Marking their 25th anniversary with the release of the new acclaimed live album ’25LIVE@25′, Skunk Anansie have announced UK tour dates to continue the celebration of this remarkable milestone.
Hailed as one of the most exciting and greatest live acts across the globe, Skunk Anansie will be heading back to their birthplace to play a date at London’s O2 Academy Brixton before heading to Manchester’s Academy 1 and the O2 Academy in Bristol. The shows follow their recently announced headline performance at Beautiful Days Festival on 16th August.
It’s been twenty-five years since Skunk Anansie exploded from the backrooms of London with their radical, politically-charged and emotionally grabbing music seeing them become one of the most iconic and culturally important bands of the 90’s. Spanning a career that has seen them score numerous Top 40 singles and Top 10 albums, sell millions of albums around the world, play sold-out arenas and stadiums across the globe and headline Glastonbury Festival, Skunk Anansie remain internationally relevant and potent as ever.
As they come into their anniversary year the mainstream British media have strongly embraced their importance within today’s culture with the likes of Channel 4 News, Newsnight, The One Show, ITN, Radio 2, national newspapers and broadsheets hailing them as iconic pillars of Britrock, as well as widespread acclaim from music and fashion press including Kerrang, NME, Classic Rock, Dazed & Confused, Phoenix Magazine, Diva Magazine, The Quietus and many more.
Lead vocalist Skin was also awarded with the ‘Inspirational Artist’ award at the 2018 Music Week Women In Music Awards.
The new album 25LIVE@25 is an in-your-face audio-document highlighting Skunk Anansie’s triumphant live presence over the past three decades. Now heading back out on the road in 2019, they will confirm just why they remain one of the greatest live bands on the planet.
