Ahoy there fellow Skinnies! Happy New Year and all that to you! Thought I’d give you all our best and have a quick reflection on what a truly amazing year it has been for us (sorry its taken a while – just found it difficult to pull myself away from the leftover mince pies and sherry)!
Seeing the year out by playing two amazing support gigs with the Levellers and then our own sold out London show left us with one almighty hangover that didn’t seem to disappear until this very morning. Wow!
Given that we started this band to get into our favourite festivals for free it’s amazing how far we’ve come. Being invited to play at the infamous NPR Tiny Desk Session, supporting Flogging Molly on an amazing tour of the East Coast of the States, opening up the main stage at Coachella in California (a ridiculous pleasure), flying over to the Japanese mountains to play in front of thousands at Fuji Rock (unbelievable), and loads of other more familiar and yet heart warming happenings back here in the UK, for example playing the Big Top at Bestival, and entering more European countries such as Holland and Spain. Oh and lets not forget our magical town of Haldern where we played to a sold out bar, with people watching from outside in the snow. I think it’s safe to say that Skinny has gone ‘international’. Plus, we’re fresh out of The Legendary Rockfield studio and awaiting first mixes of our second album – due out in Spring…
We also welcomed our latest addition Dave Neale on drums – which has taken our sound into another dimension.
We’re well and truly equipped with everyone on board to conquer the world in 2014!!
Max Thomas, Daniel Heptinstall, Michael Camino, Slim and Dave Neale – are you ready
?! The rest of you…are you ready?!!!
Well here we come!
