Dispatching slamming rock thrusts and engaging hooks with stout muscular riffs, SALT RIVER SHAKEDOWN pool from the classic rock groove of Free and Deep Purple and the modern edge of Rival Sons and Audioslave to craft a sound that is unique and engulfing. The Scottish four-piece reveal their new EP, Road To The Sacred Island, on Friday 19th July. Prior to this, SALT RIVER SHAKEDOWN have unleashed a new track, Numb – https://youtu.be/yZkTsViIYV4 in support of their upcoming tour with NOCTURNE WULF.
Although SALT RIVER SHAKEDOWN are a relatively new project, the members of the band have previously played together under the guise, Magic Trik. To date, SALT RIVER SHAKEDOWN have supported everyone from Voodoo Blood, Black King Cobra and The Courtesans to Altered Sky. Fueled with an uncompromising persistence to play for crowds whenever and wherever possible, the band give their all at every show, and this mantra is earning the live-wired foursome a formidable reputation, and rightly so.
Now with a growing fanbase in tow, the hard-rockers are primed to drop their new EP, Road To The Sacred Island. The seven slabs of infectious modern rock that front the release see the band pushing themselves further than ever before, experimenting with new sounds and more complex arrangements. Guitarist Alek McMillan states: ‘These songs have been the most intricate compositions we have created to date. We have poured our hearts and souls into this EP. Through recording and producing the record myself, I’ve become so closely attached to these songs for the past year, and I can’t wait to share this musical journey with everyone.”
