North Staffordshire indie rock band Shader have premiered their new single “Streets Tell Stories” and its accompanying music video.
The song is taken from their upcoming debut album ‘Everything Is Connected‘, which will be out through Run On Records on 28th October. Get it here.
SHADER are known for delivering an eclectic swirl of huge melodic guitar riffs & northern grooves colliding with addictive arena-sized choruses.
Speaking of the track Stu states:
“‘Streets Tell Stories’ “is a song about the social anxiety of decadence slowly creeping into a person’s life. The inspiration began when Daz and myself were in my car outside our old practice room in Stoke. We witnessed a workman in a hi-vis walking out of a bookies covered from head to toe in blood pouring from his nose. He walked down the street and stopped at a cash point to draw out money. He then walked back into the bookies. That said a lot about his situation in 30 seconds and the idea of ‘Streets Tell Stories’ was born.”
“The lyrics are about that incident but then expand on how easily someone can become that person dealing with their struggles in an unforgiving world. The outro lyrics ‘Let me go’ is a plea to escape your situation or town or both. The feeling of the song pushes against the stark reality of the lyrics and gives the feeling of not giving up and fighting against your state of mind or situation. It’s essentially a song of faith in moving forward.”
