SHIROCK (pronounced SHY-ROCK) is: Chuck Shirock – lead vocals, guitar, Pap Shirock – lead vocals, keys, Adam Gatchel – drums, Kevin Whitsett – bass, Evan Weatherford – lead guitar   New video for the track ‘Still Young’ sweeping the video channels, recently added to MTVu, Princess Cruise Lines, California Music Channel to name a few with in-store video play at Wet Seal, Kohl’s and American Eagle Outfitter’s.

“ ‘Still Young’ is a song about trying to find hope when all we felt was doubt and uncertainty – it’s about feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of big ideas and passing time, but realizing that as long as we are alive there is still a chance to make a difference,” Chuck says.   Everything Burns (Deluxe) is a 20 song voyage on freedom, love, hope, fear, transformation and just what it means to become a better human being. That might seems like a tall order for a rock album but SHIROCK makes their soul searching inquiries sound exhilarating, with swooning choruses, sparkly panoramic arrangements and lyrics that may at times flirt with darkness but ultimately tilt towards optimism.   “It’s taken quite a journey, and many songs to get to Everything Burns. Pap and I recorded 3 albums of demos before we finally met Adam, and later, Kevin and Evan – but Everything Burns is SHIROCK’s debut,” says the band’s charismatic leader in describing some of the key tracks on the album. “The songs on the album – they’re our lives, our relationships, our friendships within the band. They’re our pursuit of trying to figure out who we are and how it all makes sense,” Chuck says. “It’s all of that put to music.”

Taking a quick detour from her role as SHIROCK keyboard player and singer Pap Shirock can now be seen featured in American Eagle Outfitters ‘We The People” campaign, check it out here: http://www.ae.com/web/browse/category.jsp?catId=cat90040
