Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown’s new album Truth & Lies debuts June 28. The band will tour this summer with Black Stone Cherry, The Temperance Movement, and Thomas Wynn & The Believers.

Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown have shared the brand new song “Shock & Awe.” Listen to the track, an all-out, gritty riff fest anchored by bluesy vocals.

“When we first chose the cover art for the record, I loved listening to the album while staring at that image,” Bryant said. “It would set off my imagination and uncover new layers in each song. For the ‘Shock & Awe’ video, we decided to take it one step further and re-create the scenario that is scene on the cover of Truth & Lies. With the snakes and the glitter, I think this rock ‘n’ roll wedding party is visual candy for the imagination.”

The song is the opening salvo on the band’s third album Truth & Lies, out June 28 via Snakefarm Records and available for pre-order here. The record crackles with intensity, exploring Bryant’s blues heritage (“Ride”), heartfelt balladry (“Out There”), southern roots (“Trouble”), love of the ’90s rock ‘n’ roll movement (“Eye to Eye”) and more.

The band previously dropped the track “On to the Next” over at Guitar World.
