SKINNY LISTER NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO 'WHAT CAN I SAY?' // STREAM 'DOWN ON DEPTFORD BROADWAY' EXCLUSIVELY ON THE GUARDIAN // LIVE IN-SHOP AT RISE AND BANQUET 18 APRIL RECORD STORE DAY WEEKEND

Currently tearing through Europe, rum-soaked folk-punk collective Skinny Lister release new single 'What Can I Say?' on 1 June 2015, with a brand new video. The song is a more restrained, melodic and folk-steeped singalong for Skinny Lister, the light-hearted pre-hangover dawn song you sing to both celebrate and mourn the morning to come.

The video features singer Lorna asking the titular question in various windswept locations, and giving us an answer towards the end. Watch it here: 

The track is taken from new album Down on Deptford Broadway which is available to preorder now for 20 April 2015. Get it from our digital shop on CD or download,  vinyl and CD from Banquet Records, on CD  or vinyl from Amazon, or simply download it from iTunes.

You can help your decision to preorder by streaming the entire album a week ahead of release, exclusively on The Guardian's website

The band will be supporting the release of the album with four gigs in two days over Record Store Day weekend, playing the three Rise Stores in Bristol, Cheltenham and Worcester on 18 April, and then Banquet Records in Kingston on 19 April.

They then embark on their huge headline tour of the UK from 22 April. Dates are on our gig calendar, which can also be viewed below.

Last month, Laura Jane came over to Europe and stopped by Banquet Records for a packed out and emotional instore and signing. Queues snaked through the streets of Kingston, London and the wonderful folk at Punktastic were on hand to film the event.
