Fresh from their epic Splendour In The Grass festival set, Skegss have today announced they’ll be hitting the road on their My Own Mess National Tour in support of their debut album My Own Mess, which will be released on Friday September 7 on Ratbag Records.
Joining the boys on the road will be US special guests Twin Peaks, and the boys couldn’t be happier. “It’s going to be the biggest and best yet for us, it is our Album Tour and we just can’t believe we conned the American guys Twin Peaks into joining us on it.” The full list of dates can be found below.
All shows on the tour are partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will be donated to the Mark Hughes Foundation for brain cancer research.
My Own Mess features 15 brand new tracks showcasing Skegss’ brilliant brand of garage punk, and includes the albums first two singles Up In The Clouds and Smogged Out which have both received strong support from Triple J and community radio right across Australia.
After selling out tours across the country, the band have made a name for themselves with energetic, ripping live performances, garnering praise from The Music for their “infectious” on-stage chemistry and Moshcam who asserted they “seem to have some sort of hypnotic effect over their fans.” Along with Splendour In The Grass, Skegss have played at festivals across the country and overseas including a headline slot at Sounds of the Suburbs plus performances at Spilt Milk and Groovin’ The Moo to name a few.
