In celebration of their first new album in 18 years, the acclaimed Ignition, the boys from Zion fire up for Austin

ZION, Ill. — Following the August 2012 release of Ignition, their first new album in 18 years, Shoes will appear at the South by Southwest (SXSW) Music Conference and Festival in Austin, Texas in March, their first time at the event.

The legendary power pop band, originally from Zion, Ill., will bring their memorable melodies and do-it-yourself ethic for a series of performances and a discussion panel at one of the most prestigious music gatherings in the United States.

Showcases for Shoes include a Wednesday, March 13, 1:35 p.m. show at Molotov for the SXSW Guitartown/Conqueroo/M Music & Musicians/AllMusic Block Party Kickoff; a Friday, March 15, 4 p.m. performance at the Ginger Man Pub for the Dog Fish Head/Blurt Magazine SXSW Party; and an Official SXSW Showcase concert presented by CD Baby at 11 p.m. at Maggie Mae’s. More appearances are planned though not yet scheduled.

Shoes member Jeff Murphy also will be participating on a Friday, March 15th, 11 a.m. panel discussion in Room 11 AB of the Austin Convention Center.

“We’re really excited about having the opportunity to participate in SXSW,” says Shoes singer/bass player John Murphy. “It’s a great event with a lot of people who love music. We’re looking forward to being a part of it.”

Shoes’ 2012 release, Ignition, received glowing reviews from publications around the country and further added to the band’s legacy.

Ignition is Shoes’ 11th studio album and their fourth self-released album of all-new music since parting ways with Elektra Records, which released Present Tense (1979), Tongue Twister (1981), and Boomerang (1982).

The 1984 Shoes offering Silhouette brought the band back to the same self-released D.I.Y. process it had used for the 1977 groundbreaking Black Vinyl Shoes album. Shoes followed up in 1990 with the critically acclaimed Stolen Wishes, which received a four-star review in Rolling Stone Magazine; and the 1994 follow-up, Propeller.

The ensuing 18 years’ output has included a live CD, reissues, rarities compilations, and a two-CD set of early demos (2007’s limited-edition Double Exposure) as well as film-soundtrack and tribute-album contributions.

Look for announcements of shows and festivals around the Midwest this summer.
