ANNOUNCE 25LIVE@25 UK TOUR
COMING TO LONDON, MANCHESTER & BRISTOL
CELEBRATING 25YEARS TOGETHER WITH THE NEW ALBUM
OUT NOW VIA THE REPUBLIC OF MUSIC
HEADLINING BEAUTIFUL DAYS FESTIVAL
AUGUST 16TH“25LIVE@25 not only celebrates their quarter-century, but offers a timely reminder of how great and vital they still are” – Kerrang
“Their music has an acerbic sweep and rigorous power lacking in so many of their contemporaries. It is a genuine pleasure to listen back to…” – Classic Rock
“A beloved artist for a generation of outsiders. Skunk Anansie made you FEEL it… rawer, more avant-garde and radical than the then pervasive ‘four white men with guitars’ model of Brit-pop” – Dazed & Confused
“25LIVE@25…captures a band at full throttle, with the sheer power and range of Skin’s voice still startling.” – Independent
“…a melding of alt metal/feminist vocal venom into a distinctive, decibel-driven dervish of angst-rock.” – Record Collector
“…awesome listening, showcasing the best of their beloved back catalogue… still feeling potent a quarter of a century after their debut” – Diva Magazine
Hailed as one of the most exciting and greatest live acts across the globe, Skunk Anansie will be heading back to their birthplace to play a date at London’s O2 Academy Brixton before heading to Manchester’s Academy 1 and the O2 Academy 1 in Bristol. The shows follow their recently announced headline performance at Beautiful Days Festival on August 16th.

It’s been twenty-five years since Skunk Anansie exploded from the backrooms of London with their radical, politically-charged and emotionally grabbing music seeing them become one of the most iconic and culturally important bands of the 90’s. Spanning a career that has seen them score numerous Top 40 singles and Top 10 albums, sell millions of albums around the world, play sold-out arenas and stadiums across the globe and headline Glastonbury Festival, Skunk Anansie remain internationally relevant and potent as ever.
As they come into their anniversary year the mainstream British media have strongly embraced their importance within today’s culture with the likes of Channel 4 News, Newsnight, The One Show, ITN, Radio 2, national newspapers and broadsheets hailing them as iconic pillars of Britrock, as well as widespread acclaim from music and fashion press including Kerrang, NME, Classic Rock, Dazed & Confused, Phoenix Magazine, Diva Magazine, The Quietus and many more.
Lead vocalist Skin was also awarded with the ‘Inspirational Artist’ award at the 2018 Music Week Women In Music Awards.
The new album 25LIVE@25 is an in-your-face audio-document highlighting Skunk Anansie’s triumphant live presence over the past three decades. Now heading back out on the road in 2019, they will confirm just why they remain one of the greatest live bands on the planet.
25LIVE@25 is available in a variety of collector’s editions – signed deluxe CD, coloured vinyl box-set, a deluxe multi-format bundle, on cassette, with exclusive merchandise and more. Full details can be found at https://skunkanansie.tmstor.es/
