Shed Seven are coming to Norwich to play a sold out headline show at The Nick Rayns LCR after the announcment of their first studio album in 16 years.

Formed in York back in 1990 the band comprises of lead vocalist Rick Witter, lead guitarist Paul Banks, bass guitarist Tom Gladwin, guitarist and keyboardist Joe Johnson and drummer Alan Leach.

The band, who have several hit albums and 16 top 40 singles including the likes of 'Chasing Rainbows', 'Disco Down', 'Going for Gold', 'On Standby', 'She Left Me on Friday' and 'Getting Better' returned to the studio to record the highly anticipated new album 'Instant Pleasures' which was released on November 10, 2017.

To celebrate the release of their new studio album Shed Seven are going on an extensive UK tour throughout December.

'The Sheds' consistently sell out concerts across the UK and abroad, playing to a huge and ever-growing following with their acclaimed and energetic live shows.

After two years of writing new songs, they decided that now was the time to commit to the release of a highly anticipated studio album.

'We've spent the last couple of years writing and demo-ing secretly and have more than an album's worth of material that we can't wait to share with you. We feel now is the right time,' explained frontman Rick before the release of the new album.
