Sheffield Band Sheafs Announce Leeds Date & New Album

Rising Sheffield quintet SHEAFS are pleased to reveal the video for their new single Vacancy which is set for release on 18th May 2022 via Modern Sky UK (The Lathums, Red Rum Club, SPINN). 

The track is the latest to be taken from their forthcoming debut album, A Happy Medium, released on 15th July 2022 via Modern Sky UK.

Commenting on the track, which continues the band’s relationship with two-time Grammy award-winning producer Adrian Bushby, SHEAFS say: “Sadly patriotic, Vacancy describes a nationalist’s outlook and the narrow-mindedness that it often partners with. It’s a poem that reflects a stubbornness that, once established, can’t seem to be withdrawn.”

Following a recent support tour with punk icons The Buzzcocks and their own May 2022 UK headline dates, the band recently announced a run of July 2022 UK album headline tour dates and an appearance at Tramlines Festival in Sheffield, with further live dates TBA.

SHEAFS have secured previous support slots with artists such as The Slow Readers Club (2021), Red Rum Club (2021), Squid, Idles, Greta Van Fleet, The Coral and The Amazons. They have previously played Reading Festival, Isle of Wight, Live at Leeds, Dot to Dot, Y Not Festival, Tramlines and The Great Escape.

The band have a date at Leeds Oporto on 12th July 2022.
