The Shondes Release New Album, Embark on National Tour

by Bridgette Miller


Brooklyn band the Shondes are hitting the road this fall to promote their new album Searchlights, out September 20 ( Exotic Fever Records, pre-order here to receive a signed CD or LP and bonus poster by artist Katy Weselcouch).  The genderqueer quartet is building a reputation as rock ‘n’ roll’s next revolutionaries, drawing on both riot grrrl and traditional Jewish music influences, delivering powerful and impassioned performances, and giving the violin some serious political-punk cred.

Get an early listen to Searchlights track “Ocean to Ocean” here, and check out this trailer for the album:
