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 band have just released a raucous fuzz infused psych-pop new single ‘Trophy Child’ to serve as a taster from their forthcoming album ‘Do You Think You’re Clever?’, due early 2016.
“Super band with top drawer songs. Believe the hype”— Niall Carver, RTE

“…it’s hard to believe that this is a debut; there’s a huge amount of depth and maturity in the songs. Here’s an album to listen to again and again, and discover something new as you become acquainted.”— Dan Hegarty, 2FM
