09/11/2015 Gratefulweb.com, 'Legendary Shack Shakers Drop New Album Today'

Released September 11, 2015 on Alternative Tentacles Records–Jello Biafra’s record label–this is Legendary Shack Shakers’ first release in five years, lands on the band’s 20th anniversary, and is their Alternative Tentacles debut (following releases on Yep Roc, Bloodshot, and Arkam Records). The Southern Surreal also features guest appearances by actor/musician and longtime Shack Shakers fan, Billy Bob Thornton, and Jesus Lizard guitarist Duane Denison. With The Southern Surreal, the Shack Shakers explode the ‘Southern Gothic’ concept, reaching so deep into the forbidden roots of Southern culture that the rich mud they bring forth is almost unrecognizable.
