Formed in 1995 in Karlstad, Sweden by Rob Coffinshaker, these graveyard country pioneers have been steadily putting out records, most of which have now become highly sought-after collector items. The Coffinshakers successfully merged the imagery of German expressionist cinema with traditional country sounds of Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, occasionally flirting with Ennio Morricone -style melodies and the 60's surf-garage sounds of The Ventures. Topped with full-bodied lyrics and Rob Coffinshaker's haunting, low register voice, this combination gained them a cult following in the late 90's and 2000's, and they even creeped up to the Finnish top 40 with their self-titled album in 2007.
Svart Records are proud to announce the official Coffinshakers vinyl reissues, which have been in the works for a couple of years now. These reissues include the full length albums We Are The Undead (1998) and The Coffinshakers (2007), both of which come in repro-sleeves with original artwork. There's also a deluxe box set edition titled "The Curse of the Coffinshakers 1996-2016", which includes both albums, 2 bonus LPs (From the Crypt - Rare and Unreleased vol. I and vol. II) and a thick booklet with a lengthy interview and archive material. The bonus LPs are only available in the box set and they include rare compilation tracks, EP releases and a handful of unreleased tunes from Rob Coffinshaker's personal vaults.
