[From Last.fm] Shocore is a band from Vancouver, Canada, centred on Cory White (vocals) and Sho Murray (guitars). The rest of the band has been quite fluid over time. Shocore formed in 2001 upon the demise of Cory’s band DDT. Cory had worked on a record for Sho’s previous band, Nefro.
They were selected by radio station CFOX as part of their “Vancouver Seeds” promotion to find up-and-coming local acts. The single Bonecracker got extensive airplay in 2001 and by May 2001 they had started to become a popular live act, with Bonecracker on radio throughout Canada. In September, their album Devil Rock Disco was released, along with the single Rudy. The video for Bonecracker received some attention and they toured Ontario and other parts of eastern Canada throughout September. A full national tour followed in December. By 2002, Bonecracker was heard on a number of TV shows, most notably “Smallville”.
In June 2003, the band released the album Evilution with the lead single Right On. The album featured a number of guest artists.
In 2007, the band were reported to be working on a new album, featuring songs Lost in Austin, Death of Me and a cover of The Devil Went Down To Georgia. The band had engaged the services of Kim Cabral on bass, formerly of Children Of Tragedy.
