Let it Die is The Shaky Hand's second album on Kill Rock Stars and the first
featuring new drummer Jake Morris (The Joggers, Pseudosix). Recorded
immediately upon the band's return from seven weeks of supporting The
Thermals' Spring US tour, Let It Die is the sound of a band at the top of their
game. Armed with a solidified line-up and some of the best songs the band has written, they brought their live energy into the studio and captured it perfectly. Jay Pellicci's (Deerhoof, Erase Errata, Subtle) production is solid, immediate, and the songs sound absolutely huge.
Let It Die will be a watershed record for this band on the verge.
**PRE-ORDER** Vinyl orders will come with a FREE vinyl copy of the Break The Spell (previously only available from the band on tour) EP. CD orders will come with a FREE digital download of the Break the Spell EP.

That said, there are some more TANNING shows on the horizon.
Sept 10 @ Berbati's w/New Radiant Storm King, and Sad Horse
Then Sept 18th w/Inside Voices,What's Up? and the Shaky Hands for MFNW
A couple more are in the works as well.
I finally got the Oxford Collapse(RIP)/JOGGERS split 7" in the mail. They are pretty sweet and you can get one from Insound I believe. The other split 7" w/ the awesome PAN TOURISMOS is so close to being done. I think Professor Whitesides just turned in the artwork.
That will be available on Partisan records soon.
There has been talk of a double 7" release show, but nothing is set yet. Stay tuned.
The Fall is gonna be hecka busy for yours truly. Shaky Hands release Let It Die Sept 29th.
Release show w/Panther on Oct 1 (my 35th Bday but whose counting?)
Then US tour then Europe thru Thanksgiving, back to US til Xmas.
Somewhere in there we will welcome in the first Jogger baby, unfortunately NOT named Bjorn or Bjork Bourque ( why not??!?!?!?!) and HOPEFULLY that aforementioned 7" show.
So...til I'm back on the interwebs, consider yourself UP 2 DATE.
LOCK YOUR DOORS, WINDOWS AND HEARTS FOLKS!!!!!
