Shifter is currently in the process of releasing their first set of songs. Our first single “Watch That Boy” was tracked in Anchorage, AK at Mirror Studios and Mixed at Radio Star in Weed, CA by SYLVIA MASSY and mastered by MAOR APPELBAUM MASTERING.
All members of Shifter come from other local bands such as ROBOTS HELPING CLONES, WICHITA SHADOWS and GLASS HALO. The Anchorage scene has a history of brotherhood between it’s bands. Shifter was actually formed by Ryan Leblanc and Brandon Ballin with the task to fill a 20 minute set for a couple of dates in the 2012 Warped Tour. They had to form a band and write a set just three weeks before the actual dates. Shifter has gone through it’s different incarnations, but one thing has been consistent. Their desire and drive to be original has given them their own unique sound
