The Shrine And Graveyard To Team Up For Monthlong U.S. Tour

Venice, CA "Destroyers of Rock 'n' Roll" The Shrine have announced a winter 2013 U.S. tour. The bad ass band will team up with retro rockers Graveyard for a four week trek that will launch on January 23rd in Boston, MA and will fire up crowds across the country through February 23 in Houston, TX.  The Shrine continues to tour in support of their critically acclaimed new album Primitive Blast, released this past summer via Tee Pee Records.

In celebration of the just-announced jaunt, The Shrine will issue a limited edition tour-only vinyl 7" release which will include the new songs "Napalm" and "Hellride." ESPN recently premiered the ripping "Napalm" and a brand new Scion A/V-produced video interview with the band and original Black Flag bass player (and utter legend) Chuck Dukowski, who has long championed the California trio.

The Shrine's Primitive Blast has met to rave review since its release, being called "collision of '70s headiness and '80s hardcore angst" by the LA Weekly.  SPIN says The Shrine are "Shit-kicking SoCal pool-skaters (that) bridge Black Flag and Sabbath via Cro-Mag hooks and high energy sludge" and the band was just spotlighted as part of the Converse x Decibel series "talking rock and skateboarding" as they turn "found space and hideous architecture into skate heaven. The Shrine are the real deal, folks.

The Shring is Josh Landau (guitar / vocals), Courtland Murphy (bass) and Jeff Murray (drums).
