Scottish four-piece SHAMBOLICS unveiled their new single “Chasing a Disaster”. Combining the pillowy 80s-hued chimings of Felt or early R.E.M., “Chasing A Disaster” is the stunning debut release from the band on Creation 23 Records. Backed with breezy B-Side “Fight Another Feeling”, the two tracks will be available on November 1st, 2019 on vinyl-release and digitally.
Already hailed by label owner and mentor Alan McGee as “one of the great Scottish bands”, Shambolics are a fervently ambitious outfit from Scotland ready to take on the World. A far cry from the rag-tag chaos their name would perhaps imply, Shambolics have a knack for artfully honed and irresistibly dreamy rock’n’roll.
Breaking out of the fife scene and quickly accruing a burgeoning and passionately devoted fanbase across wider Scotland, the band scooped the 2017 SAMA Award for “Best Rock/Alternative Act” and have continued on an upwards trajectory ever since.
In 2019, their ascent continues with the band tallying-up in excess of 250,000 Spotify plays for infectious recent demo “When She Goes Home” and count unforgettable SOLD OUT shows at some of Scotland’s most legendary gig spaces including Glasgow’s King Tuts and Edinburgh’s Mash House among their achievements.
It was surely only a matter of time before word of the Shambolics became music to the ears to one of Glasgow’s most musically in-tune sons, Alan McGee, who famously signed classic acts like Oasis, Primal Scream, Jesus & The Mary Chain to his Creation Records label. It wasn’t long before McGee snapped up the band for his label.

Photography has given me the opportunity to photograph some of today's most legendary bands, and entertainers. When I'm not photographing music you can find me on the runway shooting New York and Philadelphia Fashion Week.
