We're heartbroken about Erik Petersen's death earlier this week. After knowing him & Denise for years, I was super proud that we added Mischief Brew to our roster 2 years ago (following fellow Philly punx Witch Hunt). My deepest condolences and love and support go out to my fellow Philadelphians and friends elsewhere who are grappling with this truly awful news. I wish I was out there with you to grieve. Let's celebrate his life and art and dance on the ruins! -Jesse Luscious, AT GM

08/24/15: LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS DEBUT MUSIC VIDEO "MUD" ON NOISEY
Legendary Shack Shakers have posted their first music video from their upcoming album, "The Southern Surreal" on Noisey: Music by Vice! "Mud" is the first track to be released from the album, and vocalist JD Wilkes had this to say:
"Mud" is an anthem for good ole "Whiskey Dick", the train that once served as the drunkard's shuttle to the "wet" counties of Kentucky.
Characters abound along the way; from a clown named "Spoons" to a "Dixie Witch with a mud yurt in a ditch." (I always wanted to sneak the word "yurt" into a song.)
Check out the new video below, and be sure to pick up a copy of The Southern Surreal from Alternative Tentacles on September 11, 2015!
