Introduce yourself and your music
We’re Skeleton Kid, from south coast UK and we play shadow punk.
Describe your sound and lyric style
The sound encompasses punk, glam and heavy rock. Imagine crossing AFI with Motley Crue. Lyrics wise, it’s fairly dark, the theme for most of our debut album was the falling apart of relationships, whether that be romantic, friendship or family orientated.
Who are your main influences? What else inspires you?
Band wise, we take influence from quite a variety, some of the top ones being Motley Crue, My Chemical Romance, AFI, Skid Row, You Me At Six. So yeah, quite a mixture. Generally inspired by real life events, relationship breakdowns and the emotions that come along with them – anger, heart ache, longing, etc
What are you working on now?
We’ve just released our debut album and gigged with Papa Roach in Germany which was incredible. We’re now working on a few new songs that will be out early next year.
Are you touring now?
We’ve got some big tours to announce for early next year but for the rest of this year it’s writing, studio and rehearsal.
What can people expect at your live gigs?
We definitely put a lot of energy and feeling into the live performance, we’re not a band who can just stand there and play our instruments. We’ve been working hard this year on our stage show and we’re certainly feeling it from the feedback. We like a good sing along and a jump.
