Dirty Shrines brand new single, “The Devil You Know“, is out now on all of your preferred streaming platforms. Featuring members of indie-punk darlings Elway & Chumped, the Colorado based quartet certainly shares similarities to their current/former bands, but Dirty Shrines puts a spotlight on their love for 70’s guitarmonies and 90’s alt-rock. Nashville indie label Black Numbers will be releasing their debut album, Digital Ego, on Friday, September 17th and vinyl pre-orders are available now.
Dirty Shrines is a rock band from Fort Collins, Colorado founded in 2018 by longtime friends and musical collaborators Tim Browne and Brian Van Proyen (Elway), Drew Johnson (Chumped), and Max Barcelow (Gregory Alan Isakov). They owe their sound to a melange of influences from Steely Dan and Hall & Oates to Jets to Brazil and The Killers. The result of a few years of tinkering is Dirty Shrines’ debut LP “Digital Ego”: a begrudgingly self-aware treatise on the terminally-online world via 10 track flight of fancy that dabbles equally in 70s rock, power pop, punk, and indie.
