Skin are very pleased to announce that they will be performing at the High Voltage Festival on July 23rd, 2011. Skin will also be playing shows at the Nottingham Rock City on July 21st, and Pontypridd Municipal Hall, July 22nd.
Explaining the reasons behind these appearances, Myke Gray mentions “we were all gutted at the way the tour in December 2010 finished. We were all so sick, Nev had lost his voice, we all had sore throats and fever and the weather made it nearly impossible to make the shows. Our roadcrew was amazing, and the fans that braved the elements kept us going. But we didn’t perform as well as we could and it has left us with a feeling of unfinished business. So when High Voltage asked to perform at their festival we jumped at the chance to make things right. It’s an amazing line up, with some of our heroes. The other reason for playing is that it is an opportunity to play to people that have never heard Skin before, and as an unsigned band it is very hard to get exposure in magazines or be played on the radio. We would like to say thank you to all the Skin fans that have stuck with us through thick and thin, without you we are nothing. We will do everything we can to deliver the performances you deserve. These will be the only shows this year and probably ever, but to echo Nev’s words ‘never say never’!”.
So there you have it…the boys are back for the summer. Anyone else excited?!
