MAGNET Television: Q&A With Allen Epley (Shiner, Life And Times)

When it comes to timing, Shiner isn’t the luckiest band. When the group last released an album (2001’s The Egg), it was in the immediate aftermath of September 11. Fast forward almost two decades, and the Allen Epley-led quartet is back with long-awaited comeback Schadenfreude, which Shiner has issued during a global pandemic. If you liked the space-y, dynamic, riff-heavy rock the band delivered back in the day, you’re going to love Schadenfreude. You’re also gonna have to wait a while longer to see Epley and Co. play the new stuff live. But that’s the shape of things to come.
