Speaking about their new album – which has already been previewed with the tracks ‘Alphabet’, ‘Water In The Well’, ‘Snow Day’ and ‘Nigel Hitter’ – Shame frontman Charlie Steen said that it emerged after last year’s coronavirus lockdown proved to be a difficult adjustment for the band, having spent the last few years touring.
“When you’re exposed to all of that for the first time you think you’re fucking indestructible,” Steen said. “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.”
