SKEGSS are stoked to add a string of Under 18’s shows to their ‘Holiday Food’ EP Tour including Sydney event ‘Spaghetti Fest’. The announcement comes on the back of a huge reaction to their capital city run with Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane going into multiple shows and the band hearing the call from their younger fans. Toby Cregan
“There isn’t enough shows put on for kids and all the fucking grown-ups make it hard to put on gigs for em, so bands are probs just like “Nah fuck it”. ….. We have put in a bit of extra work and made sure we can play to everyone that wants to listen and have a good time…. If I hadn’t gone to the all ages shows that my fav bands were putting on when I was a teenager I wouldn’t be in the band now, so it seems important to play these shows on the tour”.
SKEGSS – Ben Reed (vocals, guitar), Toby Cregan (bass) and Jonny Lani (drums) – have made a name for themselves with energetic, ripping live performances, garnering praise from The Music for their “infectious” on-stage chemistry and Moshcam who asserted they “seem to have some sort of hypnotic effect over their fans.”.
On April 7 SKEGSS released third EP ‘Holiday Food‘, featuring singles ‘Spring Has Sprung’ & ‘Got On My Skateboard’ both of which spent the first half of 2017 on high rotation on triple j, with Spring Has Sprung’ ranking in their Top 10 of 2017’s Most Played Songs for over 8 weeks. The band have their eyes firmly set on international domination and will be touring Europe and the UK for the very first time this May including the London Calling Festival in Amsterdam, before returning to Australia to take ‘Holiday Food’ to the masses.
Along for the Under 18’s shows are special guests Pist Idiots for shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth with the bill expanding for Spaghetti Fest in Sydney to SKEGSS, Baxter, Flowertruck, Fritz, Good Boy, Los Scallywags, Pist Idiots, Ruby Fields, The Pinheads & Totty.
