THE time is now for The Shambolics after being signed by iconic Scottish music mogul Alan McGee.

The Fife band, based in Dunfermline, have put pen to paper with McGee, who has famously attracted the likes of Oasis, Primal Scream and The Jesus and Mary Chain to Creation Records.

His new venture, Creation23, now has The Shambolics on its roster and the band were delighted to make the announcement on Friday.

Darren Forbes, vocals/guitar, said: "Hard, hard work and dedication pays off and dreams do come true.

"No time to dwell on it though. Time to get the real graft in and make this happen – our time is now."

The four-piece won Best Rock/Alternative Act at the 2017 Scottish Alternative Music Awards (SAMAs) and have sold out iconic venues such as King Tut's in the past year, with their latest single, My Time is Now, being released at the tail end of 2018.

McGee revealed why he decided to make his move for the rising stars.

He said: "Scottish indie music is having a renaissance at the moment and I was so glad I came up to Edinburgh to see The Shambolics live.

"After I saw them I just had to sign them. One of the best Scottish artists out there. A classic creation band. Big tunes and they look great!"

Familiar faces on Dunfermline's music scene, their previous headline shows at PJ Molloys have gone down a storm with their fans jumping the barrier and joining them on stage.

They'll make their return to PJ's in a couple of months' time on Saturday, September 21.
