Sydney trio THE SHAKE UP have announced an Aus/NZ Tour, which will see them hit the road for seventeen shows through October and November. The trio  spent 2011 writing and recording their second album, and this tour will offer fans a rare chance to hear the new album live, before it is released next year.

In 2010 The Shake Up released their debut album…if you have no shame, which was produced by Detroit’s Jim Diamond (White Stripes, Dirtbombs) and mixed in New Jersey by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr).

Spawning the singles ‘Makes Me Sick’ and ‘Everybody Loves It’, the album saw the band clock up three national tours and picked up widespread radio play, giving them even more reason to hit the road to let fans experience The Shake Up live.
