This Is The Third Album of A Band Called Adebisi Shank: an explosion of optimism and musical Glasnost, an Arab Spring of instrumental harmony embracing all things awesome. It’s the sound of the Berlin Wall falling down. It’s the sound of hashtag winning. It’s the sound of musclemen with lightbulb heads that rupture from their own perfection (see cover art). In a word, it’s the sound of triumph… no matter the consequences.

“We were trying to make something euphoric and huge, a universe of our own imagination that we could escape into,” says bassist and masked man Vin. “Our inspirations were more cinematic and fantastical.”This Is The Third Album of A Band Called Adebisi Shank bursts with pure rock anthems with undeniably danceable structures. Alongside the band’s penchant for unusual instrumentation is their clever use of vocoder-effected vocals which seems to invite listeners to sing along with our robot overlords.

In creating the album’s imaginary universe, Adebisi Shank drew on a hodgepodge of inspirations, includingELOEnyaMike OldfieldPixar animated films, Crash Bandicoot video game and Game of Thrones. In 2013, the Wexford, Ireland trio consisting of guitarist/vocodist Lar Kaye, drummer Mick Roe and bassist Vin relocated to a secluded house in the wilds of county Wicklow, to avoid distractions and let their imaginations run wild. Writing and recording daily, the result is a multiverse of musical possibilities.

This Is The Third Album of A Band Called Adebisi Shank will be available everywhere on LP, CD and download via Sargent House on August 12th, 2014.
