The Shaker Hymn are a four-piece alternative rock band from Cork, Ireland. Having known each other since childhood, the quartet started making rudimentary teenage noises back in the midst of 2005.

The catalyst for what would become The Shaker Hymn was a two-month American excursion early in 2012. A remarkable road trip ensued, involving acoustic support slots to Chelsea Crowell (daughter of Rodney). It was on this trek that brand new, future-embracing songs were crafted; songs that would shortly enter the repertoire of the fledgling Shaker Hymn.

Following national and local airplay of their first two critically acclaimed singles, the band’s debut album, Rascal’s Antique, was released on 30th May 2014, on the band’s own label, Heavy Noids Records.

The self-penned and self-produced ten-track album, mixed by Christian Best (Mick Flannery / O Emperor), covers all bases from garage-style cut ‘n’ thrust through to deceptively hard-edge, Byrds-y power pop.
