Australia’s Skegss return to the UK with a run of shows following the release of last year’s ‘Rehearsal’.

Skegss have been kicking around for a while. With three albums under their belt, as well as a Triple J live album, and multiple No. 1 singles on the ARIA (Australian Recording Industry Association) charts, they have built a large following. 

In March 2021, Skegss dropped ‘Rehearsal‘, their third album. It is fun, catchy and their laid back style of indie-rock sounds effortless. It is a perfect statement of what the Byron Bay band wants to achieve. Their sound is classic, while remaining fresh enough to keep you interested. Fans of Cage the Elephant and The Vaccines will feel very much at home with Skegss

Now, after a couple of years of being unable to tour, Skegss return to the UK to show off their live energy and tour this album. The tour includes multiple iconic venues, like London’s Electric Ballroom and Bristol’s legendary boat/venue Thekla. 

Skegss have won over Australia’s hearts and now, with these UK shows, they hope to spread their charm a little further.
