Neville MacDonald to leave Skin

It comes with great sadness that we have to announce that Neville MacDonald has left Skin with immediate effect.

He wished us to post the following statement:

[quote style=”boxed”]“For deep, personal reasons, I have quit the band. Those closest to me fully understand my reasons and have been unswerving in their support; something I am truly grateful for.
To you, our fans, I extend my sincere apologies and, of course, my gratitude. Your support over the last few years has been nothing short of ‘overwhelming’ and I thank you so much for that.
I love you all,
Keep on rockin'”
– Nev[/quote]

This means that all future Skin appearances have been cancelled which includes the Download Festival and the 20th Anniversary Tour. At this point there is no additional information but we will post if/as it comes in. For those who have bought tickets for upcoming gigs, please see your ticket agent for a full refund.

The Official Skin Website wishes Nev all the best for the future, and his service to rock magnificence over the past 20 years can never be forgotten. No doubt the decision is a difficult one and we would like to thank him for the music he helped create.

Rehearsals begin

Myke has updated his Facebook with some news to get us in the Christmas spirit: Ok first day of Skin rehearsals today! Looking forward to seeing my brothers again! And looking forward to seeing my friends around the country on the Little Angels tour starting on Thursday at Nottingham Rock City Got your tickets yet?

Hello! Did You Miss Us?

We’re back! After a prolonged snooze thanks to hackers, the Official Skin Website is back from the dead. Sporting a sexy new look inspired by our sister website Born to Rock Records, we hopefully will be sticking around for a while.

So what are the changes? Well firstly, the Skin Web Shop is no more. It has been replaced by the Born To Rock Shop and we are now running an extra special promotion for anyone in the mood for a Skin or Red White & Blues CD: a free high 320k MP3 copy available for immediate download. Yep, IMMEDIATE DOWNLOAD!

This is the model we will be using in the future also, so the fastest, most official mechanism to get your lug-holes around rocking sonic goodness in the future is none other than Born To Rock Records. Support the boys! Buy our stuff! Stay off those other websites like iTunes… 😉
