The Shivas are a rock and roll band from Portland, Oregon formed in 2006. In the 10 years since forming they have brought their raucous dance party to almost all 50 United States and over 20 countries worldwide, meanwhile releasing 5 full-length albums and two 7" EPs, on labels such as K and Burger Records. 2016 saw the release of the long-player Better Off Dead (K Records LP/CD, Burger Records CASS - 2/16/2016) recorded by Calvin Johnson at Dub Narcotic Studio. Shortly thereafter came the I've Had Enough b/w So It Goes 45rpm on Casino Trash. These releases were followed by full North American and European tours, including The Shivas first trip to Mexico, where they headlined Festival The End at Foro Indie Rocks in Mexico City. November 2016 marks the start of recording for their 6th studio album, the release of which will be followed by extensive tours in Spring and Summer of 2017. Keep an eye out for an upcoming Shivas show in your town. Chances are no matter where you may live, they will be coming through soon.
