(Venice, CA) THE SHRINE announced a winter 2013 U.S. tour, teaming up with retro rockers Graveyard for a four week trek that will launch on January 23 in Boston, MA and through February 23 in Houston, TX.
THE SHRINE continues to tour in support of their critically acclaimed new album Primitive Blast, released this past summer via Tee Pee Records.

Watch Napalm and a brand new Scion A/V-produced video interview with the band and original Black Flag bass player (and utter legend) Chuck Dukowski, who has long championed the California trio below.

Primitive Blast received rave review since its release, being called “collision of ’70s headiness and ’80s hardcore angst” by the LA Weekly.
SPIN says THE SHRINE are “shit-kicking SoCal pool-skaters (that) bridge Black Flag and Sabbath via Cro-Mag hooks and high energy sludge” and the band was just spotlighted as part of the Converse x Decibel series, Talking Rock and Skateboarding, as they turn found space and hideous architecture into skate heaven.
Plus, check out legendary skater Mike Vallely “killing” Double Rock to Primitive Blast HERE.
THE SHRINE is Josh Landau (guitar/vocals), Courtland Murphy (bass) and Jeff Murray (drums).

“Although they draw from multiple genres, THE SHRINE defies the categories of metal or punk, thrash or doom, creating a sound uniquely their own, which they’ve christened “psychedelic violence.” One of the first to recognize and help foster their sound was none other than original Black Flag bass player and co-owner of SST Records, the legendary Chuck Dukowski… heavy, hilarious, fast and loud”ESPN

“THE SHRINE plays music that, by design, gets to the point. There’s no filler here, there’s no pretense and no buildup, it’s just pure hardcore intensity, rage and passion all to be taken with a grain of salt of course. This is punk rock for the new vinyl generation. It’s crossover thrash played through Orange amps. This is what you should be listening to this summer when you hop your neighbors fence, drain their pool and skate the shit out of that motherfucker”HEAVY PLANET
