Shame are back with new track "Snow Day", which arrives as the latest taster of their highly-anticipated second album Drunk Tank Pink.
Lead vocalist Charlie Steen says of the new release, "A lot of this album focuses on the subconscious and dreams, this song being the pivotal moment of these themes. A song about love that is lost and the comfort and displeasure that comes after you close your eyes, fall into sleep, and are forced to confront yourself."
Steen wrote songs for the album from a tiny room he calls 'the womb' (it's painted pink), and tackled topics including the impact the band has had on his mental health, identity crisis and more. He says, "The common theme when I was catching up with my mates was this identity crisis everyone was having. No one knows what the fuck is going on."
Guitarist Sean Coyle-Smith adds, "It didn’t matter that we’d just come back off tour thinking, 'How do we deal with reality!?' I had mates that were working in a pub and they were also like, 'How do I deal with reality!?' Everyone was going through it."
Steen says of the LP, "You become very aware of yourself and when all of the music stops, you’re left with the silence, and that silence is a lot of what this record is about."
