Skinny Lister Bio
2023 brings a resurgent SKINNY LISTER who kick started the year with an epic tour of the USA supporting friends Flogging Molly and Anti-Flag. Covering the full breadth of the country, the band have reignited their American fan base after a few years away, and plans are afoot for more shows in the latter part of the year including the Salt Dog Cruise in November.
Before that though, the band are busy writing and recording their sixth studio album. Their trademark shanty punk style will be front and centre of the new record, with the songs telling tales of live shows and travelling on the road. Due for release in the Autumn on Xtra Mile Recordings alongside a UK headline tour, further details on both will be unveiled soon.
SKINNY LISTER released their previous album ‘A Matter Of Life & Love’ in 2021. The album entered Top 10 in the Official Indie Album Breakers Chart and No. 29 in Indie album Chart. The single ‘Damn The Amsterdam’ was added to ‘New In Rock’ Apple playlist and ‘A Matter Of Life & Love’ was ‘video of the day’ on Spin website in US.
Since then the band have performed across the UK with sold out headline tours, supported punk legends Less Than Jake, toured Europe and performed at many summer festivals, including Kendal Calling and Wickham Festival.
The band’s career continues to see them passing the growing flagon of their experiences with every album and tour. They’ve led an endless parade gathering fans old and new, from the respected folk circuit to the riotous Download Festival, igniting pogoing mosh-pits at each. Over the past ten years they’ve travelled from rain-soaked London to the vast arteries of the USA, upgrading from narrow boat to Salty Dog Cruise, played huge tours across Europe and North America with Frank Turner, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly as well as headlining themselves across festivals, sweatboxes and ever-larger venues.
