For those who may be wondering what the band has been up to, The Shake Ups are working on TWO new musical projects for release in 2017! One will be a My Little Pony-inspired album to follow up last year's popular Rock Candy. Prior to that venture, the band will realize a project inspired by another fandom that has received similar pop culture accolades to MLP: Steven Universe! The Shake Ups In Beach City will fuse the band's signature power-pop stylings with elements from the Steven Universe series to create a brand new collection of family-friendly musical gems. The Shake Ups In Beach City will debut in the spring of 2017. Check out a teaser trailer HERE!
