Skating Polly have announced that they’ll head out on a UK and European tour later this year.

The trio of Kelli Mayo, Peyton Bighorse and Kurtis Mayo will release their new album The Make It All Show tomorrow across Europe (April 11) via El Camino Media, with the band previously sharing the tracks Hollywood Factory and Queen For A Day from the record.

And to mark the tour announcement, they've released a new video for Little Girl Blue And The Battle Envy, which can be seen below.

Speaking about the track, Kelli Mayo says: “On the surface it’s about a soldier who would rather live with the shame of leaving her post or even a life sentence, than deal with all the pressure and commands that come with the ‘glory.’

“I guess on a more personal level it came from a place of feeling like no one was letting me make choices for myself and I was just being yanked into a billion different directions based on what they thought I should be.”

Earlier this week, Skating Polly sat down with Louder to give a track-by-track guide to The Make It All Show.
