The UK rock band Shame have announced a new album, Food For Worms, the follow-up to Drunk Tank Pink, which came out at the beginning of 2021. It’s been billed as a more expansive sound for the band, and they recruited esteemed producer Flood to record it with them. In a press release, bandleader Charlie Steen called it “the Lamborghini of Shame records.”

The songs were written in preparation for a pair of small shows that took place last year where they would play entirely new material; they then recorded the album while on a European festival run. Today, they’re sharing its lead single “Fingers Of Steel.” It comes with a music video directed by James Humby. “Self-obsession, social media flagellation and death can all be seen in this Oscar-nominated performance,” Steen noted. “No one’s ever done a video like this before and when you watch it, you’ll see why. Think Casablanca, but in color, and better.”
