The wait is finally over as Shame unveiled full details of Songs of Praise’s follow up will be released shortly after its three-year anniversary. The band has been hinting at their upcoming record for quite a few months and have even sent out a series of suggestive tweets to build up the anticipation.
Shame released their first single “Alphabet,” back in September. This track is quite a strong album opener, consisting of frontman Charlie Steen’s roaring vocals paired with amplified distorted guitar riffs. The band went on to release a live version of “Born in Luton,” and their follow up single “Water in the Well,” a more toned down number that gradually builds up, fitting well with their previous tracks.
Shame announced a handful of socially-distanced shows around the UK, taking place in February in celebration of their record release. Given the limited amount of space available for each show, fans will be required to pre-order their album, in order to gain access to tickets. Given that these gigs will take place at independent venues, fans have the option of paying more for tickets, in order to keep those spaces afloat.
