SKUNK ANANSIE To Release New Album 'Anarchytecture' In January

British rockers SKUNK ANANSIE will release their sixth studio album, "Anarchytecture", on January 15, 2016. The follow-up to 2012's "Black Traffic" was produced by Tom Dalgety (ROYAL BLOOD, KILLING JOKE, BAND OF SKULLS) at RAK Studios in London, with mixing duties divided between Dalgety and Jeremy Wheatley, and mastering set to be handled by the legendary Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York. The new CD is described in a press release 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."

"Anarchytecture" features SKUNK ANANSIE's regular lineup of Skin, guitarist Ace, bassist Cass and drummer Mark Richardson.

The release of "Anarchytecture" will be supported by a full European headline tour, including two dates in the U.K.

Meanwhile, Skin is currently appearing as a judge on the Italian version of "The X Factor", having studied Italian following the invitation to get involved; she also features on the cover of this month's issue of the Italian Vanity Fair.
