Shame is a five-piece post-punk band from England that are set to release their debut via the fine folks at Dead Oceans. Songs of Praise will see the light of day on January 12th. This tune rocks and I’m looking forward to catching a set while they’re at SXSW.

The track itself is the first song the band wrote together. “I think that’s reflected in the simplicity of it,” Steen states. A song about embracing insecurity as a strength, he continues, “It’s honest and raw, whilst attempting a stab at number one in the pop charts across the Eastern hemisphere.”

The London five piece have swiftly earned a reputation as one of the most visceral and exhilarating live bands in the UK, their combustible shows being honed through a heavy touring schedule in the UK – including an incredible sold out show at the Scala and a personal invite by Billy Bragg to play the Left Field stage at Glastonbury this year. The band is currently bringing their live show to the East Coast, and recently announced 2018 dates as well.
