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.


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.

Recent history will show that the band are most certainly succeeding. Their reputation as one of the best new live bands in London is already cemented following tours with The Garden and Fat White Family and shows with The Fall, King Gizzard and more, as well as upcoming shows at Pitchfork Paris, Eurosonic and a support slot with Slaves, all despite not even having released so much as a single.
