We’re delighted to be welcoming Skinny Lister back – this time to The Ruby Lounge!

Skinny-Press-Ruby-Lounge-Manchester

One of the best live bands in the country are back with their biggest UK headline tour to date, taking place in October 2016. Skinny Lister, who have been performing non-stop across Europe and the United States, return with flagon in hand, party spirit in their bellies and only one thing on their mind: fun.

2016 has already been an exceptional year for the twelve-legged party machine that is Skinny Lister. Kicking things off was a support tour across Germany, Austria and Switzerland with label-mate and fan Frank Turner. Then it was a quick hop across the pond for Flogging Molly’s festival Salty Dog Cruise, around the Bahamas, before heading out on their own East Coast headline tour with label pals, Beans On Toast and Will Varley in tow. Many of the shows were sold out well in advance and signalled a big step up for the band Stateside, with an ever-increasing fanbase begging for more!

Since then, concentration has turned to recording the band’s third studio album set for release in the Autumn on Xtra Mile Recordings. Lorna from the band says: ‘The last year has been amazing! The Xtra Mile Recordings family has welcomed us with open arms and touring the States, Europe and the UK with label mates Frank Turner, Beans on Toast and Will Varley has been incredible. The excitement doesn’t stop there though; we’ve not stopped writing and feel very excited about what’s cooking!’

Album number 3 follows 2015’s Down On Deptford Broadway, a rum-soaked blend of English folk and punk rock anarchy that received rapturous acclaim with the Guardian declaring ‘it packs enough punch to steamroll a saloon brawl’. More information on the album will be unveiled in due course.

Tour support comes from Funke and the Two Tone Baby – a one-man mechanical alt-blues band.
