“stocked up with sufficient supplies of amphetamine-fuelled jitter rock to overcome impending apocalypse” NME
The Blueskins, currently in the wilds of Snowdonia recording their debut LP with producer Richard Formby, break off from developing their studio tans to play further dates throughout November and December.
The band, whose 'Magic Road' EP is just hitting the shops, have played two very special shows recently. The first, as part of Radio One's week by the seaside in Brighton, saw the boys play a frenetic half hour set, recently broadcast on Lamacq Live on Radio One. The second, at York Fibbers saw the band's ever growing Northern fanbase pack out the venue as they delivered one of the most talked about sets of the MTV2 tour under the watchful eye of the host, Zane Lowe.
Dates for the tour are as follows:
Tues 18th: Birmingham, Academy Bar
Thur 20th: Sheffield, Fuzz Club
Sun 23rd: Liverpool, University
Mon 24th: London, Metro
Thur 11th: Leeds, Wardrobe
Fri 12th: Sheffield, Fez Club
Sat 13th: Coventry, Colliseum
Mon 15th: Bristol, Louisiana
Tue 16th: Colchester, Soundhaus
Wed 17th: Southend, Chinnerys

The Blueskins will issue a new single, the first fruits of the LP recording sessions early next year. In a definite statement on how to treat your fans, the LP will not include any of the tracks from debut single 'User Friendly' or the current 'Magic Road' EP.
