This Is A Shakedown! Chosen Band To Watch In 2009
This Is A Shakedown! Has Been Chosen Band To Watch In 2009 By The Cleveland Scene Magazine.
PR9.NET January 08, 2009 - Cleveland, OH - This Is A Shakedown! has been chosen band to watch In 2009 by the prestiges Cleveland Scene Magazine. When singer-guitarist Brandon Zano, programmer/laptop maestro Justin Nyalis, bassist Daniel Lee and drummer Stephen Nicholson came together less than two years ago to form This Is a Shakedown!, they shook off the heavier influences that shaped most of their previous bands (including such noted local ensembles as Leo, Tender Blind Spot and a Dozen Dead Roses). Instead, they opted for booty-shaking music - "sexy music," says the garrulous Zano - that doesn't just seethe and rage but sparks an outpouring of dance-floor ecstasy. While walloping, electronica-enhanced dance rock hasn't been in short supply in recent years, these guys really pack a punch, pumping up their prominent '80s influences to arena-esque proportions. Zano, a caroming ball of energy onstage, declaims his vocals as if he's trying to bridge the Grand Canyon, propelled by Nicholson's and Lee's rocket-launcher of a rhythm section. Meanwhile, Nyalis's embellishments are the mirror ball revolving above the crowd: flickering, everywhere-at-once starbursts that crank up the excitement level. The band's hard-driving past gives tunes like "Love Kills" and "You Make Me Wanna" a heavy edge, but it's the relentless beats that make them so irresistible.
Currently recording at Ante Up Audio in Cleveland, OH,with multi-platinum award winning producer, engineer, arranger, and composer Michael Seifert, they'll release their debut Album "SEX CELLS" May 5th of 2009
on Seifert's Reversed Image Unlimited label.
The album will be mixed by Sean Beaven who has produced the likes of Marilyn Manson, Nine Inch Nails, 8MM, No Doubt, Gun And Roses, Slayer and more.
