Babylon Shakes frontman Chris Clark feels rock n’ roll could be in midst of resurgence
Newly formed Babylon Shakes band members Chris Clark (lead vocals, guitar), Jeff Mortimer (drums) and Gary Jordan (bass) were interviewed earlier today live via the Facebook group Love 80s Hairbands and Southern Rock Bands !! They Rock!!.
The band is scheduled to play its debut gig at Sleazy Slimey Series – Holiday 6 Pack hosted by Brad Lee Entertainment and headlined by Tora Tora at the Cancun Cantina in Hanover, Maryland, USA on December 10, 2017.
Babylon Shakes were asked where they saw the future of rock n’ roll in this day and age of technology. Mortimer advised: “We want to dial the clock back and let people remember why they fell in Love with Rock music in the first place.” Clark opined: “I feel pretty hopeful for rock n roll right now. The industry is almost like the wild west..so much uncharted unkown territory, but with newer bands like Greta Van Fleet and Biters coming on strong, we could be in the midst of a resurgence.”
In terms of how the band name Babylon Shakes came about, Clark stated: “I had written a song called “Babylon Shakes” for my last band and it never really got completed and fully fleshed out. I always liked the name and thought it had a timeless, rock n roll feel to it. It just felt like a great name for this band to take on.”
