Released in early 1990, Shake Your Money Maker peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, and is the band’s best selling album, having sold over 5 million copies.
Two of the album’s singles – “Hard to Handle” and “She Talks to Angels” – reached No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. Three other songs – “Jealous Again”, “Twice As Hard” and “Seeing Things” – were also charting singles in the U.S.
After a hiatus from 2002-2005, the band regrouped and toured for several years. After touring in 2013, the band announced another breakup in 2015 when the Robinson brothers had a money dispute and vowed to never speak again.
The two have apparently buried the hatchet.
“I’m thrilled and blessed to be playing with my brother, celebrating the music we’ve made and bringing our lives together full circle,” said Chris.
“First and foremost, I’m really happy to have my brother back in my life,” he said. “To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids, is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could’ve never fathomed.”
