Diamond Day Records has announced the release of The Steepwater Band’s 6th full-length studio album SHAKE YOUR FAITH. The LP, featuring 11 brand new TSB tracks was recorded last winter at Crushtone Studios, in the shadows of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, in Cleveland, Ohio. Shake Your Faith was produced by the band along with seasoned rock studio veteran Jim Wirt, who has also worked with the likes of Fiona Apple, Incubus and the Buffalo Killers. As with most TSB albums, the sound and songwriting on Shake Your Faith has grown and expanded, yet retained the true nature of the band. It’s the first TSB studio record in over 4 years and the first to include “new” guitarist Eric Saylors.

With the additional band member, the songwriting approach for this record was different than it was on past TSB albums, when they were a 3-piece. Singer/Guitarist Jeff Massey comments on the TSB songwriting process…“Each song was different. I had a few totally finished songs, or Tod would bring a complete piece of music that would need melody & lyrics. And there were also a bunch of other musical ideas coming from both Eric & Joe, which we would all hash out together.” Drummer Joe winters states “Everyone really brought ideas to the table, collaboratively, more so with Shake Your Faith, than with any other of our records. That really created a special vibe around the songs.”

After the release of Shake Your Faith, The Steepwater Band embarked on a lengthy 5 week European Tour that will see over 32 shows in Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Poland and Czech Republic. The band looks forward to jumping back over the pond to their enthusiastic fans that are anxiously awaiting to hear the new TSB music live.
