 Skint And Demoralised (Support)

July 10th

Following a six-year hiatus, Skint & Demoralised returned with brand new single 'Boro Kitchen 4am' on 29 March. After receiving heavy airplay on BBC Radio 6Music from one of the band's old champions Steve Lamacq, they follow it up with second single '#RefugeesWelcome' on 14 June (available to pre-order here via all platforms).

This will be their first live performance up north for 6 years, in their native West Yorkshire nevertheless. Support comes from two of West Yorkshire's finest spoken word artists, Kirsty Taylor and Simon Widdop.
