Seasons greetings and New Year things..!

It’s very nice having a festive period and all but us Skinnies CANNOT wait until the New Year. We are so very excited about everything that’s happening. First of all we are going to Germany for a ten day tour including a date in Zurich, that starts on the 11th January and ends in Berlin at White Trash on the 19th. So excited to get back to Haldern after we had an amazing experience at the Pop festival there, amongst other places of course! It’ll be great to see some familiar faces and meet some more lovely friendly and often (I’m learning) quite drunk people! Then we’ll be back in England again, with barely enough time to nurse our poorly heads and get rid of our hangovers before heading out to support the mighty Flogging Molly Celtic punksters on their Green 17 tour of the mid west, East Coast and southern states including Texas! We’ll be driving around and looking for places to stay along the way…that is an adventure I can’t wait for.

We’ll then be back in Austin, Texas in March for SXSW Festival. We had a great time there last year and looking forward to more of the same!

If you can’t make it to see us on either of these tours, there’s a May UK Tour and UK festivals in the pipeline.

Until then, we will eat mince pies, drink copious amounts of sherry and sit by the Christmas tree singing carols and opening presents. We hope and wish everyone has a cool yuletide and a very very merry New Year. See you soon!

ps. Forge & Flagon (DELUXE EDITION) is now available for pre-order here. Including new track ‘Merry Old Dance’ and live stuff!
