Wooden Shjips are an American psychedelic ‘space’ rock band hailing from San Francisco. Formed in 2006, the band are one of the country’s leading experimental exports, pioneering new sounds with each release they sling their fans’ way.
Consisting of Erik ‘Ripley’ Johnson, Dusty Jermier, Nash Whalen, and Omar Ahsanuddin, they’re signed to Thrill Jockey Records and have released four studio albums, their latest being ‘Back to Land’ which dropped in November 2013.
Since, they've been working on a new album - 'V', due for release in May 2018. They'll support the new record with US shows throughout the summer, before heading to the UK and Europe in September. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
