Scottish band Shambolics share uplifting journey on TikTok playing with 'heroes' The View

Fife band Shambolics have shared a sentimental video on social media of them going from superfans of Dundee icons The View, to performing with them in Edinburgh.

In the video, clips of the band members can be seen watching The View back at Scottish festival T in the Park 2013, with the caption: "When you go from being big fans of the band."

The video continues to the Shambolics playing on stage with The View at the Caves in Edinburgh more recently, captioned with: "To performing onstage with them..."

The video cuts to a polaroid of Kyle Falconer from The View recording in the studio, captioned: "To recording music with them..."

Then the video ends on the most exciting part, captioned: "To then supporting them at their big comeback show!"

The video ends with the iconic caption: "The View are on fire", as details are shown on screen of Dundee band The View's big return to live music, with Fife band Shambolics in the supporting lineup alongside The Roly Mo.

Fans of both Shambolics and The View flocked to the TikTok comments to share their excitement and send their congratulations to the up-and-coming local band.
