– Announce October European tour
including UK dates
– Share new single “Flyer”
Released on El Camino Media
US punk rock trio Skating Polly have announced details of a new European tour kicking off this October, including a string of live dates across the UK.
Alongside the tour news the band have also shared a new single “Flyer”, the counter-part to track “Play House“which the band dropped at the start of the month.“Flyer” sees siblings Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse share vocal duties whilst Kurt Mayo drums, on a track that contrasts bright pop sensibilities with their characteristic boisterous and bold grunge tinged punk.
Commenting on the track, the band Kelli said:“Flyer” is about this overwhelming self consciousness and agoraphobia that’s been hitting me a lot lately. I was scared to leave the house, scared to see my friends, scared to make decisions of any kind. That led to writers block because I wouldn’t stick with any choices. So I made a deal with myself. “Play House” was gonna be a straight forward song structure with playful and abstract lyrics and “Flyer” would have a very abstract song structure and very personal sincere lyrics. Peyton wrote my favourite part of the whole song “I’ve had more than enough time to learn what I felt was not a thought crime”.
