Now for the DETAILS. On August 30th Doomtree Records will release Great Hits, the follow-up to Shredders debut album Dangerous Jumps. Here’s a rad little promo video to get you AMPED THE EFF UP.
And here’s the album cover designed by our main branding man Vance Wellenstein, with photography from our bud Isaac Gale.
No album announce news is complete without an ABSOLUTELY FIRE new single. Check out “Suburban Base” below on YouTube or Soundcloud (or right HERE for any of your fav streaming sites). It’s my favorite song that Shredders has ever made and the first time we’ve ever attempted a drum n’ bass jam. BUMP IT.
SHREDDERS – “Suburban Base”
And in case you missed it last month, here’s “Ayeyayaya” which will also be included on Great Hits.
SHREDDERS – “Ayeyayaya”
And now for the album/single/pre-order announce trifecta!!! You know we had to make up a couple of pre-order packages for this bad boy. First up, it’s the Standard Pre-Order, perfect for any budget range and a beacon of support for independent music and independent artists alike.
The Standard Pre-Order includes:
– Access to a private Instagram Live chat with Shredders on album release week
– Immediate digital download of “Ayeyayaya” and “Suburban Base” singles
– The entire digital album emailed on the 8/30 release date
– Shredders custom guitar pick for absolute shredding
And now for the Deluxe Pre-Order, just right for the die-hard fanatic, fierce fashionista, or just great supporter of the arts and indie musicians the world over. Check this out.
The Deluxe Pre-Order includes every single thing in the Standard Pre-Order plus…..

You can grab your pre-order over at the Doomtree Webstore right HERE to get guaranteed early shipping. As always, we really can’t say thank you enough for all of the continued love and support. By pre-ordering this album directly from us you’re not only financially helping Doomtree release the Shredders album, but also contributing to the bills associated with the release of our upcoming albums, in this case Dessa’s live recording with the Minnesota Orchestra. Plus, how can you look at these adorable faces and not purchase this record???!!!
In final Shredders news, we’ve got a couple warmup festivals to rock before we release Great Hits on August 30th. First up is Sociable Cider Werks’ FreakFest block party in NE Minneapolis on August 18th. Doomtree played this a few years back and it was an absolute blast. Excited to share the stage with our big homie Greg Grease and rad songwriter Monica LaPlante. Check out all the sweet deetz and grab your super cheap tickets right HERE.
One week later we’ll head down to Hotlanta (people still call it that, right?) to crush the GridLife ATL Festival. This one is gonna be wild. Three days of music, camping, cars, and much more – plus the lineup includes the victorious return of Flosstradamus AND Soulja Boy. Absolutely bonkers. Check out the flyer below and grab your tickets HERE. We’re performing on Friday, August 23rd.
Alright, that’s it for this momentous announce day. I’m gonna leave you with this new Shredders heat knocker just in case you forgot to click on it up top. Please blare this one at maximum volume and help us spread the Shred gospel far and wide through the internet and in real life. We appreciate you big time.
I hope you all have a truly incredible first week of August and I’ll see you back here next week with a brand new episode of the Tuesdays With Lazerbeak podcast!
