Shanghai Treason are a new Yorkshire based Celtic-Punk five-piece who plan to traverse the darker, heavier, side of the genre. Expect breakneck performances complete with banjo, accordion and hard hitting rock rhythm section; fit to inject a jolt of action into any event.
On tour this December playing a series of charity gigs for Musicians Against Homelessness they release their debut single today and you can watch the video exclusively here!
Let’s Shanghai Treason!
Its always a great day at London Celtic Punks Towers when we hear of another band active on the scene. Today we are very happy to introduce you to a cracking band from South Yorkshire called Shanghai Treason. Fast paced Punk-Rock with some of the best banjo you’ll hear this side of the Atlantic. Doffing a cap to Celtic-Punk stalwarts the Dropkick Murphys at their heaviest it’s banjo heavy and all the better for it!
Shanghai Treason vocalist Sam Christie said to us
“It’s a fierce fire cracker of a debut, marking our intent early on. We’ve been working on this project for the best part of a year so to have it come into the light is a total joy!
Lyrically the song is about one of those nights out which get a bit out of hand. Where it feels like anything is possible!”
You can catch Shanghai Treason playing around the country next month on a tour sponsored by Musicians Against Homelessness, a organisation set up by former Oasis guru Alan McGee. Since setting MAH up in 2016 more than 1000 bands have played special MAH benefit gigs in the UK. All money raised goes to Crisis and the excellent work they do especially at this time of year.
