shame have announced a new album, Food for Worms, which will be out February 24 via Dead Oceans. The album was produced by Flood (U2, Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey) and finds the UK band expanding beyond their post-punk origins. Frontman Charlie Steen calls this "the Lamborghini of shame records."

The band have shared Food for Worms' anthemic opening cut, "Fingers of Steel," as well as its video. “Self-obsession, social media flagellation and death can all be seen in this Oscar-nominated performance," says Steen, tongue in cheek, who is front-and-center for most of the video. "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.” Watch below.

shame have also announced 2023 tour dates which kick off May 10 in Durham, NC. The NYC show is at Warsaw on May 14 and tickets for all dates go on sale Friday, November 18 at 10 AM Eastern. All dates are listed below.

The bang wrapped up their tour with Viagra Boys in October.
