Shame is a band that must be seen in concert, and we had the chance last summer to see them perform at l’Hippodrome de Longchamp during the Solidays Festival. The four Londoners exploded everyting on their way and their first album Songs of Praise was elected Album of the Year by the British label Rough Trade. This week, Shame unveiled the opening song’s clip for this album, Dust On Trial. A dark clip that seems to start on a good note but gradually arrives at the drama. You can watch it below:
This week’s bad news: Bring Me The Horizon’s fan died during a mosh pit at their Londonian gig
This is a sad news that the group confirmed this week. On Friday, November 30th, Americans band Bring Me The Horizon performed in London in his famous hall, Alexandra Palace. Mosh pits happen a lot during the group’s concerts but these gatherings can be very dangerous. The proof is that a young fan made a cardiac arrest while participating in a mosh pit (a sudden and brutal gathering of fans during a concert). Devastated by the news, the group made a statement on social networks and fans called to pay attention to each other.
This week’s duet: Bob Dylan and Neil Young’s reunion at Hyde Park
These are two great icons that will be on the same stage at Hyde Park in July 2019! Indeed, Bob Dylan and Neil Young have been confirmed at the prestigious London festival, and will be accompanied by The National and Florence + The Machine who were also announced in the week. Also, the English darling Robbie Williams will be there!
