THECITYISOURS have released a video for their striking and poignant new single 'Shame', out now

THECITYISOURS are a four-piece pop metal band from London who have quickly garnered attention and growing support for peers, industry and fans alike, with their high-octane live show and the success of their second album. Coma (2021) smashed into the Top 5 iTunes Metal Charts with several singles appearing in editorial playlists with the likes of Amazon MusicDeezer and Spotify (including two covers on New Core and Metal UK) supporting the band.

THECITYISOURS have become a upcoming staple on UK and EU festival line-ups, with appearances at Camden RocksMacmillan FestBurn It DownHolloween, a fly in appearance at High 5 Festival in Sweden, and a headline set in the Doghouse Tent at the revered Download Festival to a 4000+ audience of festival-goers. After a sold-out album release show at The Underworld in London, 2022 saw THECITYISOURS break out into the European scene, with a full-length tour across the mainland. Most recently, the band toured across the UK supporting Heart Of A Coward

THECITYISOURS, through this single, have not only created a poignant and emotionally charged song, but made a bold statement about acceptance, identity, and the struggles faced by the LGBTQ+ community. 'Shame' stands as a beacon of hope and resilience, encouraging listeners to embrace their true selves and to fight against societal norms that seek to define and restrict. It’s a powerful reminder that, even in the darkest of times, one can find the strength to push through and that, in the end, being true to oneself is the most important victory of all.

Vocalist Oli Duncanson Comments,

"'Shame' was written about the feeling of not being able to accept your sexuality; an aspect of yourself that can't be changed, and how it makes you feel that you don't belong anywhere. It affects every way in which you navigate through life and won't leave you until you come to terms and embrace it."
