In the early afternoon on day one of Sonic Temple, Shvpes helped welcome everyone on the temple grounds. This is a band that is now getting consistent airplay on SiriusXM and although there is a relation to metal royalty, it sounds like these Brits are carving their own identity.
This was my first time seeing this group perform live and I’m starting to understand why they are gaining a following. They have a unique sound with good melodies in both guitar and vocals. It’s not the same strum and riff band that is plaguing rock radio.
This was the type of performance that made me want to hear more of the band. Shvpes latest album Greater Than is supporting several singles and paired with the live performance, it’s hard to ignore the effort they are putting in.
Shvpes will be heading back to EU/UK to perform festivals there. You can keep up to date with the band on their Facebook page here: Shvpes on Facebook
