Fiery post-punk with feisty attitude!
London fivesome shame (with lowercase s) built, in no time at all, a reputation as one of the most dynamic and exciting live acts of the United Kingdom. Following their five-star debut ‘Songs Of Praise’ and its successor ‘Drunk Tank Pink’ , they have now released the very vital ‘Food For Worms’, their “Lamborghini of shamerecords”.
On Wednesday, April 5, they will present their album in AB.
"The band has called ‘Food For Worms’ a celebration of life, and it accurately mirrors the weird, layered, loud, erratic, sometimes rapturous human experience, without too much pretence or over-dependence on polish. In an industry where plenty of acts are gunning for streams or TikTok fodder, Shame’s latest offering is a refreshing refuge for those thirsting for music that stirs you up live, and allows you to play witness to a band’s evolution of sound."
"The British rockers’ third album peels away from the talky post-punk pack, emphasizing melody, ramshackle piano, and reflections on friendship."
"Shame let go of their punky roots on an accomplished, purposefully imperfect record"
"Dubbed “the Lamborghini of Shame records” by vocalist Charlie Steen, not only do Shame sound rawer and more unbridled than they’ve ever done before on ‘Food for Worms’, but they also might have produced the finest album of their career in the process."
“‘Food for Worms’ van Shame: de ziel van een punker die van een vuistslag of kniestoot poëzie maakt”
“Pour son troisième album, Food for Worms, Shame a cherché à se réinventer. Un disque plus varié, moins post-punk, provoqué par électrochocs et produit par une légende.”
“Met eigenzinnige songstructuren, tempowissels en dynamiek breekt Shame uit zijn postpunkhokje, om met de brokstukken iets nieuws en interessants te bouwen.”
