Leeds gig on sale and new single ‘#RefugeesWelcome’ out on pre-order

Following a six-year hiatus, Skint & Demoralised returned with brand new single ‘Boro Kitchen 4am‘ on 29 March. After receiving heavy airplay on BBC Radio 6Music from one of our old champions Steve Lamacq, we followed it up with second single ‘#RefugeesWelcome’ on 14 June (available to stream or download here via all platforms).

This will be our first live performance up north for 6 years, in our native West Yorkshire nevertheless. Support comes from two of West Yorkshire’s finest spoken word artists, Kirsty Taylor and Simon Widdop.

Skint & Demoralised in Leeds
Skint & Demoralised live in Leeds on 10 July

Lyrically cutting and insightful, it gets to the crux of the Brexit conundrum and its endless contradictions…after hearing ‘Boro Kitchen 4am’, the rule book on how to re-invent yourself as an anarchic and poetic force has been re-written

Travellers Tunes

Lyrical, raw and arguing with the insistence of its setting: politics and cheap lager at a Teesside party, when it’s time to go home but nobody’s got the time, not to think about that

The State Of The Arts

Skint & Demoralised are releasing our new material through iconic indie label Fierce Panda, with fourth album ‘We Are Humans’ set to follow at the end of summer, before we embark on a UK tour. Since our last album ‘The Bit Between The Teeth’ was released in 2013, Matt has gone on to establish himself on the UK’s flourishing spoken word scene, and David has gained international acclaim as a producer on his ‘SOULS’ project.
