     California hard rock kings THE SHRINE will release their new LP Bless Off on March 11 via Tee Pee Records.  Recorded at Eliminator Studios in Venice Beach, CA, Bless Off is the follow-up to the power trio's debut album Primitive Blast which was hailed as one of the "Top Los Angeles Metal Albums of 2012" by LA Weekly and one of Decibel magazine's 2012 "Albums of the Year".  

     Recorded on reel-to-reel tape using vintage gear and colossal Marshall stacks, Bless Off is a record that attacks with buzzing riffs, blazing hooks and a bruising, mega-amplified punch.  The album features 11 tracks of quintessential riff rock channeling hazy hesher glories including a song ("The Duke") with lyrics penned by Chuck Dukowski in 1983 originally intended for an unreleased Black Flag song.  The cover art to Bless Off features THE SHRINE's ever-present wolf mascot and is an homage to legendary skate punk and gig flyer artist Ric Clayton (Suicidal Tendencies) and Dogtown Skateboards.

      Undoubtedly one of America's hottest underground bands, THE SHRINE plays loud, heavy rock 'n' roll fueled by cheap beer and bad acid that combines the hook-laden appeal of '70's garage rock and gritty '80's hardcore with a skate punk energy and attitude resulting in a sound the trio describes as "psychedelic violence".

     THE SHRINE formed at a house party in Venice Beach, CA in 2008. In 2010, Chuck Dukowski, also a Venice local, discovered the band and produced their earliest recordings. By 2011, THE SHRINE was touring America supporting Fu Manchu and Dukowski on separate tours. Primitive Blast, the band's first official album, dropped in the summer of 2012 via Tee Pee Records and the band followed its release by touring across Europe supporting Fu Manchu once again. The first half of 2013 saw THE SHRINE support two-time Swedish Grammy winners Graveyard on a 30 day US tour followed by an appearance at SXSW as guests of Converse and Thrasher magazine, followed by a West Coast tour supporting Dinosaur Jr.  In the spring of 2013, THE SHRINE headlined Europe for the first time -- traveling as far as Russia and Greece -- and played sold out shows in Berlin and London. In the winter of 2013, THE SHRINE supported Red Fang across the USA and then immediately went "down under" to Australia for the first time, supporting labelmates Earthless on eight huge shows.  THE SHRINE and Red Fang will launch a massive European tour on January 17 that is slated to run all the way through to early April.

     THE SHRINE is: Josh Landau (guitar / vocals), Courtland Murphy (bass) and Jeff Murray (drums).
