Salford based 3 piece Shoshin will be releasing their second album ‘Epiphanies and Wastelands’ on 25th May via 7Hz Productions.
Having skipped the rites-of-passage gigs in forsaken venues and devised their own method of reaching a wider audience, Shoshin performed street shows, guerrilla gigs and their signature technique of ‘crowd-jacking’ where they ruthlessly exploited crowds assembled for other events.
One major appearance that saw Shoshin propelled into the spotlight was a 7 hour performance in the snow at Eurosonic Noorderslaag in Holland. Whilst not being booked for the festival, the band pitched up to entertain the crowds going in, earning them the unofficial title of ‘most successful band at the festival’ by Dutch press.
The lead single from the album will be ‘Plan C’ which is due for release on 18th May.
The band were recently invited into Bryn Derwen Studio in North Wales to record and film the performance of 5 songs 100% live on 20-03-15 (day of solar eclipse), which are available to watch on their YouTube channel.
