Skating Polly Announce More North American Headline Dates in June & July Including New York, Toronto, Chicago, Atlanta, DC, St. Louis, and more!

Chaos County Line Double LP – out June 23rd on El Camino Media

SkatingPolly-TravisTrautt 3

Skating Polly have announced more NA headline dates kicking off on June 22nd in Minneapolis, MN at 7th Street Entry. The June and July trek include stops at St. Vitus in Brooklyn, NY, The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA, the Middle East in Boston, Beat Kitchen in Chicago and Bovine Sex Club in Toronto. In addition, the first show of this second leg comes a day before the band’s new double album Chaos County Line is set to be released via El Camino Media.

The new album is the band’s first in five years and follows 2018’s The Make It All Show. Working again with Brad Wood, the acclaimed producer behind indie-rock classics like Liz Phair’s Exile in GuyvilleChaos Country Line sees their songs journey from art-punk to noise-rock to piano-driven power-pop, matching that musical complexity with a sharply honed narrative voice that manifests in countless forms (ultravivid poetry, diary-like confession, fearlessly detailed storytelling, etc.).

Over the past decade, few artists have embodied the unbridled freedom of punk like Skating Polly. Formed when stepsisters Kelli Mayo and Peyton Bighorse were just 9 and 14, the band have channeled their chameleonic musicality into a sound they call “Ugly Pop,” unruly and subversive and wildly melodic. With Kelli’s brother Kurtis Mayo joining on drums in 2017, they’ve also built a close-knit community of fans while earning the admiration of their musical forebears, a feat that’s found them collaborating with icons like X’s Exene Cervenka and Beat Happening’s Calvin Johnson, touring with Babes In Toyland, and starring as the subject of a feature-length documentary. On their forthcoming double album Chaos County Line, Skating Polly reach a whole new level of self-possession, ultimately sharing their most expansive and emotionally powerful work to date.
