The Shell Corporation was formed in 2011 by singer Jan Drees and guitarist Curtiss Lopez. Within a month they recorded a 7” and booked a European tour. Within three months they recorded and released their debut album “Force Majeure”. Extensive touring ensued over the next 9 months before the release of the “Time and Pressure” EP in June 2012 (Solidarity Recordings). More touring across the US and Europe follow as well as more releases, including a split 7” with The Mighty Fine and a track on Solidarity Recording’s Go-Go’s Tribute “Our Lips Are Sealed” along with Masked Intruder..
