Portland's The Shaky Hands are gearing up for a big Fall with a lot of shows scheduled in support of their latest album Let It Die on Kill Rock Stars.



Their first album was an upbeat affair, while the second album Lunglight was darker, taking a step forward in the evolution of the band. Let It Die is a combination of both of those styles.



"I didn't want make it so every other song was mellow. It's a subtle difference, but I like albums that are done like that, like Bob Dylan's Bringing It All Back Home. I just really love it when you listen to an entire album and have this whole experience, like when an album flows so well that when you get to the last song and return to the first song, it's like "What?!"," said Nick Dellfs when speaking with Interview Magazine.



The album was produced by Jay Pellicci (Deerhoof, Erase Errata, Subtle) and recorded this summer after finishing a tour with the Thermals. They've got a new drummer in Jake Morris (The Joggers, Pseudosix) and a new chemistry.



Let It Die will be released on September 29th on Kill Rock Stars.
