London live show – 7th May, Dingwalls
Since her critically acclaimed 2010 debut album ‘Catching a Tiger’, Lissie has forged a reputation as one of the most talented and enigmatic female rock artists of recent times. Today she announces new single ‘Shameless’ – released on June 16th through Columbia Records. Her much-anticipated sophomore album is set to be released this September.
Bristling with distorted guitars and fiery attitude, ‘Shameless’ is a smouldering commentary on the culture of modern celebrity, introspectively examining what it takes to achieve fame and success in current times. Building towards its rousing climax, Lissie’s raw vocals and gritty, heartfelt delivery make for a compelling and blistering return.
“We live in a society where terrible behaviour is rewarded with coverage and attention, where celebrity is seen as a talent in itself. I understand the allure of image and of a good story but i sometimes feel like it trumps the content. When i wrote Shameless i’d just been feeling so over how much bullshit style over substance there is to “making” it in this business” said Lissie.
Lissie today also announces an intimate London performance at Dingwallson May 7th. Tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday April 12th at www.livenation.co.uk/artist/lissie-tickets
Last month Lissie headed to Austin to perform a set of shows at SXSW Festival, and it has recently been announced that Lissie will perform at Bestival in September. More announcements on tour dates, festivals and album details to follow soon.
