THE SHRINE UNVEIL VIDEO FOR 'COMING DOWN QUICK'


Band conspires with Marshall Headphones, Converse, Obey Clothing and more

Venice Beach, CA's purveyors of psychedelic violence, The Shrine, have released the video for 'Coming Down Quick' from their new Century Media Records debut, Rare Breed. The record came out in Europe October 30, 2015 and will see a release on January 15, 2016 (with extended content) in North America.


Produced by Dave Jerden (the venerated knobsman behind such classics as Alice In Chains' Dirt, Jane's Addition's Nothing's Shocking, Social Distortion's self-titled, The Offspring's Ixnay On The Hombre and Eno/Byrne's My Life In The Bush of Ghosts) and recorded through the very amp that Greg Ginn recorded Black Flag's Damaged on, Rare Breed exists in a space that once was was bleeding with razor sharp lines separating punks, metal heads and hippies, where a violent clash in the parking lot of the Cuckoo's Nest was inevitable.

The 'Coming Down Quick' premiere follows hot on the heels of Noisey's "Death To Invaders" video premiere, marking another notch in a banner year for the Shrine that has seen brands like Converse (who commissioned Landau to create a custom shoe) and Marshall Headphones hand-pick the group to become featured artists.

Over the course of their last two records, 2012's Primitive Blast and 2014's Bless Off, (both released on Tee Pee Records), The Shrine has captured the hearts and minds of hardcores, heshers, and skaters alike. After spending the better part of the last two years riding hot rails from hell around the U.S., Australia, Japan, and Europe (including a trip to Russia), The Shrine have found a kindred soul in producer Dave Jerden. He stumbled into Timewarp Guitar Shop on Venice Blvd., where The Shrine performed their debut show at in 2009 and heard their record playing. They quickly shared a mutual obsession over Captain Beyond, The Pretty Things, and The Battle Raven & Nightmare Queen, and the group began to write and rehearse with that in mind. The results are pure California Jam '74 meets Suicidal skate rock being force-fed the brown acid by Charles Manson. 

Fresh off of headlining tours of Japan and Australia, a stint on Motörhead's Motörboat Cruise and an epic 16-city trek with Clutch and Corrosion of Conformity, the group is now in Europe with Kadavar and Horisont.
