sold out shows across Australia and a sold out eight-date run across New Zealand in December, the four-piece have cultivated a formidable 15 million total streams globally.  The band’s dynamic live energy has seen them support and play with a raft of Aussie legends, including The RubensOcean AlleyTia Gostelow and Lime Cordiale

Having spent recent months recording in the studio and further refining their already electrifying live show, Shag Rock are raring to take Old School Lover on the road, to show off new tracks and cycling through old favourites across eight dates in October and December. 

Just a taste of what’s to come, Old School Lover is a peek into the lads’ exciting studio sessions. So kick back, crack a cold one and let Shag Rock carry you into the sunny season.
