Shutups by Nate Gilchrest

Off the heels of “Yellowjacket,” here comes Shutups with “Cement Hands,” the second single from their upcoming Every Day I’m Less Zen album.

With the release of the new single, the indie punk duo will be hosting a release party tonight at the Golden Bull with fellow Oakland bands Diesel Dudes, Lofter, New Circle and Rex Ruit.

The song’s title comes from drummer Mia’s childhood nickname for her unintentionally strong punches to her siblings. In context of the song, it means metaphorically getting your heart crushed by a lover’s hands.

Shutups will have additional shows around the Bay Area with the next one being Sunday at Bottom of the Hill with Los Angeles bands Shit Giver and Opinions.
