The band The Shookies has recently had concerts with the Irish formation Interference and Glen Hansard and has also released a new single, Lonely & Weak. In March, they are planning to christen a second album, Sooner or Later, which is being created in cooperation with producer Tomáš Neuwerth in the Animan studio in Kopřivnice. The Brno christening of the album will take place in the Melodka club.
During their eight-year existence, The Shookies have played dozens of concerts all around the republic. In March, they will christen their new album in three places. First, on Wednesday 16 February in the Olomouc Jazz Tibet Club, and returning to their earlier hometown of Vysoké Mýto where they had their first ever concert on 16 February. The Shookies will end their tour with the new album in Brno’s Melodka club on 21 February from 8 p.m.
The Shookies were created in 2010 in a café in Vysoké Mýto, where they met as a group of boys with similar musical tastes and a will to create something together. They were inspired primarily by the songwriting of foreign folk rock and acoustic rock groups, and they went from simple busking in the park to the club and festival scene. In 2014, they christened their debut album Great Test Hits. The single Lonely and Weak, which will also appear on the album that is being prepared, was created in cooperation with producer Tomáš Neuwerth in the Animan studio in Kopřivnice.
