About Adebisi Shank

Adebisi Shank play energetic/edgy guitar based instrumental rock. They released their eponomously-titled debut EP in 2007. Two of the members also play in the band Terrordactyl.

In the summer of 2008, the band received a grant from the Wexford Arts Council to record its debut album in Baltimore with producer J. Robbins (Jawbox, Government Issue). 'This Is the Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank' was released in September of 2008 on the new D.I.Y. label The Richter Collective, formed by Roe and Barry Lennon of Dublin post-hardcore act Hands Up Who Wants to Die. The album was released in the U.K. in November of the same year.

'This Is the Second Album of a Band Called Adebisi Shank' was released in Ireland and the U.K. in August of 2010 on The Richter Collective. It was the group's first release to include vocals, courtesy of guests Jape and Conor O'Brien of Villagers.

I had no idea what to expect from these guys and desitpe an initially crappy sound, they were totally rocking. You could see Puffy and the others headbanging backstage watching them every now and again. And later on during the FNM set, Patton called them
