Skintight, blowing their minds With your finger on the trigger, you're a cold heart killer Been a while in-between drinks I can feel it in my chest Yeah, you burn like liquor. I do, wasted on you Spending my time playing the fool. Warning signs eat me alive You can feed me to the wolves when you're done in the morning All them eyes circling you Girl, it's callous and cruel And you know what you're doing. I lose, wasted on you Spending your time playing these fools
Hold Me. What Hearts.

NSgfvlYxOuh. ee you tomorrow Leeds. After selling 400 million copies this year, we’re pleased to say Rough Trade have accepted our bribe and given us album of 2018. Tour starts in two days. shame is feeling broken.
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. Songs of Praise threatens to storm into those god-fearing living rooms like an uninvited black sheep, staining the image of safe Britain with post-punk hymns of disgust. Emerging from the same South London pub that housed the squat-chic reprobates Fat White Family, Shame are also indebted to the Fall and Gang of Four. Like FWF, they’re cocky enough to reanimate their ancestors’ corpses.

Has anyone else noticed how the phrase 'what a shame' comes up, like, a lot? To illustrate this point, we made some crappy mood boards. The phrase actually appears at least four times, if you include, "Look! He's having a breakdown, oh what a let down, a shame, I think he might die!" - on "She's American" (which, in turn, is similar to the line "Oh, what a let down" on first album track "Settle Down". Obviously it's deliberate, especially considering one of the tour t-shirts has the above lyrics to "Paris" on it. But what could its significance be? Is it an acknowledgement of how everyone is a f cking mess? Could it be challenging apathetic attitudes?
