Shanghai Treason

Sheffield banjo punks Shanghai Treason have gone from strength to strength since launching in late 2019, they've supported the likes of Ferocious Dog, Terrorvision, Skinny Lister, Buzzcocks, Stiff Little Fingers and recently toured the UK with The Rumjacks
The band's highly anticipated self titled debut album was released in January 2022 and received much critical acclaim. 
It's a high octane, knees up, party atmosphere kind of performance, leaving crowds with smiles all round reaching for a fresh round of pints, or two, or more likely three, it's just that kind of music.
