The Shambolic, a three piece hard rock band from Manchester, England are centered around songwriters Al ( Guitar & Vocal ) and Lee ( Bass & Vocal ) with a variety of other musicians as required. The two lads have been working / playing together for around 7 years and have travelled hundreds of miles playing around fifty gigs in some tremendous venues such as Manchester Academy, Moho, The Boardwalk and Music Live at the NEC in Birmingham.
In early 2014 they decided to come off the road to write some new songs and record their debut album. Collaborating with three great drummers, Paul Lewis, Andreas Andrews and Chris O’Rourke they set to work in The Stable Studios, Manchester. Armed with the knowledge of what their audience wanted from their music and performances they started writing. A back to basics sound, raw and uncompromising. Never worried about criticism or expectation about how things should be done, they had their own vision about what they wanted to create. Something that could be reproduced on stage by a little trio without losing any of the integrity captured in the recordings.
Over a year later they emerged with “The Dead, The Dying & The Damned” , a ten track album loaded with fury, energy and power. Their hard work was rewarded when USA indie label Factory Fast Records first offered them a place on a compilation album called “Hells Decibel” release date Oct 6th 2015 and then signed them for the release of their full debut album, release date Oct 1st 2015.
On 14th August 2015 The Shambolic returned to what they love best, playing and performing. The belief that the new music would work as well on stage was proved right and they delivered a storming show. Now as album hits the market you can find the band on stage somewhere rocking the house, amps crackling, guitar squealing, growling and screaming WE ARE HERE2ROK. YEAH!
The Shambolic is on Jamsphere with the tracks, “Death Of Me” and “Home Alone With Methadone”.
