Shed Seven

Story by Jack Foley

SHED Seven have announced they will take to the stage again in 2009. The five piece band, who enjoyed a run of 15 consecutive Top 40 hits from 1994 to 2003, will embark on an 15 date UK tour in December.

Frontman Rick Witter said: “The reaction to our reunion tour of 2007 was amazing and after a couple of memorable festival appearances last summer we couldn’t resist the urge to play live together again this year.

“Fans can expect to hear all the singles plus other past favourites that we didn’t get the chance to revisit in 2007.”

Witter also exclusively announced that the band have been working on new material.

“Although we have no plans to release another album, we have written two storming new tracks and one will be released as a download only single to coincide with the tour. As well as touring to celebrate the past this also gives us something to look ahead to.”

The Sheds also have a brand new website at www.shedseven.com which contains new and exclusive content.

This includes a new live album recorded on the band’s 2007 reunion tour which will be made available track by track as a free weekly download.

“We wanted to give our fans something back for their continued support and this also seemed like a good way of doing something a bit different. A new and exclusive live track will be made available every week”

The first track is She Left Me On Friday and will be available on the May 15.
