SKINNY LISTER’s fifth studio album ‘A Matter Of Life & Love’ is out now on Xtra Mile Recordings (Frank Turner, Against Me!). Featuring the singles ‘Like It’s The First Time’, ‘Bonny’s Eyes’, ‘A Matter Of Life & Love’ and shanty track ‘Damn The Amsterdam’ featuring The Longest Johns, the album is the first to be written, recorded, produced and mixed by the band themselves.
Since the album release, the band have performed across the UK at their sold out headline tour and supported punk legends Less Than Jake. And after a summer of festivals, including Kendal Calling and Wickham Festival, the band played live shows across Europe in September and October and will close the year with a UK headline tour.
The album entered Top 10 in the Official Indie Album Breakers Chart and No. 29 in the Indie album Chart. The single ‘Damn The Amsterdam’ was added to ‘New In Rock’ Apple playlist and ‘A Matter Of Life & Love’ was ‘video of the day’ on Spin website in US.
The album is the latest installment of the band’s career, which has seen them passing the growing flagon of their experiences with every album and tour. They’ve led an endless parade gathering fans old and new, from the respected folk circuit to the riotous Download Festival, igniting pogoing mosh-pits at each. Over the past ten years they’ve travelled from rain-soaked London to the vast arteries of the USA, upgrading from narrow boat to Salty Dog Cruise, played huge tours across Europe and North America with Frank Turner, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly as well as headlining themselves across festivals, sweatboxes and ever-larger venues.
