Who is MR SHIRAZ? I don't think that mystery will ever actually be solved and it's a question that will probably generate multiple, misleading answers every time it's asked. Why's that, you ask? Well, when asked for some facts about the band, this is what they gave us...


Bassist Tori Shiraz is a philosophy genius and possibly the most intelligent person in the world, whereas frontman Mikey Shiraz once released a book of confessions of all the terrible things he's done . His mother refuses to read it. Lead guitarist Tim Shiraz looks like everyone in the world, apparently. Examples are Edward Norton, the dead body from Stand By Me, Cameron from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the mum off 90’s kids show Dinosaurs and many more. And of course, there's a Facebook page.

Despite being absolutely ridiculous, they should also be taken rather seriously. They were the winner of the best single at the Pure Rawk Awards for their track 'NO Prophecy' and they were also nominated for best bassist, best frontman and best EP. In 2016 they are once again nominated in the Best EP category. Heck. Their live shows are somewhat hyper and probably explains why they've played with Heck a few times now, as well as with the likes of Bouncing Souls, Skindred, The Bronx,  Therapy?, Alkaline Trio, Joey Cape, Teenage Bottlerocket, The Ataris, The Hell, Brawlers and a full UK tour with Snuff, Ugly Kid Joe and Bam Margera's Fuckface Impossible (You know, the one from Jackass who lets off fireworks in his parents' bedroom).

After the success of their 2016 release '21 Grams Mr Shiraz invite you all to join them for their latest EP 'Mountains Of Kong'. It's an EP that defines the band right here right now with easily their most personal release to date.

Recorded and mixed by Andy Hawkins (Maximo Park, Blood Red Shoes, Hawk Eyes, Agnostic Front, The Dickies, Flogging Molly, Sugarcult, Motion City Soundtrack, Matchbook Romance, The Pigeon Detectives, Ginger of The Wildhearts) at The Nave in Leeds and mastered by Dave Draper. 'Mountains Of Kong is 4 tracks of groove filled punk with plenty of mosh, rhythm and bounce for anyone to get into. The EP is out May 26th on the band's own Wooderson Records label, with artwork courtesy of Dylan Riley.

You can, and we highly recommend that you do, listen to 'Mountains Of Kong' for yourself.
