With the imminent release of their adventurous new album ‘The Story Is…’ – SKINNY LISTER – today unearth the latest track to be found amongst its many riches: ‘Rattle & Roar’. The band return to Cambridge in April, when they play the Cambridge Junction on April 10th.

Harking back to the band’s earnest beginnings as intrepid folk-roots revivalists, “Rattle & Roar”, is a rum-slugging, foot-stomping, good-time tune. A souped-up shanty that wouldn’t sound amiss if sung from lungs of any crew heartily navigating the seven-seas, Skinny Lister it seems found inspiration for their latest track in the most fitting of situations. As Daniel Heptinstall of the band explains: 

“From ‘John Kanaka’, via ‘Raise A Wreck’ and ‘Beat It From The Chest’, we’ve always been keen to include a shanty element on our albums. Singing sea shanties in our local folk club is a big part of the band’s early history. “Rattle & Roar” though, was actually written while on board Flogging Molly’s Salty Dog Cruise last year – a great punk rock festival on a boat that sails around the Bahamas. I like to feel this has infused the track with some extra saltiness!”
