South London band Shame reveal new video for ‘Tasteless’

As 2016 saw South London five piece Shame make a stand to attention with their breathlessly unhinged punk rock and wildly unbound live shows, 2017 is the year that they intend to step it up notch.

To get things going, the band have shared the video for the snarling anthem ‘Tasteless’, directed by lead singer Charlie Steen alongside Lou Smith. In Steen’s own words: “There always seems to be comfort in the collapsed, the constant pursuit for oblivion.

“What we portray is the detachment from what we have created ourselves, the willingness to destroy and demean it through stabbing, spray painting and eventually burning. All for one man’s slight amusement.

“It is a comment on removing oneself from thought and reasoning and accepting how nothing is truly permanent, nothing is completely original and only by understanding this can progression be made. The only boundary being reality itself, something many tend to avoid.”


Shame continue to cement themselves as a must see live act, beginning a full UK headline tour, see the live dates below.
