shame share new single ‘This Side of the Sun’. shame have shared brand new single ‘This Side of the Sun’, premiered today on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6 Music show, alongside a new self-directed video.
The track is the band’s first new music since the release of their acclaimed second album Drunk Tank Pink (“‘Drunk Tank Pink’ confirms shame’s status as one of the most exciting bands at the forefront of British music.” – NME) in January of this year via Dead Oceans.
On ‘This Side of the Sun’, the band note:
“The whole song came together on the day we recorded it at the studio. It’s also the first live recording we’ve ever done, we didn’t want it to sound overworked. It’s a pure banger, listen with a piña colada in your left hand.”
Fresh from a run of summer festivals, including headlining London’s Wide Awake, the new single arrives just ahead of shame’s November headline tour, which kicks off on the November 9. The band will also head off on a North American tour in February of next year.
