Published Mar 11, 2013Canada's West Coast is home to some stellar punk acts, and Victoria, BC's Shake! Records is showcasing some of that talent with a new compilation called Shake It Up Vol. 1, due out on April 3.
Among the artists included on this 10-song comp are the Jolts, Shitty Neighbours, Greenback High and Durban Poison. The majority of the songs are unreleased or exclusive to this compilation, although the tracks from Shitty Neighbours and Mascara Nites have already been released.
Almost all of the bands hail from Vancouver or Victoria, but Headons are from Sweden. See the tracklist below and the artwork above.
The record will be available in a run of 600 black vinyl records with a yellow cover, or in a limited pressing of 100 copies on mint green marbled vinyl with a metallic silver wrapper. This so-called Mint Edition is hand-numbered and comes with two posters.
