"Jonet's voice lit up the room the second she started singing with her extremely catchy songs... The whole audience was in love with her by the end of the set and I left a big Jonet fan."

Shannon McArdle
Shannon McArdle released her second solo album, Fear the Dream of Axes for Bar-None Records on July 31, 2012.

The Mendoza Line made the move to New York City from Athens, GA in 1999, establishing themselves as a rollicking, well-read rock band with a love for The Replacements, Bob Dylan, and the Velvet Underground. Along with a cast of contributors, the Mendoza Line recorded a remarkable body of work that wrestled with the intoxication of life and love on the edge of the new millennium. When Shannon McArdle left the Mendoza Line in 2007, she was also leaving behind a marriage to a fellow band member.

Shannon McArdle headed out on her own in 2008 with an unflinching report from the frontlines of divorce called Summer of the Whore (Bar-None). Music critic, Greil Marcus posted on Salon.com, “Debbie Harry had her finger on this trigger in Blondie's "Rip Her to Shreds," but Shannon McArdle makes you think she didn't pull it.”

Fear the Dream of Axes introduces us to a self-possessed Shannon McArdle who has fertility, Crown Heights, mythology, and murder mysteries on her mind. If the connection is lost on you, McArdle will make sense out of it for you in this unabashedly experimental marriage of pop, rock, folk, and more. The album is heavily influenced by masterful productions such as Marianne Faithfull's Broken English and Harry Nilsson'sPussy Cats. Former Mendoza Line member, Adam D. Gold takes the reins once again as engineer and producer.
