Inspired by the sounding of a false alarm for a ballistic missile attack in Hawaii earlier this year, Skinny’s intense new track is now accompanied with a suitably heated video that sees the band on full red-alert mode and playing like their lives depend on it. Watch the video below. “38 Minutes” arrives as the tantalising first taster of the long-awaited fourth studio album: The Story Is…., which will be released on Xtra Mile Recordings on 1 March 2019. Preorder it here.
The video was made in collaboration with The Film Smith, who has produced memorable videos for the likes of DJ Yoda, Norman Jay MBE, Cuban Brothers and others, also working with Skinny on their previous videos including ‘Plough & Orion’, ‘Trouble On Oxford Street’ and more.
A loosely-based concept album, The Story Is… anthologises a series of personal vignettes inspired by a chaotic few years for the band and binds them into 14 tracks of unmistakably Skinny-sounding rock’n’roll. Gather-in close and lend your ears as Skinny Lister rifle through ‘The Story Is…’ and pull out: scorched stories of aggravated arsonists (‘Artist Arsonist’), rib-tickling tales of regretful re-fuellings (‘Diesel Vehicle’), and even polemic pleas inspired by some of life’s hardest lessons (‘Stop & Breathe’).
