Vinyl LP pressing. Every working musician has had their life turned upside down by Covid-19. For The Shivas, who had recently released a new LP and normally keep a rigorous touring schedule, it was a particularly screeching halt. "We were about to go to SXSW, the following weekend was Treefort in Boise, and then we were going to open for our friends' band on tour in the US before going to Europe," Jared Molyneux remembers. Then everything just stopped. They were faced with a dilemma. "It forced us to adapt or just quit," Molyneux says. "The reality is that shows are our job." The album that emerged from this new moment finds The Shivas reborn as a band that seems seasoned and perfectly at home with itself. There is a calm, even a hopefulness, to Feels So Good / Feels So Bad that sounds new. The Shivas didn't write or record the album with a particular theme in mind, but one seems to have emerged: where Dark Thoughts was about confronting your demons with fearless self-examination, much of Feels So Good / Feels So Bad is about what happens once you find that peace: how being honest with yourself changes your relationships and your priorities. "I do think it's about acceptance," Leonard says. "There's a weird relaxation that comes with being at peace with things you can't control or have regrets about."
