shame are quickly becoming a favorite of ours. We simply can't resist good, heavy post punk, and shame deliver that in excess. The UK band's latest single, "Six-Pack," cranks up the noise and aggression, but also goes heavily psychedelic. This is a loud and extremely fuzzed out song with guitars that sound like they are having a tantrum. "Six-Pack" is a delicious burst of guitar noise punctuated with Charlie Steen's vocals that are just dripping with animosity. If this sounds like your type of thing, it's going to be impossible not to adore this song.
Charlie Steen says of the new song:
“‘Six-Pack’ is essentially the opposite of a Room 101; instead it’s a room where all your wildest desires can come true and will be showered upon you. Be it commodities, self-obsession, foods and B-lister celebrities, it’ll all be there if you want it to. You’ve done time behind bars and now you’re making time in-front of them. It’s time to make up for anything you’ve lost or wasted, it’s time to get it all.”
You can watch the video for "Six-Pack" below. Food for Worms is due out February 24 on Dead Oceans, and can be pre-ordered here. For more on shame, check out the band's Facebook and Twitter. Upcoming tour dates are below the video.
