Following two years of recording and production by Greg Dingwall in the band’s “Den” studio, on 29th November 2015 we released The Deadline Shakes debut album ‘Zealots’

Radio support included BBC Radio Scotland playlist, Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music), Vic Galloway (BBC Radio Scotland), Jim Gellatly & Charlie Ashcroft (Amazing Radio).

The Sound of Confusion wrote:

“This is brimming with more ideas than most bands will produce in a lifetime…’Zealots’ should be heralded as a classic debut album, and that’s not an exaggeration… these thirteen songs have given us every right to consider The Deadline Shakes one of the best new bands in the country.”

‘Zealots’ is out now on cd & digital, available from Amazon, itunes and all major stores.   Also available now from our bandcamp store.

Towards the end of 2015, just prior to the release of their debut album, this double A side single came out (22nd Nov 2015). Both tracks feature on the album.

Available now from our bandcamp store:

Scots Whay Hae were one of the first to review it saying, “Maybe it’s just me, but the following sounds like the perfect soundtrack to the end of summer…The Deadline Shakes have, with just a few releases to their name, quickly become one of my favourite bands… They have already released one of the best singles of the year with April’s ‘Phonecalls In The Bath’ and they’ve only gone and done it again with ‘Frozen Out’. They make multi-layered music which ebbs and flows, sounding at once familiar and yet as fresh as…well, as a summer’s day, and this is a superb example of that. Some bands go through whole careers and don’t sound as effortless as this, with everything working together just as it should. Prepare to be dazzled.”
