Never miss another 'Shed Seven' show
Shed Seven, Cast
Shed Seven have announced news of their first studio album in 16 years alongside their biggest ever UK tour, where they will be joined by special guests, Cast.
The band, who have several hit albums and 16 top 40 singles including the likes of ‘Chasing Rainbows', ‘Disco Down’, ‘Going for Gold', ‘On Standby’, 'She Left Me on Friday' and 'Getting Better' will be returning to the studio this spring to record the highly anticipated new album, which will be released later in the year. The new studio album will be supported with an extensive UK tour in December.
'The Sheds' consistently sell out concerts across the UK and abroad, playing to a huge and ever-growing following with their acclaimed and energetic live shows. After two years of writing new songs, they have decided that now is the time to commit to the release of a highly anticipated studio album, which comes after a 16 year wait.
Talismanic front man Rick Witter said:
'We’ve spent the last couple of years writing and demo-ing secretly and have more than an album's worth of material that we can’t wait to share with you. We feel now is the right time. We're looking forward to 'Shedcember' where it will be business as usual, you’ll get to hear all the songs you rightly should expect to hear but this time with a light sprinkling of new music to top it all off. Thanks for all the support over the years, we’re really excited about this new chapter for Shed Seven and hope you’ll continue to be part of the journey with us, and trust me, this album will be well worth the wait.'

Nineties Brit-Pop group Shed Seven who, fronted by the unmistakable vocals of Rick Witter, brought us hits such as Going For Gold, Chasing Rainbows and Getting Better.
Shed Seven formed in York in 1990, out of the ashes of Brockley Haven, they were one of the groups which contributed to the Britpop music scene of the 1990s, but they never received the degree of mainstream success achieved by the likes of Oasis and Blur. The band officially split up in 2003 but reformed in 2007 for a greatest hits tour, and have since continued to play shows around Britain periodically.

Originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded Liverpool guitar bands of the time, The La's and Shack, Cast have released six albums including the top 10 platinum releases 'All Change' and 'Morher Nature Calls', and have enjoyed a string of top 20 singles, from the debut 'Finetime' to 'Beat Mama'.
After the band's split, Power released a series of solo albums, but reformed Cast in 2010 under the line-up of Power joined by Liam 'Skin' Tyson - lead guitar, Keith O'Neill - drums and Jay Lewis - bass.
The reinvigorated Cast continue to produce new material full of the anthemic, melodic and beautifully written songs for which they have always been known for, along with a formidable live reputation. Noel Gallagher described watching the band as "a religious experience."
