Shed Seven have unveiled their first music in 14 years with the single ‘Room in My House‘ – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
Having recently signed to BMG, the Yorkshire band are set to make one of indie-rock’s most triumphant returns this winter by launching first new album in 16 years and then embarking on a tour that’s seen them shift more tickets than ever before.
Shed Seven were one of the leading lights of Britpop with two gold albums and 15 Top 40 singles under their belt. The band’s new album ‘Instant Pleasures’, which is released on November 10 and produced by legendary producer Youth from Killing Joke (Kate Bush, U2, Depeche Mode and The Charlatans) has seen enough pre-orders to have made it a Top 10 chart album if it had been released any week so far this year.
‘Instant Pleasures’ is the most fitting title for their fifth album. Frontman Rick Witter remarks that it works in two ways. Not only is it a comment on our tech-obsessed, social media crazy, instantaneous world, it’s also a literal tongue-in-cheek reference to the tracks themselves.
The first single to be taken from the album is ‘Room In My House’ – a thunderous indie-rock anthem with Rick Witter’s distinctive vocals that wouldn’t sound out of place on their classic 1996 album ‘A Maximum High’.
Shed Seven are Rick Witter (vocals), Joe Johnson (guitar, keyboards), Paul Banks (guitar, keyboards), Tom Gladwin (bass), Alan Leach (drums).
