Shame announce new album 'Drunk Tank Pink'

Having spent the last few months teasing us with new material, Shame have now announced their plans for a new studio album, arriving early next year.

The new full-length 'Drunk Tank Pink' will feature the previous shared singles 'Alphabet' and 'BiL', is being previewed by the new track 'Water In The Well', and is set to be released on the 15th January via Dead Oceans.

Speaking about the new LP, frontman Charlie Steen said, “When you’re exposed to all of that for the first time you think you’re fucking indestructible. After a few years you reach a point where you realise everyone needs a bath and a good night’s sleep sometimes.

“You become very aware of yourself and when all of the music stops, you’re left with the silence. And that silence is a lot of what this record is about. The common theme when I was catching up with my mates was this identity crisis everyone was having. No one knows what the fuck is going on.”

While guitarist Sean Coyle-Smith added, “It didn’t matter that we’d just come back off tour thinking, ‘How do we deal with reality? I had mates that were working in a pub and they were also like, ‘How do I deal with reality?’ Everyone was going through it.

“For this album I was so bored of playing guitar. The thought of even playing it was mind-numbing. So I started to write and experiment in all these alternative tunings and not write or play in a conventional ‘rock’ way.”
