Shambolics

Shambolics release Trainspotting inspired video

Scotland’s next wave indie-rock stars Shambolics have released a fun new Trainspotting video ‘Choose Shambolics’ ahead of their debut album which has been shared by Robert Carlyle (Begbie) from the original film this weekend. They release their debut album this February 16th titled ‘Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams’. It’s lead single ‘Never Be Mine’ became an instant streaming hit with adds to Apple Music’s New In Rock and New in Alternative in the UK playlists, as well as Deezer’s Rock Britannia. Their live show continued to go from strength-to-strength, with a rammed intimate Glasgow headline show at King Tut’s and their current tour as special guests to Little Man Tate. They even had some pre-order hype from ‘Still Game’ and ‘Chewin’ The Fat’ actor Ford Kiernan. 

The ‘Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams’ album is available to pre-order HERE or pre-save HERE. The band’s official store offers exclusive products including a signed red-and-black marbled vinyl, ned red-coloured CD and cassette plus album bundles. 

‘Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams’ caps the first step in the rise of Shambolics. Formed by co-frontmen Darren Forbes and Lewis McDonald, the band provided a positive alternative to the teen years of hanging around the streets and drinking in the park in Kirkcaldy, and things soon took off when they were completed by Scott ‘Paws’ Williamson(keys/vocals), Ben Sharp (bass) and Robert Land (drums). They soon became local heroes due to their infamous gigs in PJ Molly’s in Dunfermline, before the support of Alan McGee (and let’s face it – Oasis, Primal Scream, Teenage Fanclub – who has a better ear for a band?) helped guide them to a broader audience. Every headline tour takes them to bigger venues in Glasgow, ticking off King Tut’s, The Garage and SWG3 on the way – and next time around will surely push them up another level. They’ve also hit festivals including the Isle of Wight, TRNSMT, Truck and Y NOT?, as earned airplay at 6 Music, Radio X and Amazing Radio.
