As folk rock’s rowdiest rabble since 2009, Skinny’s world has always been filled with adventure. They’ve held gigs in Land Rovers. They’ve sung while wing-walking. They’ve toured in a narrow boat. They’ve stomped and jigged on restaurant tables, in hotel elevators and in record label car parks.


Their three previous albums sent them reeling into the hearts of America, the UK, Germany and Japan – on headline tours and stints with Frank Turner, Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys and the Vans Warped Tour. 


Wherever they play their lusty shanties, punk folk roar-alongs and crazed whirls of love, you’ll find them out dancing with the crowd.


Make no bones – Skinny Lister are the wildest party band you’ll ever get drunk with.

“The Devil, The Heart & The Fight is Skinny Lister’s best album yet; maintaining their punk-folk edge, while adding some pop gloss that pushes them towards a stadium-filling sound.”
