They have released records on Tomlab, Absolutely Kosher, have a record on Constellation entitled Villainaire, and have backed up Carla Bozulich, Craig Wedren, and Xiu Xiu on "The Promise", "Fag Patrol", and the Xiu Xiu/Sweet Science EP.

Kingdom Shore was formed in March of 2006. Blurring the lines between the punk rock that grew out of 1980's hardcore, avant and art rock, electro-acoustic music, noise, old world Gospel, and contemporary and left-field music, the current line-up includes Nathan Medema (pedals, found-sounds and field recordings, laptop, electronics, samples, processing, rich artist), and Simon Guibord (laptop, electronics, Korg MS-20), Ryan Hough (violin), Jasmine Landau (violin), Gerg Horvath (Double-Bass), and Mark Molnar (cello, loops, and electronics).

The new album, ...and all the dogs to shark, is available on CD and 180 gram audiophile vinyl through Black Bough.
