Budapest’s Heavy Hitters SHELL BEACH have released Hero, the first new music in five years!
The track is the first to feature the band’s new vocalist Zoltán Bodóczy, a well recognised figure in the Hungarian underground scene and formerly of Grand Mexican Warlock. Hero also sees the return of original guitarist Viktor Sági. Bodóczy has played a major role in co-writing the band’s forthcoming new the record and his involvement has led them to expand their style dramatically. Dancing between post-hardcore, alternative and experimental rock genres, Shell Beach are almost impossible to categorise and put into one box.
The music video for Hero was filmed on location at Tarnók Mine (Tárnoki Kőfejtö) in Hungary which was also a prominent filming location for Bladerunner 2049.
Zoltán Bodóczy comments on Hero: “This was the first track that was born out of the band’s new line-up. The lyrics follow the suffering of a man, but with a twist. Because of things we cannot resolve, we’re unable to move forward, carrying with ourselves the kind of baggage that makes it impossible to start over again.”
Recorded at Supersize Recording Studios and produced and mixed by founding member Attila Horváth, ’’Hero’ is the first taste of Shell Beach’s new album which will be announced soon and will be supported with a full European tour.
Founded by long-time friends, Shell Beach are no strangers to the European touring circuit with 6 European tours under their belt as well as appearances at several major European festivals. The band has toured Europe supporting ENTER SHIKARI and a handful of their own headline tours. Shell Beach has also graced the festival stages of GROEZROCK Festival (BE), SZIGET Festival (HU), ROCK FOR PEOPLE Festival (CZ), ELECTRIC CASTLE (RO), VOLT Festival (HU), and many others. Touring helped mature the band’s sound and helped Shell Beach get further established as the most prominent band of the Hungarian and Budapest post-hardcore scenes leaving the band’s fanbase eagerly awaiting their forthcoming record.
