The Shoos’ will host a celebration gig for the new album in The Workmans Club on May 26th.
The self-titled 3rd album has already given us two great radio singles, ‘Top Of The World’ and the current, ‘Mothers Love’. The video for the ‘Mothers Love’ clocked up over 3,000 views inside its first week live on Youtube.
At the time of its issue lead singer Shane (Tex) had this to say, “We hope the video is enjoyed, we wanted to celebrate our moms on the new album, and are very pleased with the resulting video for this track (Mother’s Love). A few people have even told us they shed a tear when watching. We are glad it moved some people in this way. The song means a lot to us.”
You would be right to think it’s been a couple of years since you heard from The Shoos. It’s been three & a half to be precise since 2012’s Panic Slowly. This was preceded by 2011’s No1 Rescue Room.
With just a year between Rescue Room and Panic Slowly, Shane ‘Tex’, Scott, Steve & Joe simply wanted to chill and take their time over the follow up new long play. The band is “very proud of the album”, and “for us we believe it to be our best work to date”.
Together since the late 2000s, The Shoos caught the attention of radio & media in general with the release of some cracking singles, which were rewarded with generous radio support in the form of playlist presence. In addition, since its formation, the band has been selected on various occasions as UTV Radio’s Select Irish Artist Of The Month, IASCA’s Play Irish artist of the week, Dermot & Dave’s Homegrown Heroes and many other individual, but consistent, nods from both national and independent local radio. All of which, together with many TV appearances and successful live shows have given the band a solid audience of loyal fans.
The Shoos live shows have also been given the nod by some industry heavyweights including One Republic, who invited them to tour with them when the latter happened to hear the band play in Whelans during a visit to the city. Shane ‘Tex’, Scott, Steve & Joe have also enjoyed high-profile guest slots with Maroon 5, Life House & Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), amongst others.
