Great Shakes finds its origin on the border between Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2019 after crossing paths for years, four musicians from various musical backgrounds decided to collaborate over their love of gritty stick to your brain punk rock. Taking musical influence from Ship Thieves, Alkaline Trio, Social Distortion and classic Weezer, Great Shakes entered the studio with an awesome self-titled debut as a result. A debut that combines massive sing-along pop punk choruses with gnarly melt your face off punk rock goodness.
