High Noon - who does not automatically think of the classic western movie with Garry Cooper and Grace Kelly?
High Noon - also a metaphor for “time of decision”
SHAKRA’s 10th album couldn't have a better title: this is about something, something big, something decisive, all or nothing, now or never!
It's not as if it wasn't as important in the past years for SHAKRA, especially after “Back On Track” (2011) made it with #2 to the best chart-entry for the band so far. Continuing their success story - two years later SHAKRA got their well-deserved top position with “Powerplay”.
Well then? Mark Fox is back on vocals and the new album sounds incredibly powerful, grounded and fresh – It is like he had never left…
There are 12 songs on High Noon, a brilliant ballad and 11 straight rock-songs with a catchy tune – guaranteed!
No experiments, just essentials. 100% pure SHAKRA!
High Noon – not just another album from a band, which was founded more than 20 years ago out in the boondocks of the Emmental, but THE Album by SHAKRA!
“I'm not just proud of High Noon, but really extremely damn proud and very, very happy with it!” says Thomas. “You always go to work on something new with the resolve to give it your very best… - and it is up to the fans to give a judgement!” Thom concludes. “But we all have a really good feeling about High Noon and are looking forward to finally playing the songs live!”
