The Skids Announce New Album & UK Tour Dates

The Skids - Burning Cities
Four decades after they formed – in the white-hot summer of 1977 – The Skids are back. The post-punk pioneers, currently on a hugely successful comeback tour, will release their fifth album Burning Cities on January 12th.

Burning Cities, produced by Verve & Primal Scream collaborator Youth, features eleven brand new tracks including the current single, ‘A World On Fire’, which you can stream below!


The new album re-unites the original band members of Richard Jobson (vocals), Bill Simpson (bass) and Mike Baillie (drums). Stepping in for the late Stuart Adamson is his long-time Big Country band mate Bruce Watson while Jamie Watson provides additional guitar duties. Richard says,
I’m incredibly excited about this album. This music is at the heart of everything our band is about: truth, revolution, loud guitars and a refusal to keep quiet as the establishment tries to smother chances for anyone other than its own.

The arrival of Burning Cities coincides with the 40th anniversary of the first-ever Skids record, the No Bad EP, which introduced the Scottish post-punk pioneers to a whole new audience.

Released in February 1979 the band’s debut album Scared To Dance was a masterpiece of brooding atmospheres and anthemic lung-busting moments such as the irresistible Into The Valley, which gave the band their first Top 10 hit.

The band will continue their 40th Anniversary UK shows throughout 2018 beginning with two shows in January at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow and culminating in London at the 02 Shepherds Bush Empire on June 30th.
