The Garden has announced an all-ages show at Mohawk Outdoor in Austin on Sunday, December 5. Tickets are being sold for only $16, with doors opening to the public at 6:30 pm and the show commencing at 7:30 pm.
Identical twins Wyatt (bass & vocals) and Fletcher (drums) Shears AKA The Garden, is a west coast bass-and-drums indie punk rock duo from Orange County, California. The band was formed in 2011 at ages 17 from their previous band MHV, but decided to leave and pursue The Garden, named as a metaphor to growing and evolving. The twins had many influences growing up in the hardcore music of Saccharine Trust, the Minutemen, and Killing Joke, and sharing quirky inside humor of bands like Dead Milkmen, They Might Be Giants, and Ween.
After modeling briefly for Yves Saint Laurent, the duo released a debut cassette titled Everything Is Perfect in 2012, with The Life and Times of a Paperclip and the EP Rules appearing the following summer on Burger Records. The Garden toured extensively in 2014 and 2015, stopping in Tokyo, the U.S., and Europe. In the fall of 2015, they issued the freewheeling, 17-track electro-punk LP Haha, a split production between Burger and Epitaph Records.
The Garden’s self-produced Epitaph follow-up, Mirror Might Steal Your Charm, arrived in 2018 featuring a slightly more guitar-driven sound. After collaborating with Mac DeMarco on the 2019 single “Thy Mission,” the brothers returned in early 2020 with the typically irreverent Kiss My Super Bowl Ring, which featured guest spots from Ariel Pink and Le1f, among others.
