Shambolics will release it on Scruff of the Neck Records.

Shambolics have confirmed their debut album Dreams, Schemes & Young Teams will be out on February 16th next year.

“We wanted the songs here to be quite uplifting, including the ones that deal with social issues,” Darren Forbes has said.

“It’s like even though shit happens, it’s going to be okay. It’s about trying to find some hope in the bleakest of times, about finding an escape from the terrible situation young people currently find themselves in.”

Accompanying the announcement is the band’s new single Never Be Mine, of which Forbes added:

It’s about a boy and a girl who meet each week, but they have no real ambitions to be in a relationship. They know they’re playing one another but don’t really want to say that out loud or admit it to one another – they’re in it for the moment.
