Following a first spin from Steve Lamacq on BBC 6music, Sheffield post-punk quintet SHEAFS are pleased to reveal their new single ‘Monotonal Living’ which is released 22nd June 2022 via all good DSPs.
The track is the latest to be taken from their debut album, A Happy Medium, which will be released on 15th July 2022 via Modern Sky UK (The Lathums, Red Rum Club, SPINN).
Commenting on the track, which continues the band's relationship with two-time Grammy award-winning producer Adrian Bushby, SHEAFS say: “Written about the dependency on social media in the modern day, the track focuses on the hypocritical juxtaposition of not being able to live without it, and the self-deprecating pressures of living with it.”
Recently supporting punk icons The Buzzcocks on their recent UK dates, the band are part way through a run of May and July 2022 UK headline tour dates including an appearance at Tramlines Festival in Sheffield, with further live dates TBA (see below for full listings).
SHEAFS recently announced their signing to Modern Sky UK with the release of previous single 'En Route Distress', ‘Millennial’ and ‘Vacancy’—a pummelling trio of post-punk mastery, which set the tone for what looks to be a very exciting year for the band.
After releasing their debut EP Vox Pop in 2020, the band scored a 'Next Wave' on BBC Radio 1's Indie Show with Jack Saunders. This has been followed by consistent support across major national radio stations including BBC Radio 1, BBC 6 Music, Amazing Radio, Radio X and Virgin Radio, and the band have also earned press plaudits from essential titles like DIY, DORK, GIGWISE and more over the years.
SHEAFS have secured previous support slots with artists such as The Slow Readers Club (2021), Red Rum Club (2021), Squid, Idles, Greta Van Fleet, The Coral and The Amazons. They have previously played Reading Festival, Isle of Wight, Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot, Y Not Festival, Tramlines and The Great Escape.
