Snakefarm Records Announces Launch With Siging Of Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown



Nashville rockers become first band on fresh imprint under the Spinefarm Records banner. Self-titled album to be SNAKEFARM’s premiere release on November 3rd, 2017.

SNAKEFARM to focus on new and recognized names in the worlds of roots rock music with blues & country inflections.


SNAKEFARM RECORDS is delighted to confirm Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown as the first act to join the label following a freshly-inked worldwide deal.


Housed within the global infrastructure of Spinefarm Records (a UMG label), the Snakefarm brand will provide a supportive home for international artists, both established and new, from the increasingly buoyant roots rock world – music based on authenticity and emotion, under-pinned by a core set of values and beliefs.


In this respect, Nashville-based Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown – fresh from guesting with Guns n’ Roses – stand as a flagship representation, ticking all of the available boxes.


Comprised of Caleb Crosby on drums, Graham Whitford on guitar, Noah Denney on bass and backing vocals, and Texas-born Tyler on guitar and vocals, the quartet released six-track EP ‘The Wayside’ in 2015, produced by Grammy Award-winner Vance Powell and released via Spinefarm in the UK and Europe. This six-track outing made it clear that here was a group with the skill and the knowledge to draw from the glories of the past whilst simultaneously keeping a clear eye on the future, mixing history with a youthful, energetic heartbeat.


Due to be released on November 3rd, 2017, the new self-titled TBSD album (and debut Snakefarm release) was crafted in Nashville by the band and mixed by producer / engineer / multi-instrumentalist John Fields (Soul Asylum, Paul Westerberg), featuring a brand new set of infectious and varied songs, some of which – including epic rocker ‘Aftershock’– have become staples of the live set.


In 2016, TBSD joined friends and Nashville neighbors The Cadillac Three for a tour of the UK, sharing the stage with the headliners on a nightly basis – the start of an on-the-road, ‘round-the-world adventure that has seen them guesting with some of rock’s foremost legends (AC/DC, Aerosmith, Deep Purple, G n’ R), appearing at the Download and Ramblin’ Manfestivals in the UK, and generally becoming as comfortable projecting their passion into stadiums as rockin’ out in theaters and clubs…





It’s been a whirlwind run that is set to continue through 2017-18, with headline shows and festivals already announced, and being added to, on both sides of the Atlantic. However, it’s the new Snakefarm Records release that’s first on the agenda.


Says Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown:-


“We’re beyond excited to be teaming up with Snakefarm to release our new self-titled album. We’ve become close with their team, and have learned that their passion for real music is not rivalled by many. That’s something we both share. Together, we’re gonna take our brand of rock ‘n’ roll to as many people as we possibly can.”

Adds Snakefarm/Spinefarm UK Head of A & R / King Cobra Dante Bonutto:-

“There’s so much great activity in rootsy guitar music right now, and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown are the perfect group to both showcase and celebrate everything that’s going on. They’re young, they’re dedicated to their craft, they’ve got barrel-loads of attitude, and they rock hard… and when they get onto a stage, and they’ve already occupied some of the biggest stages there is, they know how to entertain. Snakefarm and The Shakedown, The Snake and The Shake, it feels completely right…”

EX-HIM Frontman Ville Valo Reveals New Band & Album

Ex-HIM Frontman Ville Valo has announced his return to music with his new band, Ville Valo & Agents, with their debut single, a cover of Rauli Badding Somerjoki's 'Orpolapsi Kiurun'(‘Orphan Child Of The Skylark’) to drop later this month on the 21st September, with an album to follow in 2019.


Ville has teamed up with Esa Pulliainen, guitarist with veteran Finnish band Agents, to record an album of songs inspired by late Finnish rock’n’roll singer Rauli Badding Somerjoki.

“This story begins three years ago,” says Pulliainen, whose band played with Badding in the 80s. “Upon finding three demo cassettes in my drawer which had been sent to me by Badding back in the day, I knew I had to contact Ville right from the get-go. I was aware he knows his Badding inside out. I'm really happy that we were able to finalize this project. Badding meant for these songs to be recorded and even if it took us 30 years to make that happen, I feel I've kept my promise."
