Shed Seven will take part in the Live After Racing concert series this summer.

After releasing a 20th anniversary version of their Going For Gold compilation in 2019, the band have an appearance at Doncaster Racecourse lined up for August 15th, while rescheduled gigs at the Cardiff University Students’ Union and the O2 Academy in Bournemouth are coming up next month.

“Growing in confidence and popularity, in 2017 they released Instant Pleasures, an album of new material which fans loved and, even if nobody makes money from selling music these days, spoke loudly to new ambitions,” we said in our Going For Gold review.

“It also reinforced a truth: what their detractors don’t realise is that Witter doesn’t need telling that there’s no equivalent to Animal Nitrate, Girls & Boys or Common People in their repertoire; Shed Seven’s popularity was never in the shake of a hip or brute force, but forged in songs that had no cost of entry and came without a requirement for taking sides.”
