Post-punk group Shame from Brixton formed when members Eddie Green, Charlie Forbes, Josh Finerty, Sean Coyle-Smith and Charlie Steen went to school together, gaining free rehearsal spaces and advice from other musicians centered around their local pub. While rejecting the concept of rockstars and denouncing elements of the laddish indie scene, they still prepare to tour the world to their mass fanbase over the course of 2018.
They released their debut album Songs of Praise this January via Dead Oceans, which united critics in their positive responses. It is already an early contender for album of the year by many publications; NME called it “invigorating”, while The Quietus noted it as “ambitious and ferocious” and Clash stated “Every line feels like a mini-manifesto, screamed from someone used to be kicked out to the sidelines.”
Their hectic live shows reflect their history sharing a hometown with the infamous performers Fat White Family as they exhibit such energy and vigor, their shows are unmissable.introducing / shame
