On the Download Facebook page they are asking the question what bands would you like to see next year. So if you would like SKIN or RED WHITE & BLUES to play please feel free to add us – never say never! You would be amazed what influence you have on us! Original Facebook Status here.
Skin will be playing at 1 o’clock on the Saturday at Download 2011. Myke’s new project the Red, White & Blues will be playing at 5 o’clock on the Sunday. Red White & Blues are the new band featuring Matti Alfonzetti. Plus Nev is going to be playing with them on the Sunday!
Nev and Myke will be appearing at this year’s Download Festival on the Acoustic Stage, Saturday 11th June 2011! No news on the timings but it should be a very cool, intimate set.
Myke has also announced his new project, the ‘Red, White and Blues’ will be making an appearance. The new band features Matti Alfonzetti (Jagged Edge) on vocals. They will also be appearing at Download on the Sunday, and at Hard Rock Calling with Bon Jovi on June 25th! What news!
As part of the launch of the new site, we’re giving fans the chance to download the new video for ‘Born To rock ‘N’ Roll’ from the Skin Web Shop for £2. The download video will also feature four bonus tracks of Skin classics redone. The ‘redux’ versions include ‘Perfect Day’, ‘No Way Out’, ‘Shine Like Diamonds’ and ‘Blow My Mind’.

Skin’s new single is available to download for free from the Skin Web Shop. Yep. Free. All you have to do is log in with your Shop Account.
We’re releasing this free, in order to a get a little feedback from the fans…visual feedback in fact. We want you to be in the new Skin video. The task is simple: video yourself singing along to the song. Do this wherever you like. On the Tube. In the bath. In the pub. On your roof. Wherever. Then send it to us!
The video must be PAL 25fps or NTSC 29.97fps (frames per second) and High Definition or Standard Def is fine. One entry of the song per person will be allowed (i.e. no multiple takes!). If you can only send in raw footage – submit it uncut and unedited. We’ll do the rest.
UPDATE: FTP Instructions here!

An understandably annoyed visitor by the name of Frontman sent us the heads up that the version of “Revolution” availble from iTunes, HMV and Amazon MP3 cuts off at 4:41, and doesn’t run for the full full 5:29 of the original song.
