SHIELDS is a 5 piece pop band from Newcastle consisting of Luke (guitar/bass/vocals), Richard (guitar, vocals), David (guitar/synth/vocals), John (percussion/bass/samples), and Tom (drums/vocals) who are continuing our exciting #MusicBringsUsTogether campaign.

After forming in 2014 they have wowed big names in the music industry and performed all over the country, including the Melt! Festival in Germany, held at the iconic Ferropolis open museum.

Their album How Can We Fix This? has been praised by The Guardian as ‘Debut album of the year’, stating that: ‘The whole album plays like one long (musical, existential) affirmation.’
