The Shit presents their second album “N°2”!
After travelling to Joshua Tree, California to record The Shit’s first release, “Dingleberry Fields Forever” in 2012 (SubversivRecords), the band chose to stay closer to home for the production and recording of this second album, working with producer Matt Bordin at Outside Inside Analog Studios near Venice, Italy. “N°2” also features an amazing list of guest musicians such as Delaney Davidson and Pierre Omer (Dead Brothers) and David Catching (QOTSA, Eagles of Death Metal) among others! The mind blowing artwork was once more made by legendary artist Dirk Bonsma.
“N°2” is a slight departure from the Boogie, Butt-Rock of the first album concentrating instead on a more straight-forward Rock & Roll sound but still featuring The Shit’s trademark “wall of guitar” sound and of course their one-of-a-kind sense of humor! Subversiv Records will officially release “N°2” October 9th, 2015 (Vinyl, CD, Digital). The Shit will be available for bookings in Fall/Winter 2015/16. Live shows will also feature Roland Bucher and Christian Aregger - Two drums and Three guitars!
The Shit are Robert Butler (Lead Vocals & Guitar), Pit Lee Hertig (Drums), Philipp Thoeni (Bass) and Franz Hausammann (Guitar) who formed the band in the fall of 2010 bubbling up from the vast, dirty corners of the Swiss underground music scene from bands like The Come N’ Go, Reverend Beat-Man’s Blues Trash Trio, Unhold, The Licks, Miracle Workers (US), King Pepe, Da Cruz, The Fuckadies, Ray Wilko, Bishop’s Daughter and dozens of more groups you never heard of.
