Shame unveil new track 'Tasteless'

South London five-piece Shame made their debut last year with a handful of critically acclaimed singles. Touring with Fat White Family, the band quickly forged a reputation for themselves with adrenaline fuelled, unapologetically rowdy live shows. But with the release of a provocative new single, 2017 is set to be the year they cement themselves as more than just the new kids of punk-rock.

Unafraid of rocking the establishment, new track Tasteless is a rift-laden anthem cursing the social inertia of today’s troubling times. The rioting bass-lines and post-punk percussion deliver three minutes of fiercely raw sound. Laced with lyrics ready-made for crowds to chant back, it takes the band into another league.  

Lead singer, Charlie Steen explains the thought process behind the song: "Protesting against people's constant acceptance and indifference towards deeply troubling issues within society as well as politics, only seeming to care when it is something that will affect them. A comment disregarding some people's over-sensitivity when a person or group of people speak out about something."

Evidence of their thrilling live reputation is the number of dates already confirmed for this year. Playing over 50 gigs, Shame start by heading to SXSW next week before supporting Warpaint on select dates throughout the month.
