Shame Post New Track Nigel Hitter

Thursday, 07 January 2021 Written by Jon Stickler

Shame have dropped a new single, Nigel Hitter.

The track finds the London band continuing to evolve from the post-punk sound on 2018's 'Songs Of Praise' with more punchy guitars and skewed rhythms. It comes paired with a deepfake video directed by Maxim Kelly, viewable below.

Nigel Hitter will appear along with their previously shared cuts Alphabet, Water in the Well and Snow Day on the quintet's forthcoming second LP, 'Drunk Tank Pink', out on January 15 via Dead Oceans. Lead singer Charlie Steen said:

"The song is at the heart of what 'Drunk Tank Pink' is about. After we finished touring I was left with a lot of silence as I stumbled around trying to figure out the daily routine. On top of that, I was confronting my subconscious at night through a series of intense dreams which left me in a daze during the day. Nigel Hitter feels like a cathartic expression of that period."

Shame are due to embark on a socially distanced tour in February, followed by a show at London's Electric Brixton on April 22.
