Shame (Secretly Canadian)
5/8/18

WHAT IT IS: South London school friends Charlie Steen (vocals), Sean Coyle-Smith (guitar), Eddie Green (guitar), Charlie Forbes (drums) and Josh Finerty (bass) formed the punk band in a practice space at the infamous Queen’s Head Pub in Brixton. After extensive U.K. touring and a pivotal show at The Great Escape in 2016, Shame signed with Dead Oceans in early 2017. Soon after, they recorded debut album Songs of Praise—10 tracks with a run time of 39 minutes—which serves as a compression of everything they’re about. “We wanted our first album to be concise and to the point,” says Steen. “No bullshit.”
