[B]rooklyn (shocker) band The Skins are prepping for an opening tour with Jake Bugg and have recently released a new tune, “Dead Hands,” that caught my ear. The very young band seems to be on the fast track as they’ve caught the ear of now producer, Rick Rubin, who is helping the band record new music as well as Shepard Fairey who is designing their tour stickers, logos and shirts. If all of this sounds nuts, just press play, and you can definitely hear the potential of a band who is really young (age range 15-21.. yikes!) and is already putting together some good music. Lead singer Bayli Mckeithan is enough to palette a huge sound, but with the ever increasing intensity on “Dead Hands,” its easy to see this band is going to do something big this year.
