Following a triumphant week at SXSW Festival and currently on tour in Europe supporting Chuck Ragan, Skinny Lister unveil another track ‘This Is War’ from their forthcoming album ‘Down On Deptford Broadway’ out 20th April 2015.

An uplifting, fast-tempo-ed call to arms, ‘This Is War’ perfectly captures the band’s infectious energy at their fist-pumping, foot-stomping best. Check out this video of the band performing ‘This Is War’ in Shibuya, Tokyo 

‘Down On Deptford Broadway’ is packed with smart songwriting; bursting with catchy choruses and high energy it’s a fast-paced, uplifting, beer-swilling good-time record perfectly capturing their legendary live shows.

From day one, Skinny Lister set out to cause chaos and make friends, travelling to the four corners of the globe plying their unique rum-soaked blend of English folk and punk rock anarchy. From Japan's Fuji Rock Festival to the desert stage of California's prestigious Coachella, via the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury and many a festival across Europe and beyond, Skinny Lister are an experience never to be forgotten.

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. And wherever they play their lusty shanties, punk folk roar-alongs and crazed whirls of love, fighting and hardcore drinking – you’ll find them out dancing with the crowd, passing around their flagon of rum or crowd-surfing to the bar to neck shots mid-song. Make no bones – Skinny Lister arethe wildest party band you’ll ever get drunk with. And you will get drunk with them.
