Shark Island Giving It Another Shot
Those fans, their kids and a whole new generation of rock and rollers will be ecstatic to hear that Shark Island is finally resurfacing after over a decade apart with an explosive new collection, Gathering Of The Faithful, that features 13 exciting new tracks co-composed by lead singer Richard Black and guitarist Spencer Sercombe, who originally met in high school and formed the group (originally known as The Sharks) in 1979.
Gathering has already caught fire in Europe, where Shark Island enjoys a rabid cult status, and it is currently available on iTunes and other major outlets.
Following in the tradition of Van Halen, Motley Thru and other L.A. bands, Shark Island was also the house band for several years at the world famous Gazzari’s on the Sunset Strip. Before signing their major label deal at Epic, they independently released three albums, Altar Ego, S’cool Buss, and Bastille Day: Alive At The Whiskey. In 1989, their signature tunes “Dangerous” and “Father Time” were featured in the movie and on the soundtrack for Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Their song “My City” was also featured on the soundtrack for the film Point Break.
