The fan reaction to the announcement of the Shed Seven album ‘A Matter of Time’ was so strong that the band immediately decided to start 2024 with a bang and release it a week earlier than initially announced – that date now being January 5th. Ticket sales for their October tour were similarly overwhelming, with London, Nottingham, Manchester and Glasgow all selling out in just five minutes and all other shows soon followed, either selling out or running low on tickets. They also headlined a sold-out 6000 capacity show in Millenium Square, Leeds, where the recent single ‘Kissing California’ received as rapturous a reception as the band’s catalogue of hits.

Keeping that momentum at fever pitch, Shed Seven today share the brand new single ‘F:K:H’. It’s a song which takes you on a journey, evolving from jangly acoustics to heftier guitars and an instantly memorable classic Shed Seven hook. And then the second half of the song goes somewhere else entirely, its rock ‘n’ roll hedonism taking in soaring gospel vocal harmonies, dance-tinged beats and one of the most attention-grabbing solos that guitarist Paul Banks has ever recorded.

Rick Witter says, “‘F:K:H’ was born at a Shed Seven soundcheck in 2022. Paul started playing around with the riff and I started messing around with some lyrics from an early Sheds track, and spun those lyrics on their head – if we can rip any band off, it’s allowed if it’s us!

The song then took on a life of its own. We wanted to write something reminiscent of The Rolling Stones in their pomp. All swagger and attitude, and Paul’s guitar work is amazing. There is also a nod to my late father, who, when we went out drinking, would announce after a long night, ‘Let’s have another one, then we can all go home.’ It’s another Shed Seven anthem where the music grabs you, lifts you up by the lapels, and takes you somewhere else.”
