Shame (stylized as shame) are an English post-punk band originally from South London, England. Their debut album Songs of Praise was released on 12 January 2018. This was followed by Drunk Tank Pink on 15 January 2021. The group has received critical acclaim from publications including NME,[1] Paste,[2] and Clash.[3]

History[edit]

Shame released their debut album Songs of Praise on 12 January 2018 through Dead Oceans and was met with critical acclaim. The record currently holds an aggregated score of 83 based on 16 reviews.[4] The album peaked at number 32 on the UK Albums Chart and remained on the chart for two weeks.

In late January 2020, NME reported that Shame was working on their second studio album, and that recording had been complete.[5] On 18 November 2020, the band confirmed that their second studio album, entitled Drunk Tank Pink would come out 15 January 2021, a little more than three years after their debut album.[6] In December 2020, Shame released the single "Snow Day" with an accompanying visualizer from their upcoming album 'Drunk Tank Pink'.
