Reviews of Shade’s “Latonka” Coming In…

Shade had their record release show over the weekend and we couldn’t be happier for them.

Here are some reviews that have been coming in on the album so far:

Independent Clauses:

Definitely one of the most interesting and memorable releases I’ve heard so far this year. Check out Shade’s Latonka if you’re a fan of post-rock, emotional hardcore or music that’s heavy in more than one way.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:

Shade returns with its most intense record yet

And here are some notes from the Pittsburgh City Paper.

Check out the record here.
