LAUNCH “38 MINUTES” VIDEO
THE FIRST SINGLE TO BE LIFTED FROM NEW ALBUM:
‘THE STORY IS…’
OUT 1st MARCH 2019 VIA XTRA MILE RECORDINGS
WORLD TOUR IN 2019 – ON SALE NOW
Today, SKINNY LISTER press the launch button on their thrilling new video: “38 Minutes” as premiering on VEVO now.
Inspired by the sounding of a false alarm for a ballistic missile attack in Hawaii earlier this year, Skinny’s intense new track is now accompanied with a suitably heated video that sees the band on full red-alert mode and playing like their lives depend on it…
The video was made in collaboration with The Film Smith, who has produced memorable videos for the likes of DJ Yoda, Norman Jay MBE, Cuban Brothers and others, also working with Skinny on their previous videos including “Plough & Orion”, “Trouble On Oxford St.” and more.
“38 Minutes” arrives as the tantalising first taster of the long-awaited fourth studio album: ‘The Story Is….’, which will be released on Xtra Mile Recordings on 1st March 2019.
A loosely-based concept album, ‘The Story Is…’ anthologises a series of personal vignettes inspired by a chaotic few years for the band and binds them into 14 tracks of unmistakably Skinny-sounding rock’n’roll. Gather-in close and lend your ears as Skinny Lister rifle through ‘The Story Is…’ and pull out: scorched stories of aggravated arsonists (‘Artist Arsonist’), rib-tickling tales of regretful re-fuellings (‘Diesel Vehicle’), and even polemic pleas inspired by some of life’s hardest lessons (‘Stop & Breathe’).
Produced and mixed by the highly capable Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, The Enemy, The Temper Trap), ’The Story is…’ is released via Xtra Mile Recordings on 1st March 2019. Pre-order the album here: https://skinnylister.lnk.to/thestoryis
With one of the most reputable live shows in the business (hailed as “a deafening and visceral experience” – The Independent, 5/5), Skinny Lister will also be touring ‘The Story Is…’ with a series of their tenacious live shows across the UK & Europe in 2019.
Don’t miss your chance to become part of their latest adventures as the band embark on a two-leg UK tour, plus fix dates in Germany, Czech Republic, Switzerland, France, Holland and Belgium throughout the Spring. (Dates below).

Since 2009, Skinny Lister, have never done things by half measures. Passing the growing flagon of their experiences with every album and tour, they’ve led an endless parade gathering fans old and new, from the respected folk circuit to the riotous Download Festival, igniting pogoing mosh-pits at each. Over the past ten years they’ve travelled from rain-soaked London to the vast arteries of the USA, upgrading from narrow boat to Salty Dog Cruise, played huge tours across Europe and North America with Frank Turner, Dropkick Murphys and Flogging Molly as well as headlining themselves across festivals, sweatboxes and ever-larger venues.
With three previous albums under their belt, Forge & Flagon, Down on Deptford Broadway and The Devil, the Heart & the Fight, the band have explored a lexicon of tastes through a whirlwind of adventures across the globe. And in 2019, Skinny Lister will open an all new chapter as they release their fourth studio LP ‘The Story Is…’.
