Hushdrops "The Static"

Hushdrops "The Static"

Despite having a tragic start to 2021, with the loss of their drummer Joe Camarillo at the age of 52, Hushdrops are preparing to release their third album, The Static, via Pravada Records. 

The trio of John San Juan (Vocals, Guitar), Joe Camarillo (Drums, Vocals), and Jim Shapiro (bass) have been performing together and in bands such as Waco Brothers, NRBQ, Veruca Salt, Material Issue, and more for decades. The finishing touches for this album were completed just after Camarillo's passing and San Juan believes that this album contains some his most free and magical drumming. When asked he had this to say; “Better to celebrate than to mourn him, and he has given us an abundance of very special playing to celebrate.”

You can help Hushdrops, with John Perrin (NRBQ, Josh Caterer) on drums, celebrate the release of The Static and the memory of Joe on December 10th at Blue Island Beer Company.
