Shiner is an American post-hardcore/alternative rock band from Kansas City, Missouri that was active from 1992 to 2003. Shiner (band)_sentence_0

Since 2012 Shiner has been playing several shows a year. Shiner (band)_sentence_1

The band's new record Schadenfreude was released May 8, 2020, with touring to follow that was since cancelled due to COVID-19. Shiner (band)_sentence_2

History Shiner (band)_section_0

The group formed in 1992, and quickly found wide exposure, releasing a vinyl EP in 1993 and touring with acts such as Sunny Day Real Estate, Chore, Jawbox, Season to Risk, The Jesus Lizard, and Girls Against Boys. Shiner (band)_sentence_3

The group released their first LP, Splay (recorded at Steve Albini's Chicago studio) in 1996, and a second album, Lula Divinia the next year. Shiner (band)_sentence_4

Sub Pop took notice, and released a 7" single of the group's songs "Sleep it Off" and "Half Empty". Shiner (band)_sentence_5

Following this the band toured with Hum in 1998. Shiner (band)_sentence_6

A third full-length, Starless, was released on a label run by members of Descendents, Owned and Operated, in 2000. Shiner (band)_sentence_7

A fourth LP, The Egg, would follow before the group broke up in 2002. Shiner (band)_sentence_8

This was recorded and produced at Matt Talbott's recording studio, Great Western Record Recorders in Tolono IL and released by DeSoto Records. Shiner (band)_sentence_9

Shiner broke up in 2003 after more than a year of touring behind The Egg. Shiner (band)_sentence_10

Their story was by no means an unusual one; they simply ran their course, building up a cult fanbase in a decade of releasing music, and reaching the logical endpoint of that arc. Shiner (band)_sentence_11

The album "The Egg" grew an audience over time "Yet a funny thing tends to happen when an album is left alone for several years. Shiner (band)_sentence_12

As file-sharing and social media grew in the time after The Egg was released, so did its stature" Shiner (band)_sentence_13

Josh Newton is the guitar/synth player/mastermind for Sie Lieben Maschinen with Jason Gerken on drums. Shiner (band)_sentence_14

Allen Epley is in The Life and Times. Shiner (band)_sentence_15

Shiner's newest record, Schadenfreude, was released May 8, 2020. Shiner (band)_sentence_16

The single "Life as a Mannequin" was released February 28, 2020. Shiner (band)_sentence_17

The subsequent tour was postponed due to COVID-19. Shiner (band)_sentence_18

The band also has the song "Third Gear Scratch" included on the soundtrack of the video game Saints Row 2. Shiner (band)_sentence_19
