New York, NY – May 11, 2017 – Skating Polly are thrilled to announce an extensive UK and European summer tour with Kate Nash! In addition to joining Nash for a month of dates, the band will also play a handful of shows with Hands Off Gretel as well as several headlining dates. The overseas tour news comes as Skating Polly wraps a short run with the legendary Xand kicks off their US headlining tour tonight in Minneapolis at the iconic 7th Street Entry.
Skating Polly dropped their New Trick EP – featuring Louise Post and Nina Gordon fromVeruca Salt and produced by Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Sunny Day Real Estate, Smashing Pumpkins) – on April 28th via El Camino Media. They kicked off news of the EP via NPR who premiered the video for “Hail Mary,” noting that the song “…showcases Skating Polly's characteristic moodiness, as well the more subtle layers of harmonies that Post and Gordon brought to the new songs.” Post wrote about how she and Gordon first hooked up with Kelli Mayo (17) and Peyton Bighorse (21) and gave a really great account of their experience working together for The Talkhouse last week, read HERE.
Kelli and Peyton’s brother Kurtis Mayo (20) officially joined the band following the recording of the new EP and has been on the road with them since they started touring in support of New Trick on May 1st. The EP is out digitally and physically via El Camino Media, with the vinyl including a B-side etching hand-drawn by the band – which can be purchased HERE.
