Following last week’s sold out shows supporting Frank Turner for Independent Venue Week, Skinny Lister have unveiled their new single ‘Cathy’. Listen here:
It’s a perfect slice of infectious sing-a-long punk ‘n’ roll, fusing their traditional shanti-inspired folk with an attitude and stomp of The Pogues. Singer and guitarist Dan explains:
"'Cathy' is an ode to addiction and recklessness. A declaration of desire for someone or something that you know is bad for you, and you'd be wise to steer well clear of. The classic wrestle between head and heart."
It is the second single to be taken from their forthcoming album out on 20th April 2015 on Xtra Mile Recordings. Preorder the CD or download from us now, vinyl and CD from Banquet Records, CD from Amazon CD or vinyl from Amazon LP, or download from iTunes. Packed with smart songwriting; bursting with catchy choruses and high energy it’s a fast-paced, uplifting, beer-swilling good-time record perfectly capturing their legendary live shows.
The last single ‘Trouble On Oxford Street’ garnered support from Steve Lamacq at 6Music and John Kennedy at XFM. Check out the video here:
Coinciding with the album release the band tour with Chuck Ragan in the UK and Europe throughout March before heading off on their own headline tour of the UK in April and May. You can see the dates on our gigs calendar.
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.
