Na in 2016 op tour geweest te zijn met Frank Turner, acte de presence te hebben gegeven op Flogging Molly's Salty Dog Cruise festival en recentelijk de support voor punk/folk legendes Dropkick Murphys in AFAS Live te hebben verzorgd is Skinny Lister in oktober terug voor een eigen show in Sugarfactory. In september kwam alweer het derde album ‘The Devil, The Heart & The Fight’ uit. Van idyllische ballads tot met rum overgoten pubsongs, de energieke folk van dit Londense zestal staat gegarandeerd voor een feestje!
In support of their current album, The Devil, The Heart & The Fight – out on Xtra Mile Recordings – Skinny Lister will return to Amsterdam for their own headline show in Sugarfactory.
The year 2016 has seen them support Frank Turner across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, tour with American punk/folk legends Dropkick Murphys before joining Flogging Molly’s festival Salty Dog Cruise around the Bahamas. They then headed out on their own East Coast headline tour with label pals Beans On Toast and Will Varley in tow where many of the shows were sold out well in advance and signalled a big step up for the band Stateside, with an ever-increasing fanbase begging for more!
September saw the release of third album The Devil, The Heart & The Fight, which has received critical acclaim, including picking up support from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq, and reaching the Top 40 Indie Album Chart in the UK and the US Americana/Folk Chart at No. 38. And rounding off the year, the band head back to the US in November for their biggest headline tour to date; the show in Charlotte, NC is already sold out and Boston is looking likely to sell out very soon.
With 2017 already looking like yet another incredible year – there’s seemingly no end to what this hard-working, hard-partying, fun-filled band can achieve.
