Reunited '90s British rockers SKUNK ANANSIE will release a new song, "Tear The Place Up", this coming week. The band says, "It's the first of three new songs we'll be releasing from our forthcoming 'greatest-hits' album, due later in the year."MySpace will be hosting the video for "Tear The Place Up" exclusively for one week starting Monday, July 6. SKUNK ANANSIE will embark on the "Greatest Hits Tour" in October/November. The band played two low-key shows London's Water Rats venue on April 2 and April 3 under the pseudonym S.C.A.M. (a combination of the first-name initials of the four bandmembers). SKUNK ANANSIE — vocalist Skin (Deborah Dyer), bassist Cass (Richard Lewis), guitarist Ace (Martin Kent) and drummer Mark Richardson — split up in 2001 but announced last September that they were writing new material together. SKUNK ANANSIE was named after the West African folk tales of Anansie the spider-man, with "skunk" added to "make the name nastier." Video footage of SKUNK ANANSIE performing the song "Charlie Big Potato" in London in April 2009 can be viewed below.
