An unorthodox collection of individuals, Skinner’s Lane are an explosive three-piece band from Liverpool. Although their two members originate as far as San Francisco and Sandefjord (Norway), they have built a reputation for their electric live sets combining expert musicianship with outlandish melodic-craft and chaotic stage performances drawing from indie, classic and alternative rock and as far radical as progressive and psychedelic rock influences.

Having grafted and matured in the competitive cut-throat environment of Liverpool, 2019 has seen the band take their slant on British music around the UK on tour, with further appearances at festivals including BBC Music 6 Fringe, Threshold Festival and Funk in the Forest. Set for more releases and supporting UK touring acts across Liverpool and Manchester this autumn, Skinner’s Lane are a band not afraid to let typical British-band stereotypes bring down their individualistic musical style and swagger.

“Like the Duracell bunny on speed, Skinner’s Lane owned the stage and the floor, it was a performance that was both exciting and impressive,”​ ​– ​Manchester Rocks.

"With the riff's combined with the frontman Zak's energy, the place filled fast. Through the Canadian accent and the American humour, the band definitely set the bar high for acts to follow,"​ ​– ​Purple Revolver.

“Instantly reminiscent of the sounds of The Clash but with elements of early Arctic Monkeys and Black Keys,”​ – ​One Great Song.
