Video of the Moment #2171: Skinny Lister

By on Monday, 29th August 2016 at 10:00 am

Folk-punk collective Skinny Lister are striking while the iron is hot, building on the success they achieved in 2015 with their sophomore LP ‘Down on Deptford Broadway’. The band spent much of last year on tour, including an appearance at SXSW 2015 in March and a long list of support dates with fellow folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner, which drew attention from new fans and reignited excitement for those already in the know. Back in July, they announced a new third album, titled ‘The Devil, The Heart & The Fight’, with the promo video for lead single ‘Wanted’.

Now, in an attempt to further whet our already expectant appetites, Skinny Lister have unveiled the joyful new video for album track ‘Geordie Lad’. The song itself is light and buoyant despite its wistful lyrics about remembering a former friend, and the accompanying video finds the band members frolicking in fields flushed by warm, late summer sunshine. The simple visual interpretation, directed by The Film Smith, prominently features a paraphrase of the new album title, which you’ll also see on Skinny Lister’s social media as #devilheartfight.

‘The Devil, The Heart, & The Fight’ is due for release on the 30th of September via Xtra Mile Recordings. Skinny Lister will immediately follow the release with a list of October live dates in the UK and a headline tour of North America in November.
