Shame

Songs of Praise (Dead Oceans)

Sold Out

RELEASED: 12th January 2018
Sky blue coloured vinyl LP

The London-based five-piece, Shame, built their band from a foundation of DIY ethos, carving out a niche in the South London music scene, citing The Fall and Wire among their biggest musical influences. Shame thrive on confrontation, and their thrashing post punk can now be heard with seething intensity in Songs Of Praise, their Dead Oceans debut. 
From ‘Gold Hole’, a tongue-in-cheek takedown of rock narcissism, to lead track ‘Concrete’ detailing the overwhelming moment of realising a relationship is doomed, to the frustrated ‘Tasteless’ taking aim at the monotony of people droning through their day-to-day, Songs Of Praise never pauses to catch its breath.  The limited coloured vinyl edition of Songs of Praise is available for pre-sale now.
