The Skints - 'Live. Breathe. Build. Believe.'

Format : CD and Download
Catalogue # : REBL011
Release Date : 9th November 2009

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’) 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.

‘Live. Breathe. Build. Believe.’ is scheduled for release on Monday 9th November with The Skints first ever UK headline tour starting on 12th November. Can The Skints debut album ‘Live. Breathe. Build. Believe.’ on Rebel Alliance Recordings possibly live up to all this hype?

In a word, yes!
