The Shivas Are Touring This Fall

You know what to do, right? Listen to Portland's The Shivas.
They will release their fourth LP, You Know What to Do, on October 28 on Olympia-based label K and on cassette via Burger Records.
Cassette? How presh.
Having drawn comparisons to bands like Thee Oh Sees and Black Lips, The Shivas blend elements of surf-pop, garage-rock and good old fashioned rock 'n' roll, dousing their hook-filled melodies with a healthy dose of reverb.
Recorded at K's own Dub Narcotic Studios and mixed on tape by Calvin Johnson, You Know What to Do is a collection of fuzzy, frenetic jams and hazy slower tunes that feature dreamy male and female harmonies.
Sound good to you?
You don't have to wait until almost Halloween to hear a song. Check out their new track "Manson Girls" below. Oh, like Susa Atkins and Linda Kasabian, right?
You know what do -- listen!
