The group will release its sop#re full-length, Mandrake, via Paper + Plastick Records on February 25. The full-length will see a vinyl release on April 1.<br><br>This Burbank quartet has only been around since 2011, but they wasted no time making an imprint in punk circles with a heavy touring schedule and the releases of their Force Majeure LP and Time &amp; Pressure EP via Solidarity Recordings. Mandrake ups the ante from those two releases and The Shell Corporation is out to prove that it belongs in any conversation about the best new bands in punk rock. <br><br>The band has released a teaser video, which can be seen on their website (also YouTube: <a href="" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"></a> ), featuring a clip of new music from Mandrake. Additionally, in an effort to introduce new listeners, the group has put up its Time &amp; Pressure EP for free download on Bandcamp. The Shell Corporation is recommended for fans of Bad Religion, Propagandhi, The Clash, Anti-Flag, No Use For A Name, or any punk rock with a melodic sensibility.<br><br>Mandrake was recorded in the fall of 2013 at The Lighthouse Recording with producer Chris Hesse in Woodland Hills, CA and it was mastered by Stephen Egerton. The Shell Corporation will be announcing a tour and releasing a brand-new song in the near future, so keep an eye out!<br><br>The Shell Corporation &#x2013; Mandrake<br>February 25, 2014<br>Paper + Plastick Records<br>Teaser video<br><br>1.
