For TYLER BRYANT & THE SHAKEDOWN, the best way to engage with a world tipped into turmoil was to create new music. It's easier said than done in socially distanced times. But for these Nashville-based musicians, the challenge was there to be grasped.

The group will release its new full length Pressure on October 16 via Snakefarm Records worldwide.

Watch the video for first single "Crazy Days" BELOW.

The song is the first track to emerge. It was written and recorded at the start of lockdown. It's an instinctive howl at the moon — upbeat, hopeful, talking of the times.

"I was imagining nights out with my friends, packed concerts, and so many other things that felt beyond reach," reflects vocalist/guitarist Tyler Bryant. "Music has always allowed us to travel to a different place, and this song made us feel good right away. I truly hope it makes others feel the same."

"Crazy Days" needed to be shared, and it wasn't long before the quarantine clip (featuring Bryant and his wife Rebecca Lovell, one-half of roots rock duo LARKIN POE) was causing an online stir.

But why stop there?

With a house full of gear, plus the support of producer Roger Alan Nichols, a longstanding friend, maybe an EP could be crafted. Four new tracks, possibly even six?

But why stop there?

Like every act, THE SHAKEDOWN's live schedule was now sitting on the shelf. So here was a chance to focus on the 30-to-40 new songs they had in their locker and turn the EP into something greater.

The result is Pressure, which is their fourth studio album. It features 13 new numbers, including a re-recorded version of "Crazy Days", plus guest appearances from Lovell on three tracks, along with BLACKBERRY SMOKE's Charlie Starr on "Holdin' My Breath".

Pressure is a record with a clear theme and a never-say-die spirit.

The band says, "We were backed into a corner with the world shutting down and knew our only response was to turn up loud in a basement and make something. Everyone feels pressure in their life at certain points, it's often difficult to know how to cope, and this was our way of dealing with things. There were countless limitations to making this album in lockdown. But these limitations ultimately fueled us creatively. We had no rules, and the road blocks we encountered forced us to find other ways to the destination we were hell bent on reaching."

TBSD finishes, "Our goal with this album was to empower ourselves to push back against the pressures we were feeling until something beautiful happened. We hope it inspires others to do the same. Now is the time for us to send the needle into the red."

With bassist Noah Denney having recently left the ranks on friendly terms, it was down to Bryant, drummer Caleb Crosby, and guitarist Graham Whitford to cast obstacles aside, reach for the bass when required (since Bryant handles most of these parts) and focus in on their collective mission, with new compositions ("Hitchhiker", "Coastin'") coming to life in the process.

This wasn’t a quest for technical perfection, this was all about bottling the moment, tapping into emotion, and allowing the full range of the material to shine through, from full-tilt rockers to rootsier, more atmospheric moments.

It's career-best work forged in turbulent times.
