The Skints announce UK headline tour + New album ‘Part & Parcel’ set for release 9th April, 2012

The_Skints_distressed_typefaceLondon-based reggae & dub upstarts The Skints will embark on a long-awaited headline tour of the UK in October this year. All dates will be on sale from this Friday. Josh from the band has the following to say about The Skints’ excitement at announcing the run –


The-Skints_promo_1d"We’re extremely pleased and proud to announce that we’ll be headlining our own tour this October in support of our new album "Part & Parcel"! These are easily the biggest headline slots we’ve ever done and we’re so stoked to be doing a headline run after doing so many support slots with artists like Gym Class Heroes, Reel Big Fish, You Me at Six, Gogol Bordello… the list goes on! We can’t wait to see what kinds of crazy cats will be at the shows to hang out, and after a few months of our record being out, this is gonna be a no holds barred, all singing, ALL dancing punky-reggae party! We’re hitting all of our favourite UK cities, the other artists will be incredible, did I mention we’re excited?"

The Skints will also be playing at Passing Clouds in London on 2nd March. The band release their second album ‘Part & Parcel’ on 9th April, 2012. Produced by Prince Fatty, the album mixes Jamaican styles with pop hooks, grimey raps, filthy basslines and a punk rock work ethic to create a sound familiar to newcomers, yet unique below the surface. The Skints’ first album ‘Live , Breathe, Build, Believe’ crossed the boundaries between the punk scene they grew up in and distinct reggae grooves, providing them with an underground hit.
