The Natural Shocks are a relatively new indie rock outfit out of Toronto. The band is comprised of Jim DeLuca (formerly of The Ghost is Dancing), Jeff Geady and Andrew Bartle (Entire Cities). Currently, they are working on new material and are looking for a 2011 release for their debut LP.  The band was involved in our October Indie Machine night at Rancho Relaxo and let me tell you….they absolutely killed it on stage.  Speaking of which, you can check them out December 18th at the El Mocambo.  Their show is not to be missed!  

On another note, the band will be live on The Indie Machine tomorrow night. They will be doing a 2-song acoustic set and interview. Tune in just after 6pm on Fusion Radio. For music and more info on The Natural Shocks, visit them on Myspace.
