Toronto, Canada’s most energetic indie rockers, Hollerado, have shared their brand new single “Don’t Shake”. The song is another massively catchy track from their upcoming full length, Born Yesterday, due out April 14th on Royal Mountain Records (PUP, Alvvays, Mac DeMarco).
Hollerado‘s specialty is tapping into the most key elements of rock & roll and injecting them with a whole new energy and creativity. The result is Born Yesterday, an album full of big guitars and even bigger hooks. By striking a careful balance between personal and political lyrics, and housing them within undeniably vibrant songs, Hollerado proves that guitar music can still be as powerful as it is fun.

Digital and physical preorders for Born Yesterday are available now.
“Don’t Shake” is a shining example of this balance, with it’s infectiously catchy mid tempo stomp and intensely personal lyrics. Vocalist/guitarist, Menno Versteeg, said of the track, “When we were writing this album, our guitar player Nixon was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He wrote this song as his way of asking the people in his life to help him believe everything would turn out alright, even if it meant pretending.”
Hollerado have previously toured with and supported Weezer, Jack White, Flaming Lips, Julien Casablancas’ Voidz, and just wrapped up a lengthy European tour with Sum 41. The band aren’t stopping anytime soon with a massive run of Canadian tour dates lined up for the spring. See full itinerary below.
Born Yesterday is due out April 14st via Royal Mountain Records. Physical and digital preorders are available now. The band is available for interviews upon request. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.

Hollerado’s debut album Record In A Bag came out in 2009 and received a Canadian JUNO award nomination for Best New Artist. Their incredible “Americanarama” video garnered over 1.4 Million YouTube views with its forcefully creative approach to video making, and the album spawned the Top 10 radio hits “Americanarama” and “Juliette” as well as Top 20 radio hit “Got To Lose.” The launch of White Paint followed, their 2013 studio release, which included the Top 10 song and video for “So It Goes,” a wrenchingly personal story about lead singer Menno Versteeg’s Dutch grandfather, whose life life was spared in World World II. Hollerado’s band ethos is centers around building a community of music loving fans, so it’s no surprise that 2015’s 111 Songs was a project where they wrote custom songs for specific fans. This exhaustive continuous songwriting project built the working framework for the release for their new album, Born Yesterday, a record that taps into the pillars of rock & roll.
