Silaluk, the debut full-length album from Richmond, Virginia post-punk revivalists Shadow Age, is out now on 6131 Records. The album is garnering critical acclaim among a movement of new bands revisiting the classic post-punk sound.
“Musically I was really inspired by most of the older UK post-punk bands from the early ’80s,” vocalist and guitarist Aaron Tyree says. “Like The Chameleons, The Cure, Death Cult, Danse Society.”
“To me post-punk refers to both the genre as well as the continuation of the punk movement of the late ’70s and early ’80s,” Tyree continues. “I think that when it comes to Shadow Age, the term is completely appropriate.”
Shadow Age is finding success after two years together. “I think that we work well as a band because we always try to push ourselves and each other when it comes to making music,” Tyree says.
Tyree is excited to wrap up Shadow Age’s first West Coast tour in Eugene. “I’m sure it will feel a bit different than the others,” Tyree says. “The last show of tour typically, at least for me, has a really special kind of feeling.”
Shadow Age plays with Uglysexgod and Ghost House 9 pm Thursday, Oct. 29, at Old Nick’s Pub, 211 Washington Street; free. 21-plus.
