Watch List: The Shelters Bring Old School Back With The Help Of Tom Petty
The Shelters are doing something exciting in the sense that their music takes your mindset to the days of classic rock being popular music. They're bringing back the culture of rock where people of all ages can enjoy it together. One four-song EP is already out, but the debut self-titled album hits the stores on June 10 via Warner Bros Records.
The Los Angeles band is made up of four members: Chase Simpson (vocals, guitar), Josh Jove (vocals, guitar), Sebastian Harris and (drums) and Jacob Pillot (bass). Notably, both the EP and the full-length have been co-produced by the highly respected Tom Petty, famous for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Allegedly, this all came about after Mr. Petty caught the Shelters ripping a gig and was so impressed he wanted to be apart of the band's career.
The first single from the debut album came in the form of "Rebel Heart." The song takes us back to when our parents would play classic rock in the car. The content of the lyrics is also very standard, reminiscent of old school rock in the sense that it is about an untamed girl with a "rebel heart" that does absolutely whatever she wants whenever she wants to. Put on some dancing shoes and listen for yourself below!
The Shelters have shared tours with major acts such as Gary Clark Jr. and the Struts and are currently out on tour now with Tom Petty's band Mudcrutch. For all info on news, tour dates, music, etc check out their website!
