The Shivers announced the forthcoming release of their new album, More, due May 10 via Silence Breaks. The veteran duo (Keith Zarriello and Jo Schornikow) from Queens, NY, recorded the album in Manchester, UK, which, I think, helped them break out of their shell a bit. The first single off More, titled “Used to Be”, is far less downtrodden than standard Shivers material and more varied in song structure (not to mention all that electronica). They’re said to have made More rather eclectic, which had me worried at first, considering I love The Shivers’ older material; but I trust Keith and Jo to pull it off.
