Audacious garage punk band, Baby Shakes will release their new album, Cause a Scene on September 20. Coming up through the last vestiges of the mythically grimy NYC rock bar terrain, the band’s scroungy power pop sounds pay homage to original wave punk greats like the Nerves, the Beat, the Kids; early Bangles and Go-Gos; snarly proto-grrls, the Runaways; and of course and forever, the Ramones. The band recently released acclaimed lead single “Nowhere Fast” and now they have unleashed the irresistible rock’n’roll anti love song, “Love Song In Reverse”.
Baby Shakes return with their new and best album in hand, standing strong in their 4-inch heels, beaming smiles, always on-point outfits, and unwavering pep, seeming nary a day older than they were when they started. Cause a Scene nails their redux so hard, it busts through the wall to something new. Having perfected their punch-pop, they slip in surprises for longtime fans, while creating a now-times power pop classic for the previously un-shook. They have over a decade of backstage and onstage shenanigans with theBlack Lips, Iggy Pop, the Boys, the Undertones, Buzzcocks, Barracudas, Protex, the Romantics, Paul Collin’s Beat, Shadows of Knight, Derv Gordon (The Equals) etc. in their arsenal. The band has announced live dates in the US and Japan, with stops in NYC and Baltimore. Guaranteed when you see them live in a city near you, they’ll be yucking it up at the bar then tearing it up onstage like 2008 was last Tuesday.
