Wicketkeeper reveal new single ‘I Can’t Believe’

Their debut album ‘Shonk’ arrives on Friday.

With their debut album ‘Shonk’ landing this Friday (16th October), London/Margate trio Wicketkeeper are giving us the final taste of what to expect, sharing new single ‘I Can’t Believe’.

“This song is about giving up on your hopes and dreams because you’re old as shit,” vocalist Simon Moxley explains.

Talking about their forthcoming record, bassist Ryan Oxley adds, “This was always about three friends with no songs, getting into a practice room in North London and seeing what came of it. The only caveat being, it had to make us smile. None of us could play drums, there was no conversation about ‘what should we sound like?’, this is just how we sounded when we all plugged in and played together. Over a few years we got together when we could, and even played a few gigs here and there, and then came ‘Shonk’. Yeah, sure, by the time it comes out it will have been years since some of these songs were written but it’s still those same three friends, those same three smiles, just now with 14 songs (and some). From the practice room to the, well, practice room.”
