After nearly a year in the studio, we have unveiled the title track “Stars & Stripes” from our forthcoming LP (Out September 16th via New York City’s Moped Music).
Endorsing the single with an exclusive feature is the super-influential Ryan’s Smashing Life, the blog of rock and roll tastemaker and Outlaw Roadshow co-founder Ryan Spaulding.
Produced by the band’s resident audio engineer and bassist Ed Cuervo, “Stars & Stripes” is an uptempo, tongue-in-cheek tribute to Skunkmello’s beloved homeland, with sardonic yet infectious lyrics that examine young America’s aptitude for oblivion in pursuit of a good time – a perfect soundtrack for Fourth of July playlists everywhere.
A brand new Skunkmello song will premiering Monday morning, June 30th. Be sure to listen to Outlaw Roadshow Radio with host Ryan Spaulding on WEMF from 4 to 6 PM EST TOMORROW (Saturday 6/28) for a sneak peek! http://wemfradio.com/live
