Biography

San Diego California June 19th 2010. The day the earth shook still…

the day 4 friends, Will, Cuz, Jesse and Fonda found they shared a common love for vintage organs, hollow body guitars, Theremins, cool ties and a red sparkle drum kit. Over a couple of drinks, a pack of smokes and a few hand shakes …Shake Before Us is formed.

Their “Get buzzed and turn up the fuzz” attitude has yielded true tales of lost faith, booze, drugs, sin and self doubt. A maniacal mix of organ, guitar, dual howling vocals, deep drums and even deeper bass. They pair the past with the future for a unique sound that is vintage yet modern at the same time.

Bass player Cuz: ““You need to have a good song to start with, a riff that just takes off and a vocal melody that can keep up with it. We try to take the listener into a different head space. If we feel a song doesn’t’t have those qualities…we drop it.”
Their live show has been described as”a dark gospel rock revival where salvation is firmly delivered through a relentless wall of sound. Uplifting, but strangely un nerving at the same time.”

Shake Before Us is a rock and roll band in its purist most primitive form with the devil breathing down their necks… and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

    Saw these guys at Marilyn's on K this past Thursday, they were pretty good! Wasn't even expecting to hear any live music that night, and wound up being pleasantly surprised.
