Bay Area retro-punks Shannon and the Clams latest album, Dreams in the Rat House sees it’s official release through Hardly Art Records today. “Rip Van Winkle” is the second single from the new album, and although it was release by a contemporary act, the track sounds as though it were some old record from 1963 which was forgotten and rediscovered in a dusty, used record store. Ah, the power of analog recording!

The band will be on a lengthy tour with stops in San Diego, CA; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; Missoula, MT; Minneapolis, MN; Chicago, IL; Detroit, MI; Milwaukee, WI; Cleveland, OH; Toronto, ON; Montreal, QC; 6/20 at the Bowery Ballroom; and several others.
