After more than a year in the studio, New York City’s Skunkmello is proud to present their debut full-length album Stars & Stripes. The album, produced by resident engineer and bass player Ed Cuervo and Mastered by Brooklyn, NY’s own Clifford Lane, has already received rave reviews from Stephen L. Robbins of SurfRockMusic.com and had exclusive singles premiered on world renown music tastemaker Ryan Spaulding’s site Ryan’s Smashing Life and the Award-Winning Canadian Weblog A Music Blog, Yea?
Tomorrow, the guys will debut even more new music from the album with New York City’s own Rodent Hour Radio show and on Friday will perform a majority of the new material at Arlene’s Grocery, as well as standouts from their previous releases – 2013’s Lowlife Dreams and 2012’s Whiskey & Oatmeal.
Catch them on the road this fall playing select cities in support of the new album and at the CMJ Music Marathon in October, where they’ll host an official release party at the New York City cultural landmark The Bitter End.
The album is also available on CD directly from the band, for a discounted price at Amazon.com and streaming FREE on Spotify.com!
“How can three young men play so well, with such musical maturity, that they smoke many musicians twice their age? I have decades of practice on the men of Skunkmello, and I consider myself to be a decent musician, but Jono, Matt and Ed put me to shame. And Skunkmello makes the bands I’ve been in sound like a bunch of amateurs.” – Stephen Robbins

“Back in July of last year, we met New York rock and roll blues group Skunkmello. The trio (Matt Bartlett, Ed Cuervo, and Jono Ori) had released two EPs — Whiskey & Oatmeal and Lowlife Dreams — and are soon to release their new album Stars & Stripes (out digitally September 16th)! Taken from the forthcoming release, we’re delighted to share Skunkmello’s single Backseat Gypsy. Listen to the track below, and catch the band while on their Fall 2014 tour or at their official NYC Release Show on October 21st. Trust us, we know they can put on a great live show.”
