Freshly inked Sire band THE SHYS (formerly The Gun Shys) are winning fans over in every corner. "Call in the Cavalry," the first single from their new album, is being prominently featured in the new MTV show "Fast, Inc.," as well as the HBO hit series "Entourage." The Shys debut "ASTORIA" is available digitally now and in retail stores July 11, 2006.
The Shys have just come off two national tours, most recently with The Vacation and previously with hot UK trio The Subways and have wowed audiences with their live performances. Rolling Stone.com exclaims, "Frontman Kyle Krone is like a prettier Conor Oberst -- but they tear up the stage with their fuzzed-up super-rock like the Who in the early days."
In more Shys news, their CD release show will be on July 10 at Los Angeles's Troubadour and then they'll hit a series of dates in the UK on the Club NME tour for the rest of July before returning to play San Diego's Street Scene with bands like Kanye West, Queens of the Stone Age and AFI on August 4th.
