Skunk Anansie confirm album and European tour

Skunk Anansie have confirmed the launch of their sixth album, Anarchytecture.

It’s to be launched on January 15, ahead of a European tour which kicks off with two UK dates.

The band’s management describe Anarchytecture as “a collection of hard-hitting alternative rock anthems, brimming with punchy riffs and the sort of fire that can only burn from the heart and soul of vocal powerhouse, Skin.”

The follow-up to 2012’s Black Traffic was produced by Royal Blood and Killing Joke engineer Tom Dalgety at RAK Studios in London, with mixing duties divided between Dalgety and Jeremy Wheatley. Mastering will be handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York.
