Written in Snowdonia, Wales, and recorded at Treehouse Studios in Chesterfield with renowned producer and Engineer, Jim Pinder (Bullet For My Valentine, Machine Head, While She Sleeps), Greater Than combines hip-hop and metal, alternative rock and urban elements. This is heavy music for the adventurous and open-minded. Matt Heafy of Trivium – one of Shvpes’ biggest inspirations – collaborates on the song, ‘Rain’.

Since releasing their highly-praised 2016 debut Pain. Joy. Ecstasy. Despair., Shvpes have been riding the wave of acclaim that rapidly attached itself to their name, touring Europe with some of the biggest bands in hard rock (TriviumBullet For My ValentineBlessthefall) and appearing at festivals the world over.
