With their highly anticipated new album ‘Drunk Tank Pink’ out next week (15th January) via Dead Oceans, Shame are giving us the latest taste of what to expect, releasing new single ‘Nigel Hitter’.
“‘Nigel Hitter’ is one of the vital organs of ‘Drunk Tank Pink’,” frontman Charlie Steen explains. “A necessary pulse. Focused on daily routine, repetition, and how extraordinary any ordinary task seemed to me after coming home from touring. A world of percussion and joy lies within.”
