NEWS: Panic Shack release new single ‘Meal Deal’ and announce 2023 UK tour dates

Cardiff’s Panic Shack have released their new single ‘Meal Deal’ via Brace Yourself Records and its the first new music since their debut EP Baby Shack. The band have also announced tour dates for early in 2023, please see full details below. Panic Shack have been a breakthrough artist for 2022 and it does not appear that they are ready to take the foot off the gas.

Of the track, Panic Shack offer:

“We wrote ‘Meal Deal’ back in 2020. It was once almost an ode to the meal deal, declaring our love for our favourite combos, but since then we’ve got a bit more to be angry about and are annoyed that meal deals are still all we can afford.

“We would regularly get meal deals on our lunch breaks.  We’d get 30 minutes to run to Boots or Tesco, have a cig and scoff it down before having to be all smiles again on the shop floor, but to keep spirits high we’d send each other our combos and rate them.  For example, ready salted crisps, a ham sandwich and a water would get nil pois, obviously. We truly believe your meal deal says a lot about you.

“The new and improved version, however, is less focused on the actual meal deal itself and more towards what the meal deal represents… being skint. In true Shack style we are keeping things relatively light but still giving our two pence on the current state of living.”
