SHAME have signed to new label Dead Oceans and to celebrate, they’ve only gone and made their track ‘Visa Vulture more widely available’!
Long-time fans of SHAME will no doubt already be familiar with the song, which is a bit of a tongue in cheek, ahem, “ode” to Theresa May with the refrain of “won’t you let me stay” just being all the more chilling in light of political events in the last twelve months (and what might happen in a couple of days time).
In a statement, they said of the track: “We wrote Visa Vulture when May was only Home Secretary and we’re happy to make it widely available on the eve of probably the most important election we’ll ever vote in as a rallying cry, a wish that we’ll never have to pen another Tory bashing song for at least another 5 years come June 8th”.
As well as signing to a new label and officially releasing the track, SHAME have also announced a new bunch of tour dates. They’ll be off around the UK and Europe for a headline tour in October, and you can see all their forthcoming shows here.
Listen to ‘Visa Vulture’ below.
SHAME will play Latitude (13th-16th July), Pukkelpop (16th-19th August) and Lowlands (18th-20th August), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
