Yup, we dun gone and made an actual music video thingy, like what they did for Bohemian Rhapsody. That Ashley Jones of The Chaos Engineers forced us into compromising positions and then filmed it, the dirty bastard. MTV surely beckons. Please go and have a look and laugh with us, or at us, as is your wont…and feel free to share it, like a particularly undesirable kind of virus, if you get the urge.
Yes, you read that right, in a rare moment of thinking about ‘merchandise’ (for our recent Pledge campaign), some bright spark (me) came up with these two designs for t-shirts, both based entirely around the number ‘7’, and then decided to do a ridiculously limited run of both, that are now available to buy from us, until they run out, or the world ends, whichever comes sooner. Both designs are silk-screen printed on lovely soft fairtrade organic cotton (‘Earth Positive climate neutral’), and the ‘unreadable logo’ design is printed in subtly reflective ink to freak out your friends and amaze your enemies. For the moment, both designs available in M / L / XL sizes, but get in quick or they won’t be. Just £20 to be the envy of your ‘crew’. Send us an e-telegram via this site to buy direct (preferable), or you can also grab them off of that Bandcamp here – https://7shades.bandcamp.com/merch
Oh…and should probably mention that our third album ‘The Monumental Midden’ is also out now, and available to purchase on CD or in a variety of digital formats, either direct from us on here (please), or if you must, via Bandcamp here – https://7shades.bandcamp.com/album/the-monumental-midden – or if you *REALLY* must, via a whole gamut of cock-sucking corporate concerns like Spotify, iTunes, Pandora (who?) etc etc etc.
‘Exploded head’ design
‘Unreadable logo’ design
These are posh t-shirts, innit?
As a ‘fan’ of 7shades (which presumably you are if you’re bothering to read this blog), you’d have to have been living under an internet rock not to have noticed my emails or Facebook & Twitter posts about the Pledge Campaign that is currently running to try and fund our upcoming 3rd album ‘The Monumental Midden’, I guess, so this post is just intended as a friendly reminder that there are only *11 DAYS TO GO* until it will be too late to pledge for anything, and your opportunity to own one of the wonderful exclusive items that we have on offer will have passed you by…
Not to mention if you do pledge, you get access to all the lovely exclusive content that we have put on the Pledge Music website, including a video just uploaded entitled ‘Kidneys (granular)’…
So, if you are intending to pledge, please put me out of my misery, I don’t know if I can bear the tension!

OH. MY. GOD.
We’ve only gone and done it again.
Feast your eyes on the brand new Pledge Music campaign for our upcoming third album, ‘The Monumental Midden’, and marvel at the wonders contained within. As a special treat just for looking, you’ll be able to listen to brand new track ‘The Elevator’ which will feature on said album, and of course if you pledge, then not only will you be getting bostin’ (and some exclusive) merchandise at preferential prices, but also access to regular exclusive updates over the coming weeks…and the rosy glow that you are helping us get more of our sordid art out into the world. So go on, you know you want to.
Great time in Bristol with The Oroonies on Friday – and now, a short break from gigging while we concentrate on getting ‘The Monumental Midden’ shipshape and ready for release. Keep your eyes peeled for an imminent Pledge Music campaign, which should be launching this week with any luck…
Very excited to announce that we will be supporting the legendary Oroonies in Bristol, our first show in that wonderful city. So get yo asses down to The Louisiana on Friday 8th September for an evening of much mind-bendingness and strangeity.
Thanks to all who made it out to either of our gigs the last couple of weeks in Brighton & Birmingham, we had a right blast, and new songs seemed to go down well (despite some occasional hiccups on our part)…plenty more to come on that front soon (the new stuff, not the hiccups).
On that topic…we’re having a couple of months off gigging to polish up the new album, which is sounding pretty beastly it must be said, but will be back on stage at the wonderful Kozfest, end of July, with yet more fearsome new material under our belts.
Keep ’em peeled for updates here or on our Facebook page – please join in the fun there if you haven’t already – https://www.facebook.com/7shadesband/
Oh…and…while we mostly try and stay out of politics (unless you actually read our lyrics), please go out and use your vote on Thursday, and please use it wisely. We’ll trust you to know what “wisely” means…
