Shannon & The Clams Sign To Hardly Art


On May 21st, Hardly Art will unveil the latest album from Bay Area mainstays Shannon & the Clams. Dreams in the Rat House was born, kicking and screaming, in a cabin belonging to the part-time Punkette‘s Uncle, and “Rip Van Winkle” and features back-ups by Magic Trick‘s Noelle Cahill–is your first taste of the album in all its retro-indebted glory. Today the band also announces a summer tour with Mikal Cronin, which takes them from the West Coast through the Midwest, up into Canada, and down along the East Coast into the Southern United States. See below for a full rundown of dates, and be sure to download “Rip Van Winkle” at the link above. Advance copies of Dreams in the Rat House are available upon request. Shannon & the Clams will be performing multiple times at SXSW this year; a breakdown of their scheduled performances follows.
