Xtra Mile Recordings’ newest signings Skinny Lister can unveil details of their forthcoming second album and a UK headline tour for spring next year.
Down On Deptford Broadway - out on 20 April 2015 - is packed with smart songwriting; bringing together elements of folk with the attitude of punk and rock 'n' roll bursting with sing-a-long choruses and infectious raucous energy. Talking about the new album, frontman Max Thomas said, “We’re trying to push forward the sound we had on the first album (Forge & Flagon). We don’t want to be a static band, we want to move with whatever influences are going on around us all the time." The first single to feature from the album is 'Trouble on Oxford Street', to be released in January 2015. Check out the new video here:
From day one, Skinny Lister set out to cause chaos and make friends, travelling to the four corners of the globe plying their unique rum-soaked blend of English folk and punk rock anarchy. From Japan's Fuji Rock Festival to the desert stage of California's prestigious Coachella, via the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury and many a festival across Europe and beyond, Skinny Lister are an experience never to be forgotten.
They’ve held gigs in Land Rovers. They’ve sung while wing-walking. They’ve toured in a narrow boat. They’ve stomped and jigged on restaurant tables, in hotel elevators and in record label car parks. And wherever they play their lusty shanties, punk folk roar-alongs and crazed whirls of love, fighting and hardcore drinking – you’ll find them out dancing with the crowd, passing around their flagon of rum or crowd-surfing to the bar to neck shots mid-song. Make no bones – Skinny Lister are the wildest party band you’ll ever get drunk with. And you will get drunk with them.
They’re on tour with Chuck Ragan in the UK and Europe throughout March before heading off on their own headline tour of the UK. Dates are below. Check out our gigs calendar for ticket links and Google calendar syncing!
