Shader are a four-piece indie-rock & roll band based in Macclesfield. Forming in early 2017, Shader spent most of the year rehearsing & recording, playing only a select few shows in Manchester, Sheffield and most recently Stoke. 

Their high quality live shows gained the attention of Flick Of The Finger who wrote “It’s unlikely for Shader to remain at this size for much longer with singles on the way and an enormous sound that could have incredible widespread appeal. The songs are built upon hard graft and arena sized ambition.” 

Northern Exposure recently tipped Shader “quickly developing into future indie superstars with their fresh sound.”

Their debut single ‘Broken Minds’ released on January 19th this year, quickly made it’s way into the hands of the BBC Introducing team who have since played the track several times to date also inviting the band into BBC Introducing from Stoke to perform a live session
