UK band Shame have signed to Dead Oceans, and with the upcoming UK election have chosen to make their track “Visa Vulture” widely available.
Ardent fans will be familiar with song and it’s sentiment – “Visa Vulture” is a tongue-in-cheek ode to Theresa May, a darkly comical and raw take on the the tense political climate. The refrain “won’t you let me stay“, is used to chilling effect.
“We wrote Visa Vulture when May was only Home Secretary and we’re happy to make it widely available on the eve of probably the most important election we’ll ever vote in as a rallying cry, a wish that we’ll never have to pen another Tory bashing song for at least another 5 years come (election day)”, says the band. As always, with their music and live shows alike, provocation is used as a tool for discussion.
Having already cemented themselves as a must-see live act, Shame have an impressive run of dates coming up in the European festival circuit, including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, and Latitude.
