Local band Shovels & Rope surprised fans today when they announced that they have a new album set to be released on February 18th, 2022 and dropped a new single (listen below). The new record, titled Manticore, is already available for pre-order.
The following was included in the press release for the new album:
“It’s not heavy metal, but in our guts, it feels a bit like Heavy Metal.”
The songs and stories that make up Manticore are visceral, bold and at times deeply personal. And while all those adjectives could be used to describe the duo, this time around it rings true in a way that hits differently – or at least harder. Perhaps everything hits harder for everyone these days.
And while most of these songs were written before the pandemic, they were all recorded at a time when everyone was inside. It takes aim at the human experience and does so without pulling a single punch: reflections on idol worship, homelessness, social justice, the experience of fierce parental love and marital strife are all on the menu here; and in true American fashion, the helpings are plentiful.”
