Shibui have been in the studio recording their music since the beginning of the year. With the first wave of the virus, not really affecting Hanoi too badly, they were able to meet up regularly, keep recording, and even play a show or 2 in between.
Though this track, “Lice” isn’t one that they’ve laid down for their record. It’s a demo that, Chaz (bassist) and Jack (guitarist) were able to smash together one evening, in about 5/6 hours.
“We plan to put any demos not written for the record in an ever-growing online collection called “Filthy Cutz”. It’ll be a collection of demos, b-sides, lives, and covers.”
Shibui’s drummer, Ian is currently undergoing shoulder surgery but should be back pounding the skins again soon.
Shibui are currently putting the last touches on their debut album, which should be set for a late 2020 release.
