The legendary rock juggernaut Shock Value has made a triumphant return with their electrifying EP, 'When the Lightning Strikes'! Harnessing the inspiration of music giants such as Machine Gun Kelly, Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, Sueco, Linkin Park, and Green Day, Shock Value's presence is undeniable. Boasting a dream team lineup including the captivating vocals of Nick Bader, Natt Rice shredding on lead guitar, Nick Roach's hypnotic rhythm guitar, Corey Gross laying down mesmerizing bass lines, and Zach Dresch's thunderous drums - this fierce ensemble was born in Sioux Falls in 2023. Each member brings a unique flavour to their sonic melting pot resulting in irresistible driving rhythms, high-octane guitar riffs, and heart-pumping choruses that immediately capture the soul.

'When Lightning Strikes' is full of electrifying rhythms and powerful tunes that take you by storm, igniting the spark of youthful rebellion within!

Get ready to unleash your teenage musical fury, as Shock Value returns triumphantly with their latest music compilation, 'When Lightning Strikes'! This rock extravaganza delivers a pulsating punch of punk energy straight to the core of your musical soul, beginning with the album's breakthrough track, "Rockstar." The excitement doesn't stop there - with the highly anticipated "Crash Landing," Shock Value takes us on an electrifying journey through the music scene, inspiring fans to keep pushing forward and crafting a narrative that encourages hard work without focusing on outcomes.

The mood takes a distinct turn with "Dirtbag," delving into the feelings of discouragement and demotivation we sometimes experience. It explores the moments when our sense of self gets challenged and humbled by the all-too-familiar whispers of doubt and external judgments. Though it presents a stark contrast to the preceding tracks, this number is significant in its portrayal of negativity and self-doubt. As the album unfolds, "Expensive" and "Paradise" weave a captivating love ballad that reflects on life's harsh realities and reveals an unexpected twist in the narrative. We lose ourselves entirely and find our way back to our true selves. Transcending previous notions of adversity, 'Til I Figure It Out' emphasizes that sometimes breaking rules or indulging in reckless behaviour can also lead to moments of reinvention.

Looking beyond its rage-filled origins, 'This Time' serves as a testament to determination, purpose, and the unstoppable power of a roaring comeback. And lastly, as "Nightmare," "It's Okay (Not To Be Okay)," and "My Life Story" reach their culmination in this exhilarating album journey, listeners are left with bated breath, eagerly anticipating what Shocking Value has in store for their ever-evolving musical saga.
