Whiskey Shivers make their major film debut today, December 22nd, 2017, with the national release of Pitch Perfect 3, directed by Trish Sie. The band appear as “Saddle Up” – a country inspired band who compete against the Bellas on a USO Tour. Whiskey Shivers show off their acting and musical skills in the film alongside returning cast members Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Hailee Steinfeld.

The jump to the big screen was a natural progression for the fun-loving ‘trashgrass’ band, who have previously appeared on Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, The Daily Show, and NBC’s Revolution. Whiskey Shivers are also known for catching the attention of fans and critics alike for their creative music videos, including ”Gimme All Your Lovin,” which went viral after being featured on the homepage of Reddit. Most recently, Whiskey Shivers released the dizzying video for “Reckless,” filmed inside a gravity-warping box, which can be seen here. Check out Whiskey Shivers featured in the Pitch Perfect 3 trailers here and here and check them out as “Saddle Up” on the official Pitch Perfect 3 Soundtrack here.

Additionally, Whiskey Shivers today announce a new west coast tour supporting Railroad Earth. Kicking off on January 10th, 2018 at Pub Station in Billings, MT, Whiskey Shivers bring their raucous live show to 8 cities along the pacific northwest, before wrapping in San Francisco at the Warfield Theatre on January 20th, 2018. All announced shows are below and additional information can be found here.

About Whiskey Shivers:

A diverse group of masterfully talented musicians from Austin, TX,  whose punk-influenced style stands out from the traditional bluegrass world, Whiskey Shivers have made a name for themselves with their genre-pushing “trashgrass” sound.  On Some Part of Something, their fifth album, Whiskey Shivers hit their stride, refining their unique sound in the studio while still capturing the infectiously chaotic feeling of their legendary live shows. Despite their joyful demeanor and contagious energy, Whiskey Shivers’ songs are often heavy with traditional bluegrass themes and imagery lamenting universal struggles - work, pain, sin, regret and death. Infusing their songs with punk rock energy and a darkly comical light-heartedness, stretching the bluegrass genre to fit whatever they feel is right, it is in this contrast where Whiskey Shivers’ shine.
