Raised alongside the California coastline in Santa Barbara, SHIFLETT kicked off his career in seminal pop-punk groups like NO USE FOR A NAME and ME FIRST & THE GIMME GIMMES.  As the ’90s gave way to the 2000s, he joined the FOO FIGHTERS’ lineup. He’s since become one of the band’s longest-running members, flying the flag of modern rock & roll for two decades.  Along the way, he’s also become the host of a biweekly Americana podcast, Walking the Floor, as well as the driving force behind solo projects like CHRIS SHIFLET & THE DEAD PEASANTS. Hard Lessons follows West Coast Town as the second solo record to bear his name alone, and it’s perhaps the most SHIFLETT-sounding album in his entire catalog, with songs that nod to the classic Bakersfield sound one minute and KEITH RICHARDS’ greasy guitar style the next.
