Shame share video for ‘Lampoon’

by the partae

On their debut album, the UK rock group separates themselves from their peers,
imbuing their post-adolescent rage with wit and, crucially, a self-effacing
awareness that they may never succeed.


The UK’s most exhilarating new band.

Beneath the sneering vocals and warring guitars, there’s a finely attuned sense
of songcraft to the post-punk of south London band Shame.


Today, youthful British misanthropes Shame share the video for their song ‘Lampoon‘, one of the many highlights off their freshly released debut, Songs of Praise, out now on Dead Oceans via Inertia Music. The footage from the video comes from the band’s first North American tour back in November of 2017, surely a moment that remains burned into the memories of anyone lucky enough to have caught them perform.

Australia is finally catching on in terms of understanding the true electricity contained within these five young London lads, who were dubbed one of the breakout acts of Laneway Festival 2018. Of their Sydney sideshow, Happy praised Shame as “a band who have hit the ground sprinting“, and The Brag said of their Laneway appearance: “they were one of those customary successful Laneway gambles – an excellent band with a tiny following in this country who proved as dynamic and interesting as the bigger acts booked.
