Royal Headache Frontman Returns With New Material As Shogun And The Sheets

Thursday, 18 October 2018 Written by Helen Payne

The mononomous Shogun has returned with a new band and new music.

Formerly the frontman of Australian punk band Royal Headache, Shogun has released a debut double a-side single with his new quintet, Shogun and the Sheets. But listeners shouldn't expect the raucous chaos of the old days. "Punk is for squares," the band's Facebook bio notes.

Where Pissing Blood has a distinct, thoughtful soul vibe, Hold On Kid is a faster paced classic rock 'n' roll song, with both working in unison to crystallise the evolution of Shogun as a musician and songwriter, drawing on his own experiences of addiction, hurt and hope. He noted:

“There's no real message in these songs. I think I keep my lyrics ambivalent deliberately. I like it when you can feel a meaning or presence in a song but you can't pinpoint what it is. That way the listener can create their own meaning."

The two tracks are available digitally now, and will be released on limited 7” on November 2.
