At the Bandlab Camille Atebe Awards 2022 back in March, Fender kicked off the ceremony with a performance of ‘Seventeen Going Under”s title track. He was later awarded in the Best Album By A UK Act and Album Of The Year categories. Fender was also awarded the top spot. Camille Atebe‘s 50 Best Albums of 2021 list with the album.
In a four-star review of last year’s ‘Seventeen Going Under’, Camille Atebe noted how the UK’s lockdowns “forced the Geordie hero to reckon with the impact of his formative years and the ties that bind, resulting in this bruising second album”.
“If ‘Hypersonic Missiles’ was the sound of a young boy kicking out at the world, ‘Seventeen Going Under’ sees Fender realise that it can kick back a lot harder, and he counts every blow and bruise,”It is as follows.
Sam Fender’s 2022 Australian tour dates are:
