Xtra Mile Recordings and UK folk-rock band Skinny Lister have announced the band will be touring North American. They will be headlining a bunch of shows in November including a stop at Webster Hall on November 9th. All the dates are below.
Skinny Lister, the rum-soaked sextet from London, has run rampant across the UK, and further afield, since 2009. Having played a frightening amount of festivals and building an army of devotees, they signed to Xtra Mile Recordings in 2014 for the release of their sophomore album, Down On Deptford Broadway, which was issued in April of 2015. Since its release, the album has garnered rave reviews across the board, with Q Magazine roaring “three cheers for a band who give pub rock a good name,” while the Evening Standard declared “it’s harder to imagine anything more mischievous.”
Helmed by Grammy Award-winning producer Ted Hutt (Old Crow Medicine Show, The Gaslight Anthem, Lucero), Down On Deptford Broadway joins elements of English folk with the attitude of punk & rock that bursts with sing-along choruses and uptempo numbers, solidly complimenting the band’s live spirit. Skinny Lister just recently wrapped up tours in both the U.S. and Europe, both supporting labelmate Frank Turner and also made another appearance on the annual Flogging Molly Salty Dog Cruise to the Bahamas. The band continues to be an unstoppable, elated force that make being in their path an experience to repeat forever.
Skinny Lister will be making the following appearances in the U.S. this November and December. Tour dates below. Details on the band’s highly anticipated follow-up to Down On Deptford Broadway to be announced soon.
