Australian rock and roll themed band Skegss have shared a new anthem for those who long for Friday night to come. “Save It For The Weekend” features their signature fun-time punk and catchy hooks and the standalone single comes just in time to get people ready for their North American tour beginning next month.

LISTEN TO “SAVE IT FOR THE WEEKEND”

Skegss’ highly anticipated return to the US includes stops at Los Angeles’s El Rey, Chicago’s Bottom Lounge and NYC’s Bowery Ballroom. Hailing from and around Byron Bay, the band is known for their dizzyingly energetic sets and in the past year alone have seen the venues they play jump in size to nearly 6,000 in Australia. These forthcoming November shows will be Skegss’ biggest rooms yet in the US. Visit www.skegss.com for more info.

Skegss is Ben Reed (vocals, guitar), Toby Cregan (bass) and Jonny Lani (drums). Formed in 2014, the band first charmed listeners with a series of EPs, before releasing their riotous-yet-nostalgic sugar-rush of a debut album, My Own Mess. The album is bursting with youth, sunshine and unabashed punk rock hits, with Clash calling it “the new album of the summer” and features stand out single “Up In The Clouds,” as well as tracks “Paradise” and “Stop.” The collection of 15 tracks are the sound of walking the tightrope of reckless abandon, but with one eye looking back at what you’ve done the night before.
