Shelter is a Hare Krishna Melodic hardcore/Pop punk band formed by Ray Cappo.[1] Because of the usual Hare Krishna and Hindu-oriented messages in its lyrics, Shelter's genre is often dubbed krishnacore.[2][3][4]

Brief recent history[edit]

In 2001, the band released the album The Purpose, The Passion. In 2002, with a new drummer and a new guitarist, the band toured Europe and the eastern United States again in support of The Purpose, The Passion before going on extended hiatus.[5]

In 2005, Ray Cappo recorded a new 11-track album entitled Eternal with 10 new songs and a re-make of "In Defense of Reality." Eternal was released in May 2006 by Good Life Recordings. Ray also did a European tour with a few members of Dutch hardcore bands functioning as the band.[6]

Shelter played 2 "Reunion" shows in 2011: Göteborg, Sweden on 16 June and Reading, PA on Sunday, 26 June.

The line-up for the Reunion shows were:
