Shed Seven have already had an unforgettable 30th anniversary year, taking in their first ever #1 album with ‘A Matter of Time’, two huge upcoming homecoming celebration shows at York’s Museum Gardens, and a #1 vinyl single with the Radio 2 playlisted ‘Let’s Go Dancing’. Yet the fun doesn’t stop there. Not only will Shed Seven release the new orchestral reworks album ‘Liquid Gold’ on September 27th, but they have just announced a major nationwide 30th anniversary tour.

‘Liquid Gold’ sees Shed Seven revisit a selection of hits and live favourites from their back catalogue with the rousing accompaniment of a full orchestra. Reimagined by the band in collaboration with arrangers Fiona Brice (Liam Gallagher, Placebo) and Michael Rendall (who worked on both ‘A Matter of Time’ and 2017’s Top 10 comeback ‘Instant Pleasures’), the album’s rich reinvention also benefits from a brass section and gospel singers.

The album spans the band’s career, starting with ‘Speakeasy’ and ‘Ocean Pie’ from their 1994 debut album ‘Change Giver’. It also visits their landmark album ‘A Maximum High’ – including a dramatic new take on ‘Parallel Lines’ which guitarist Paul Banks has playfully described as sounding like “Shed Zeppelin” – and a soaring, sweeping ‘Disco Down’ through to ‘Better Days’, originally from ‘Instant Pleasures’.

‘Liquid Gold’ is completed by a brand new song which was written specifically for this project in the shape of ‘All Roads Lead To You’ and a new take on the ‘Instant Pleasures’ era bonus track ‘Waiting For The Catch’, which now features Issy Ferris of the UK Americana Award winners Ferris & Sylvester.

‘Liquid Gold’ is available to pre-order HERE. The band’s official store offers exclusives in the shape of a splatter vinyl with unique artwork, a different colour CD and a cassette, while all bundles also add a signed postcard. Other retailer-specific formats include silver vinyl (from Assai Records), blue vinyl (from HMV) and yellow vinyl (from select indie stores).

After phenomenal demand has already seen multiple gigs sell-out, limited tickets remain available HERE. All shows feature special guests The Sherlocks.
