Denton-based Texas Soul band Chris Welch and The Cicada Killers to release "Shook" on Feb. 22nd


Denton, Texas is the home of Chris Welch & The Cicada Killers, introduced as the “fabulous Cicada Killers” on “Cicada Sweat,” the James Brown-inspired opening track of Shook, the north Texas band’s upcoming sophomore album, which follows-up its 2017 debut Faded & Frayed.

The pronouncement is the only vocal on the song, an improvisational moment that the band loved and kept, but it’s all that’s needed: The Cicada Killers’ unique brand of soul, shimmy, and shake speaks for itself.

The comedic music video for the album track “Shoenapper” is already circulating. Shook by Chris Welch and The Cicada Killers arrives on Feb. 22nd, 2019 preceded by the single and music video “Borrowed Repertoire”.
