ORIGINAL SHADOWS OF KNIGHT MEMBERS REUNITE FOR FIRST NEW SONG IN 53 YEARS!

 Finally some fun news!

Original Shadows of Knight members, Jimy Sohns & Jerry McGeorge reunite in the studio for the first time in 53 years for their new sneering garage rock single “Wild Man.”
You read that correctly, folks. For the first time since 1967, two original Shadows have banded together to cut a new record. This new, rip-roaring garage rock single, “Wild Man,” reminiscent of Gloria & Backdoor Men, is written by Michael Weber & Jimy Sohns. Weber, The Shadows of Knight’s 22-year old guitarist/musical director, produced this single. “Wild Man” features Jimy Sohns tearing it up on snarling vocals, Jerry McGeorge beating a blistering rhythm guitar, and Michael Weber delivering gritty lead guitar, transistor organ, bass, and drums.
In 1966 and 1967, The Shadows of Knight overtook the garage rock world with their anthem “Gloria,” among other hits like “Oh Yeah,” “Bad Little Woman,” and “I’m Gonna Make You Mine.” They finished their streak of singles with “Someone Like Me” in 1967, which marked the end of the classic lineup of The Shadows of Knight.
“Wild Man” should be seen as a celebration of the original lineup. It is their first release since the ‘60s that epitomizes their classic energy and spunk, and it is The Shadows of Knight’s strongest record since their glory days over 50 years ago.
I really hope you enjoy this song as much as I do. To be involved with this project is beyond my wildest dreams. Turn on your time machines. Although this song was recorded in 2020, let’s travel back to 1966.
Now available on Spotify, YouTube, and anywhere that music exists.
