Punks on a farm
Today they’ve announced that their debut album is done; has a title, a release date and a front cover which shows the band cradling some pigs. ‘Songs of Praise’ will be coming out via Dead Oceans on 12 January.
As a companion to that news they’ve just shared a new track, ‘One Rizla’. The video for which is more ‘Countryfile’ than ‘Song of Praise’.
Of the song, frontman Charlie Steen comments:
“It was the first song we wrote. I think that’s reflected in the simplicity of it. It’s honest and raw, whilst attempting a stab at number one in the pop charts across the eastern hemisphere.”
Here are Shame mucking – literally – about on a farm.
