Skellums was formed because “there was nothing else left to do”.
The band strive to produce music with dignity and meaning rather than aspiring to join the long list of bands who have success, but nothing to say.
Forming their own record label Rent & Debt Records, their mission is to take on the world, one little venue at a time.
Underneath all the dirty guitars and pounding drums, there lives a pop song. Skellums believe, that as long as you have a decent melody, you can get away with all manner of noise. Pop songs with dignity.
In a world where every band has the same barber, and shares the same River Island gift card, Skellums are a little different. They may be a little rough around the edges, a bit pissed off and scruffy, but they certainly have something to say.
