Hello there

Is it just possible that with ‘Live. Breathe. Build. Believe’ The Skints have created the classic debut album? All the hallmarks are here; raw, unbridled energy and unflinching sincerity over the bedrock of an exciting new musical voice. Fresh yet familiar, The Skints bridge the gap between early UK reggae classics (think UB40’s ‘Present Arms’ and Steel Pulse’s ‘Handsworth Revolution&rsquo and the contemporary, conscious street-sounds of The King Blues and Sonic Boom Six while adding a cheeky twist of Lily Allen’s ‘Alright, Still’ modern ska-pop. In any other hands, dub-soaked tales on the options and outlook of London youth – from violence and drugs to job-prospects and the telly - could fall very far of the mark but 'Live. Breathe. Build. Believe.’ hits the spot because we’re hearing it straight from the real thing; the London youth themselves.



London punky reggae rockers The Skints debut album 'Live. Breathe. Build. Believe' is released November 9th on Rebel Alliance Recordings.

Right now you can head over to the Rebel Alliance Recordings myspace HERE to hear an album taster track featuring samples from every song on 'Live. Breathe. Build. Believe.' You can also hear another track from the album, 'Contemplations of the Modern Rude Boy', in the same place.

If you like what you hear, why not click the banner at the top of the page and pre-order the Skints debut in a digipak signed by the full band with FREE P&P?!

Thanks for reading, enjoy the tunes!

Hey guys

Sorry about the advertising. Didn't mean to do anything particularly spammy, this is a great record and I think that most of the punk fans in the UK will be interested in hearing it. I'm very much up for discussing the guitar!

The link is http://www.myspace.com/rebelalliancerecordings for the record, that extra forward slash is a bitch!

EDIT: BTW hello there everyone. Sorry, I should have introduced us. Basically, we're Rebel Alliance Recordings who are run by Manc punks Sonic Boom Six and whose roster includes Random Hand, The Babylon Whackers, Mouthwash and now, the Skints.

I've seen that in the past people have requested tabs by SB6 and Mouthwash so hopefully I could help with that if the time arises. And yeah, I've already looked through the forum and seen a lot of the negativity towards SB6 from a few regulars (which it seemed is perpetrated by the same three kids TBH) and I'm certainly not here to argue with anyone and definitely draw a line at personal insults etc. so hopefully I can be nice and we can all get along.

Thanks for reading.

God, you're so punx aren't you.
This is why I rarely post in this forum. I bet you haven't even bothered checking out the bands have you? The Skints are f*cking awesome.

But you can sit and home and go "blah, blah, welcome to the internet, I'm a twat" and miss out on awesome music if you like. Moron.

CBGB wants to be famous like the others such as Green Day and Offspring. They don't want to be a underground punk band.

Oh look, it's another loser who yells at everyone who disagrees with them. Neat.

The Skints fucking suck. They are boring and I couldn't give less of a fuck about their music.

I listen to punk, not this boring crap.

No, I just really don't see the point in posting insults in a thread. If you don't like the band, fair enough, but why bother posting moronic comments IN A THREAD ABOUT THE BAND? That's just pathetic.

I can't stand the majority of the punk bands that are posted about, but do you see me whingeing? NO. So get the f*ck out of the ska threads!

Everytime there's FINALLY a thread about decent UK ska, it always gets destroyed by punx morons going 'you suck'. 'sonic boom shit' .... etc. Just STAY THE F*CK OUT. and let people who LIKE the bands post in the thread!

First off, this person came into this forum and advertised. That is against the rules. This thread will be closed eventually.

Second off, I like decent ska music. Just not this boring crap that you think is good.

And third off, fuck off.

Your favorite bands are boring and generic.
Also, I don't like your excessive usage of the shift key.

How ironic that the girl with hot-pink hair, a rainbow bead necklace, and hideous makeup would say that.

^That's prolly a little uncalled for man.
Personal insults don't really make this forum any better.

It's obviously not just you, I know her comment did the same thing.
