The Shell Corporation
"We shall continue to deliver best value to our stakeholders by
providing superior music to our customers, maintaining our high
financial performance and improving our standing as a good corporate
citizen of the world by aligning our direction in long-term sustainable
Contrary to popular belief, The Shell Corporation
are a band. Jan, Curtiss, Sean and Jake have been in other bands, but
we didn't come here to dwell on past indiscretions, we gathered here
today to talk about their new band. A band that has been described as
Hot Water Music, old Against Me, Jawbreaker and The Flatliners, but much
more handsome and talented, by their respective mothers.
Money, Fame…The Shell Corporation craves not these things. Ok, money
would be nice but for now they will settle for getting on every stage
and down in every basement they can find and screaming at you till they
blow their voices out. And while waiting for the checks to arrive they
will just keep working soulless day jobs so they can continue to make
songs about what's wrong with the world (PLENTY!) mixed with some good
ol' fashioned melody.
They released their debut album "Force
Majeure" in September 2011 and a 7" EP entitled "Bread & Circuses"
and immediately began touring Europe and the U.S. shoving their message
down the pie holes of anyone that will hear it. This summer will see the
re-release of their debut on 12" vinyl (Solidarity Recordings), as well
as the release of their follow up EP "Time and Pressure". These
releases will be followed up with extensive touring the US and a
European tour in November, 2012.
