it’s finally here. our new album ‘We Are Humans’ is available via all major digital providers here. and even more exciting than that, you can pre-order it on limited edition white vinyl here. that’s out on 25 October.
i know that bands always say this, but we passionately believe that this is our best album yet. i’m over the moon that we’ve made it, and that we’re releasing it on a label like Fierce Panda. so get listening, get pre-ordering, and let us know what you reckon!
oh, and we’re launching the album at The Victoria in Dalston on Tuesday 3 September, if you fancy it. tickets are on sale here and the poster is below.
Now then! Ahead of the Leeds gig, a couple of folk were chatting on Facebook about how much merch money they were planning on bringing. At which point I had a very sudden realisation that we didn’t have any merch.
So, I threw together some designs, contacted RDS Print in Wakefield (not a sponsored plug, I just like to support local businesses) and around 5 minutes before the doors opened at Hyde Park Book Club, we had three t-shirts ready to sell.
The t-shirts cost £10 each plus P+P, and at the moment they’re available in S, M, L and XL. They’re Fruit of the Loom valueweight t-shirts, so they’re great for summer (and for afterwards, obviously). They’re available via Nymphs & Thugs here.
You’ll be aware that the pink t-shirt is for ‘#RefugeesWelcome’ and that the yellow t-shirt is for ‘Boro Kitchen 4am’. The white t-shirt contains the artwork for our forthcoming fourth album ‘We Are Humans’, which will be available to pre-order very soon!
When alternative indie act Skint & Demoralised first emerged on the scene in 2007, Matt Abbott was completing his A-Levels and David Gledhill was producing in Sheffield under the guise ‘MiNI dOG’. Demo plays on BBC Radio 1 from Steve Lamacq and Colin Murray led to a frenzy on the band’s MySpace page, and within 9 months they’d signed to Universal Records – one of those classic meteoric rises that the music industry churns out every now and again.
Fast forward to 2019 and Matt Abbott is 30 years old; rapidly establishing himself on the UK’s flourishing spoken word scene. He recently completed a 22-date theatre tour with his critically acclaimed one-man show ‘Two Little Ducks‘. David Gledhill, known more recently for his SOULS project, is releasing a track a week from his East London studio on a new piano project called ’52 Weeks Makes A Year’. Skint & Demoralised have changed, and so has the world around them.
