about

We couldn't be more excited to be releasing Shoplifters new full length album, Secret Free World. Picking up where they left off on 2017's Forgiver 7", Serbia's favorite sons return with 11 new songs of punchy, melodic punk rock. In the past we've compared Shoplifters to Snuff, China Drum, Bob Mould and Big Drill Car. On Secret Free World, they've continued to build off of these influences and have created something truly special.

In our humble opinion, Secret Free World is Shoplifters' masterpiece. They've built off of their past work, but have raised their game and developed their sound to be more complete and somehow even catchier than before.

Tim Popkid


‘Secret Free World’ is a catchy , well written record full of heart , grit and passion, pretty much exactly what you need from a rad punk rock record.
11 tracks of killer memorable jams that will stick to your brain and ooze out of every pour in your body, leaving you no option but to shake, rattle and roll.

Track Name: Erase
Gut punch , it went down
And neither of them wanted more
Twenty years gone by since he was that man
Two fists deep, it's the best he can
Nothing ever changes, time has a plan
To forget us all

Conversation went south
And neither of us wanted more
Took no chances yesterday
Life is one, it's too late
Nothing ever changes, standing tall
To remind you all

All I mean to you, erase
All I mean to you, erase
All I mean , erase
Cause, nothing ever changes
All I mean to you, erase
Track Name: Overdoser
Head in the clouds, walking tall and proud
One step closer
Cotton-mouthed, streets will hear his shout
He's taken over

No control, no amends
There's no stopping till the end
Overdoser

It's all the same, million miles away
A roller coaster
A dying flame, with ever growing pain
He's chasing closure

Lost his soul, all his friends
There's no stopping till the end
Overdoser
Track Name: Secret Free World
There's a world made out of dreams
Where no one knows my enemies
Secret place far out of reach
I'm the master, I'm the chief

Secret free world, the real world, is far out of reach

If I share with you some thoughts
Take it with a grain of salt
Everything I'm spitting out
Keeps the inside safe and sound

Secret free world, the real world, is far out of reach
Track Name: Everybody's Nobody's Fool
We're the goal, we're to be somebody
Just living our own agenda
Tenacious and disembodied

Everybody's nobody's fool

What's keeping us from everlasting?
Who's gonna stop the wrecking ball?
In the land of milk and honey

Everybody's nobody's fool
Track Name: When Travelling
Sitting around, we're going nowhere fast
Counting the hours, now they won't elapse
A sea of nameless faces, can't get through
Beyond the borderline we're heading to

Mountains growing from the ground
Milestones waiting to be found
Heads will spin, where to begin
When travelling

The road goes on forever, built for speed
Small chain reactions inside setting free
Around the corner scenes are predefined
And new horizons can't get out of mind

The road goes on, when travelling
Track Name: Between Us
There's a myth 'bout me and you
It's been dancing 'round the truth
Is there something here?

Spinning out in a crowded room
Staring at your denim jewel
Is there something here?

We'll cut and run, avoid the sun
No one will see us
No one will know, nor would deny
There's something between us

Long gone into overdrive
We're heading for a sleepless night
Is there something here?
Track Name: Saved By The Bell
Far from finished far from starting line
I beat my brains out, now I'm out of time
Friendly voices say don't worry
In the end you'll catch up, don't back down
I'm dropping out

Saved by the bell
One step forward
Saved by the bell
Two steps back

Feeling out of place and out of touch
I have got no legs for higher ground
Scary voices say don't worry
It's gonna be a long way to the top
I'm dropping out

Saved by the bell
One step forward
Saved by the bell
Two steps back
Track Name: Fortifier
Changing faster than the weather
I'm sorting out the stepping stones
Proving wrong my second-guesser
Finding places where to grow

Fortifier

Waiting out the late night riot
I have no place left to roam
Standing by my fortifier
Never to be left alone

Fortifier

Wandering if I'll go crazy, cross the line
Take the wrong step forward, fall behind
Gathering if, buts and maybes in a weary mind
I keep my head above the water, holding on

Fortifier
Track Name: Wrong
Forever hold your grudge
Try to move me, I wont budge
I'll never let me

You need to make some sense
I'm more into experiments
Like stepping over you

How can you call me wrong?
This rare phenomenon
Don't call me wrong!
How can you call me wrong?
This upper echelon
How can you call me, don't call me

Living with a guilt
You can't make the pieces fit
I'll never let you

All answers are with me
I'll fill your head with mindless shit
And I will never lose

How can you call me wrong?
This rare phenomenon
Don't call me wrong!
How can you call me wrong?
This upper echelon
How can you call me, don't call me
Track Name: Familiar Song
It's getting harder to remember
The worst of my Septembers
And how once you broke my heart
It really feels so strange
How our lives have changed
How we drift further apart

I heard a familiar song
I bet you don't sing it that much anymore
Has it really been so long?
Have we learned to forget
All that we used to adore?
As we spend our lives
Between letting in and letting go

I've got a handful of reminders
From the times when we were kinder
Before life got in the way
They don't ring with hope or promise
But they're not bitter and dishonest
As we've become today
Track Name: Do Better
Gotta do better
To be the man that I can be
To give the kind of love that I can give

Gotta try harder
So that when I go and fuck it up
You would find it easy to forgive

This life
Is like a series of distractions
Preventing me from seeing what is real

This life
Is like a constant misdirection
Pushing me away from how i feel

Gotta do better
I've been around the world enough
To know that I don't like it on my own

Gotta try harder
All due respect to me
I'm not the greatest company

This life
Is like a series of distractions
Preventing me from seeing what is real

This life
Is like a constant misdirection
Pushing me away from how i feel

Wasting all my time
But I cannot escape my crime
Gotta get it right
And remind myself that...

I can't drink away, or fuck away,
Or smoke away, the slow decay
