Skinny Lister have returned with news of a new album, UK tour and single.

The London sextet today will release their long-awaited fourth studio album: ‘The Story Is….’, on 1st March 2019. The news is joined by the unveiling of the album’s first single, ’38 Minutes’. The band’s new tour for 2019 visits the Cambridge Junction on April 10th, with tickets going on sale Friday (2nd November).

If Skinny Lister’s intriguingly titled new album sounds like something of pick’n’mix of assorted tales ready to share with you, well that’s because it is. A loosely-based concept album, ‘The Story Is…’ anthologises a series of personal vignettes inspired by a chaotic few years for the band and binds them into 14 tracks of unmistakably Skinny-sounding rock’n’roll.
Gather-in close and lend your ears as Skinny Lister rifle through ‘The Story Is…’ and pull out: scorched stories of aggravated arsonists (‘Artist Arsonist’), rib-tickling tales of regretful re-fuellings (‘Diesel Vehicle’), and even polemic pleas inspired by some of life’s hardest lessons (‘Stop & Breathe’).
From tales inspired by the minutiae of our day-to-day lives to paranoid ruminations of impending apocalypse, ‘The Story Is…’, sees Skinny Lister deliver their most lyrically and conceptually complex offering to date. Coupled with a veritable sonic smorgasbord of new sounds and songcraft, there are plenty of tell-tale signs that ring true of a band on stimulated form and at the top of their game. From the new wave nuances of The Jam’s classic output (‘Cause for Chorus’) to vintage ska-janglings (‘Second Amendment’), not to mention lashings of the band’s trademarkedly barnstorming folk-punk too (‘Rattle & Roar’, ‘Sometimes So It Goes’), the sextet’s latest release not only sees them expand their horizons but arguably finds them in the most potent pop form of their career.
