Shed Seven emerged as one of the big hitters during the heyday of Britpop, their catalogue of classic singles leading to seven Top 20 hits including ‘Going For Gold’, ‘Chasing Rainbows’, ‘Disco Down’ and ‘On Standby’ as well as four Top 10 albums. Their popularity has continued since reforming in 2007, with 2017’s ‘Instant Pleasures’ album debuting at #8 - their highest-charting record in eighteen years.
Shed Seven will return with their first album in more than six years when they release ‘A Matter of Time’ on January 12th 2024 via Cooking Vinyl. Coming as 2024 represents the band’s 30th anniversary together, the album is launched alongside today’s release of the new single ‘Kissing California’ as well as the confirmation of a headline tour this autumn.
Rick Witter adds, “‘Kissing California’ is Shed Seven's summer anthem. It’s essentially a celebration of being alive, and grabbing the opportunity to paint the town red with someone special and have the best of times. It’s the medicine we all need sometimes.”
Shed Seven will play select gigs this summer including Glasgow's Barrowland Ballroom on 26th October.
