Right in the midst of a fabulous summer festival season, Portland Oregon-based Shook Twins have just announced the addition of late summer and early fall tour dates to their already stacked calendar and a new song/video premiere. A first time tour to the Midwest and South in late September and for the entire month of October, will bring the groups trademark “eclectic mix of  folks, roots, pop and fun” to a whole new audience.  Dates added include visits to familiar strongholds at Missoula Winery & Event Center in Missoula, MT on Sept. 18th, a visit to their home state of Idaho in Boise at The Egyptian Theatre on Sept. 20th and The State Room in Salt Lake City on Sept. 21st.  New forays find the group venturing throughout MN, IL, IA, WI, OH, TN, NC, GA and Arkansas. Highlights include stops at Boats and Bluegrass Festival on Sept.28th in Winona MN, A Daytrotter Session in Rock Island IL, The Bubble Music Festival in Madison, WI on Oct. 4th , Music City Roots – Live from the Loveless Café Barn in Nashville TN on Oct. 16th , and October 17th - 20th at Yonder Mountain Harvest Festival in Ozark, AR. The group will wrap up the month of October with some select dates in Colorado.

To celebrate the summer season, Shook Twins just released a new song/video premiere on Relix of “Holler It Down” from their forthcoming new album. The tune was written by violinist and band member Anna Tivel (Anna and the Underbelly) and videotaped as part of the “Humboldt Live Sessions” by Chuck Johnson in Humboldt County California. This past May the group headed into the studio with Grammy nominated producer Ryan Hadlock (The Lumineers, Milo Greene), and spent three weeks immersed “in the music,” at Hadlock’s renowned Bear Creek Studios in Woodinville WA. Shook Twins anticipate releasing the new material tentatively titled “What We Do” in Winter 2014.
