Though the first (solo) recordings were done in 2008, the Skeptics started playing live shows in June 2011. They are now celebrating their six years as a band with their new self-titled record, and fourth album, out on Beast and Juvenile Delinquent Records. The nine tracks filling the gap between ‘Fuzz Punk’ and ‘Heavy Garage’ have come a long way from the Revival kind of sound of their first efforts. The overall sound here is more contemporary, with the bass heavier and the fuzz thicker. This LP, recorded by none other than the master, Lo’Spider, and housed in a sleeve designed by Hélène Jeudy will please both the Spits’ fanatics and the early-Dead Meadow lovers.
