The Skinner Brothers Close Off Standout Year By Announcing 2022 Tour
In the short time, we've known The Skinner Brothers, they've made a longstanding impression as one of the most down-to-earth and hard-working bands around. Their burgeoning success is a testament to their prolific output and personable demeanour. In the wake of a plethora of shows and an ever-growing fan base, they still have an affinity to keep their fans close. They are always quick to respond to any praise coming their way on socials, as well as having an active Facebook group named 'The Skinner Brothers Family' where fans around the country are connected. The ability to stay so personal in the midst of your rise is truly revelatory.
The band are taking their rambunctious rock ‘n’ roll on the road after the return of live shows. 17 sold-out gigs as special guests to Kasabian? Done! Two huge outdoor summer shows with The Streets? Likewise. Two sold-out headline gigs at London’s 100 Club? You better believe it!
Now The Skinner Brothers are set to take the frenetic intensity of their hands-in-the-air anthems on the road with the confirmation of a headline tour in March 2022. Not only is it the band’s most extensive tour to date, but it culminates with their biggest headline show so far at the O2 Academy Islington.
A recent success for the band was touring with Kasabian around the UK. I headed down to the Leeds show, which really was one to remember. Songwriter and producer Zac Skinner says, “It was incredible to be on tour with Kasabian, we've learned a lot and met new friends and grown our own world. Now it's our turn to take our tunes out around the country. We wanted to make sure that we got out to as many places as possible and keep this thing growing. Can't wait for the chaos!"
The Skinner Brothers have established burgeoning acclaim following their recent EP ‘Culture Non-Stop’. Their current single ‘Put Me Down As A Maybe’ reiterates their status as clear-cut contenders within an emerging new era of essential British guitar music. The band have fed their own personality in a track that puts a fresh angle on a larger-than-life hybrid of Kasabian’s psychedelic strut with bursts of ‘Love Spreads’-era John Squire guitar intensity.
Based in Brentford, west London, The Skinner Brothers are completed by Joe Fisher (guitar), Perry Meadowcroft (bass) and Alfie Clayton (drums).
Tickets for the shows, listed below, go on sale at 10am this Friday, November 12th, and will be available from
