British post-punk band Shame are releasing a new album, Food For Worms, on February 24 via Dead Oceans. Now they have shared its second single, “Six Pack,” via a music video. Gilbert Bannerman directed the video, which was animated by Cyrus Hayley. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Shame frontman Charlie Steen had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘Six-Pack’ is essentially the opposite of a Room 101; instead it’s a room where all your wildest desires can come true and will be showered upon you. Be it commodities, self-obsession, foods and B-lister celebrities, it’ll all be there if you want it to. You’ve done time behind bars and now you’re making time in-front of them. It’s time to make up for anything you’ve lost or wasted, it’s time to get it all.”

Bannerman had this to say about the video: “The idea was to make a parody of a middle aged bloke thinking he’s a king for going to the gym once. I read a lot about Napoleon and thought it would be a laugh to make it about him. The style comes from trying to make my youth spent playing PS1 not entirely wasted.”

Previously Shame shared the album’s first single, “Fingers of Steel,” via a music video. “Fingers of Steel” was one of our Songs of the Week.

Food For Worms is the follow-up to 2021’s Drunk Tank Pink. For the album they worked with renowned producer Flood. In a press release, frontman Charlie Steen calls Food For Worms “the Lamborghini of Shame records.”
