My favorite ne'er-do-wells have returned with a new album! Skunkmello are hard-luck cowboys, southern souls in the big city and they represent the best of what the old south has to offer in midst of all that hard rock, indie and pop. There's something magical about working with Gotham's best best blues and country-rock that makes us tingle. Call it my appreciation of the cowboy epic and a healthy appreciation of barbecue. Maybe it's the just the slower pace here and the knowledge that winter is over, but we're really excited for the new 'Mello album, Hot Chicken - out this June.
For the last two years, Skunkmello have been a fixture of The Outlaw Roadshow and have proven time and again to be one of the most well-loved stage acts on our stages. This world premiere is just a taste of the reason why..It's a slower life and a dedication to the outcome that matter. Highway 17 features Glenn Spivack on pedal steel. The man's one of the few, great working pedal steel players based in New York - like this band, he's one of a kind!
Pull up a seat kids, because this is southern hospitality.
