It was a big week this week for Skinny Lister who had both new music and new tour dates to share.

Alongside a full UK tour later this year, the band debuted new single, ‘Down On The Barrier’, which you can check out below!

Skinny Lister – ‘Down On The Barrier’

Speaking about the message behind their euphoric, enlightening new track frontman Dan Heptinstall says: 

“Music is a kind of religion to many gig-goers, and in “Down On The Barrier” we’ve tried to capture that feeling. The church in this case is the venue, the sermon is the song and the preacher the artist. It’s a nod to those almost spiritual moments when we gather to enjoy some communal rock’n’roll worship, as well as a healthy dose of support, release and camaraderie. See you down on the barrier!”

Tickets are here.

Yellowcard – ‘Childhood Eyes’

After their appearance at Slam Dunk Festival, Yellowcard have revealed details of a new EP, ‘Childhood Eyes’ which will be released on July 7th.

Ahead of the release the band have shared the title-track, which you can check out above!

About the new single, William Ryan Key said: “I woke up in the middle of the night with the chorus ringing in my head. I grabbed my phone off of the night stand and started typing away, squinting in the dark. This was months before we even started demoing the EP. When we started writing I threw the idea in the hat at the last minute, picked up a guitar to try and put music to the melody in my head for the first time, and Childhood Eyes was born. This is a song about being defeating, let down, and deceived time and again, but still managing to find your creative soul and carry on. I think it captures the spirit of Yellowcard, both old and new.”

Trophy Eyes – ‘Life In Slow Motion’

Another band with new music following their appearances at Slam Dunk Festival was Trophy Eyes.

The band shared their new single, ‘Life In Slow Motion’, which you can check out above!

“‘Life in Slow Motion’ is my assessment of life itself, and the way we as humans navigate life and time here on Earth.” says John Floreani. “Searching for meaning in chaos, I found myself seeing signs in number patterns and small examples of beauty in ordinary life; a hug at the bar exchanged between friends, a crinkled photo of a loved one kept close, a kindness or a smile. What they mean, I can’t say, but sometimes if you look hard enough and sit quietly enough, life reaches out and speaks to you.”

The release comes ahead of new album, ‘Suicide and Sunshine’, which is out on June 23rd.

The track comes from upcoming debut solo album, ‘Chaos For The Fly’, which is out June 30th.

Fixation – ‘Flat Earth’

Norwegians Fixation share new single, ‘Flat Earth’.

The band states, “Flat Earth is a track that delves into the minds of people who persuade themselves into believing conspiracy theories. People that are so centered around their own perception of the truth that they refuse to see it any other way. The lyrics sums it up: «Even if they see it, they probably won’t believe it.”

Kings County – ‘Holding On’

US band Kings County share new single, ‘Holding On’.

Singer Rob Dexter says, “’Holding On” was the song we needed to write. After our last release in 2022, we were constantly performing live for months and knew we had to get back to writing or we would become complacent. You are as good as your last song and “Holding On” was a pivotal moment for us. We needed to raise the bar and that’s exactly what we did with “Holding On”.”

Martiné – ‘Oxytocin’

Copenhagen’s Martiné shares debut single, ‘Oxytocin’.

“My inspiration for this song was the very powerful hormone Oxytocin, which is also released when falling in love or by physical touch. The lyrics reflect how to embrace the power of one’s femininity and learn how to use that to set boundaries. It is definitely a song about being in control and not getting blinded by Oxytocin” – Martiné
