Shudder is the fourth studio album by American rock band Bayside, released on September 30, 2008. Prior to its release, singer Anthony Raneri described the album as having a more alternative sound than their previous record The Walking Wounded. The title comes from a lyric in the track "I Can’t Go On".
On September 5, 2008, the album was leaked onto various file-sharing sites. The first single, "No One Understands", generated significant attention from fans through the band's MySpace page. The band had also played "I Think I’ll Be Ok" at shows during the summer of 2008.
Around September 22, 2008, the album was put up to stream on the band's MySpace page. On October 4, 2008, the music video for the song "No One Understands" was posted for viewing on the band’s official MySpace page.
"You’ve Already Been" was added as an iTunes bonus track, and later appeared on the Take Action! Vol. 8 compilation CD/DVD.
