news: Monday 11th May 2009

Shed Seven have announced they will take to the stage again at the end of the year. The five piece band, who enjoyed a run of fifteen 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 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."

Their tour dates are as follows:
Mon 30 November Ironworks, Inverness
Tue 01 December Music Hall, Aberdeen
Thu 03 December O2 Academy, Glasgow
Fri 04 December O2 Academy, Manchester
Mon 07 December O2 Academy, Newcastle upon Tyne

The Sheds also have updated their website at which includes a new live album recorded on the bands 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 will be 'She Left Me On Friday' and will be available on their website from this Friday.
