Alternative Tentacles is proud to announce that the infamous, explosive Southern wrecking crew The Legendary Shack Shakers are set to release their brand new album, titled The Southern Surreal, on September 11, 2015 via Alternative Tentacles Recordings. Their first release in five years, the album lands on the band's 20th anniversary, and is their Alternative Tentacles debut. In conjunction with the album release, Legendary Shack Shakers will tour across much of the United States and Europe this Fall.

The band's incendiary interpretations of the blues, punk, rock and country are all-at-once irreverent, revisionist, dangerous, and fun. Built upon a haunting, Southern Gothic theme, The Southern Surreal is a 15-track set featuring regular band members Colonel JD Wilkes (vocals, harmonica, banjo), Rod Hamdallah (electric guitar), Mark Robertson (electric and upright bass) and Brett Whitacre (drums), with guest appearances by actor/musician and long time Shack Shakers fan, Billy Bob Thornton, and Jesus Lizard guitarist Duane Denison.

09/04/07: AT Legal Defense Fund closes
The Alternative Tentacles Legal Defense Fund has been closed. It was begun in the mid-1980s to help defend The Dead Kennedys and Alternative Tentacles from out-of-control censorious authorities who objected to the H.R. Giger poster included with the final Dead Kennedys studio album, Frankenchrist. You can hear Jello's take on that infamous trial on his 2nd spoken word release High Priest Of Harmful Matter. Funds later supported Jello Biafra and Alternative Tentacles against the Faux Kennedys in 2000-2004.

The cool cats over at Truth On Tees produced the rockin' Bush America as a fundraiser for both the ATLDF and Greg Palast Investigative Fund.

Thank you to everyone who has supported the Fund over the years!
