Les Anglais de Shame viennent de Brixton, banlieue sud de Londres. A 20 ans d’âge moyen à peine, le groupe a su s’imposer et incarne la nouvelle scène du rock indé avec leurs morceaux entre punk et rock travaillé dans les bars. Les amis d’enfance peuvent être définis comme adorables, sombres et facétieux à la fois, sans limites, le quintet promet de vous donner une bonne claque. Repérés pour leurs lives survoltés, le groupe entretient une relation privilégiée avec la scène, leur show dégage une énergie unique et contagieuse.

Leur second album Drunk Tank Pink sortira le 15 janvier 2021.

Whenever any kind of ‘progress’ is made in our society, it is naturally met with a reactionary group (most likely dominated by the older generation) who will fight to keep things unchanged, comfortable, safe.

Then there is Shame, five 19 year olds who have such a scent of the old-school, the original and the raw, regardless of how prescribed it may seem, that it’s invigorating. The excitement and the energy of the band lies in the collective, the reactionary force that will get the kids out from behind their screens and behind the band.

The UK rock group have announced the follow-up to their 2018 debut Songs of Praise. The new one, Drunk Tank Pink, is out January 15 via Dead Oceans. The album was produced by James Ford, and in a statement, the band revealed that it was partially informed by the mandatory end of live performances. “You become very aware of yourself and when all of the music stops, you’re left with the silence,” frontman Charlie Steen said in a statement. “And that silence is a lot of what this record is about.”
