Shane Hickey Volumen 1
Shane Hickey

As the introverted boy genius of VOLUMEN, it most often falls to Shane to write the songs that make the whole world sing and the young girls cry. When he’s not singing about underwater lovemaking or playing video games for 36 hours straight (passions which, as reliable sources inform, he enjoys more or less equally), Shane can usually be found pressing wildflowers in his lockable Holly Hobby diary (combination: 3-23-16) or walking and reading Popular Mechanics at the same time. He is also a world class mental archivist of nearly-forgotten pop acts of the early 1980s and an unrepentant fan of some of the fruitiest music ever recorded. In fact, the last male bonding I did with Shane was over our shared love of the Art of Noise, and the Magnetic Fields album Holiday.

Here's some articles and other random press for your viewing pleasure.

Title: Science Faction Review
Author: Jim Merrett

Volumen - Science Faction
By Jim Merrett
Fermented in remote Montana, think of this as a cheeky, potent moonshine. An aromatic nose of Violent Femmes with grisly, full-bodied Kyuss riffage and The Cramps-style trashing about the kick that hit the back of your throat. Halfway point ‘The Launch’ even toys with OK Computer-era Radiohead. Beneath the creepy hick exterior a certain sophistication bubbles. These guys know their influences and while they toil in a relative backwater, the rest of the world has turned back on itself, digging up revival after revival, bringing them back to speed. And so redneck new-wave doesn’t sound that unlikely. The excitement mounts to the point you can feel the band playing through wide grins. Crank it up and enjoy.
