Introducing: Shackleton – The Mesmirising, Intoxicating 4-Piece Band


The mesmerising and intoxicating sounds that these 4 boys create when together is starting to cause quite a stir…

Combining epic guitar driven songs and hook riddled melodies their sound is raw, honest, and uplifting. It’s hard not to notice the immense fun and obvious connection these boys have with each other and with the sound they create and this sense of fun is infectious. Whether rocking a pub in London or playing a festival somewhere around the world, the venues change but the message stays the same: lyrics that speak of honesty, truth, and ooze a love that this generation desperately needs!

And the future is bright for Shackleton.

Ever since the release of their self-titled debut EP and their first few years tearing up clubs and pubs around the UK, Shackleton have not sat still, headlining their first international festival in Switzerland ’08, and pressing on, taking them on to bigger stages and supporting bigger acts. And along the way new songs have been sparking, songs that will take human emotions on a joyride and leave you humming an unforgettable tune on your way home…

But of course, this is just the start for Shackleton and they are always preparing for the next stage of the journey, readying themselves for what is next. There’s no doubt this close-knit group have something to say, and they’ll say it in a way that will ensure they have your attention.
