Venice power trio The Shrine burst onto the scene with their 2012 debut Primitive Blast. The group's mission statement was to skate, surf, and rock the fuck out. Their infectiously catchy tracks appealed equally to fans of early '80s SST Records hardcore and stoner rock acts like Fu Manchu.
The group's sophomore effort, Bless Off, comes out next Tuesday, March 11th. It continues to trumpet the love of the three things the band held most dear on their debut. Today, we debut the first music video from the album, for the song “Worship.” It is below.
The track is a two-and-a-half-minute blast. It gets up and goes from the very first note, fueled by short bursts of fuzzed-out guitar work from frontman Josh Landau. The video itself is a photo journal tribute to skating, surfing, and rocking out, which moves along at the same breakneck pace of the tune itself.
