Shambolics are a fervently ambitious outfit from Scotland who are more than ready to take on the World. 

The Fife four-piece have taken one further step towards greatness with their signing to Creation23, a brand new label venture from infamous Scottish music mogul Alan McGee,the man who signed Oasis and Primal Scream.

A far cry from the rag-tag chaos their name would perhaps imply, Shambolics have a knack for artfully honed and irresistibly dreamy rock’n’roll that calls to mind the indelible sounds of the genre’s lauded masters, from The LA’s to The Beatles and The Stone Roses.

Breaking out of the Fife scene and quickly building a passionately devoted fanbase across Scotland, the band scooped the 2017 SAMA Award for ‘Best Rock/Alternative Act’ and have continued on an upwards trajectory ever since. From earning critical acclaim from press tastemakers including BBC Scotland (Vic Galloway), This Feeling, Radio X, Virgin Radio (Edith Bowman) & Fred Perry Subculture, to sharing huge stages with the likes of The Sherlocks & The View performing at some of the UK’s biggest festivals including Isle of Wight Festival, Tramlines Festival and Reading & Leeds Festival; Shambolics glitter with all the hallmarks of a band destined for greatness.

Mac Arts is working in collaboration with Heriot Watt University to bring you this event, which is open to all!
