Post-hardcore breakouts SKYWALKER unleash new single JUSTIFY ME feat. Kassim Auale of Alazka and set off new EU/UK tour.
SKYWALKER. If you’re a fan of face melting riffs and massive breakdowns blended with soothing and mesmerizing vocals chemistry into post-hardcore, look no further. Intensity of the heavy passages is combined with the emotion of sweet melodies and soaring melodic injections along with honest lyrics revolving around alienation, loneliness, individuality that might hit close to home for some people. The passion the band has, and how it’s delivered, are what makes them stand out.
Hailing from Prague/Liverpool, the quartet has been knocking around since 2011 starting out as die-hard punk rock fans. Gathering an increasing fan base all around Europe, UK and overseas, the band of Jay, Tom, David and Damian has been touring extensively as far as Canada, China and Japan. They have been sharing the stage with iconic names such as For The Fallen Dreams, Asking Alexandria, NOFX, Pennywise, Madball, Sick of it All and more.
Among their releases: A Better Place (acoustic single), Arkham EP (2011), Babylon EP (2012), Liberty Island (2014), Ellis EP (2015), Sugar House EP (2017). The quartet is back in 2019 with single IGNIS released in April and most recent single JUSTIFY ME out on October 4th, 2019 via an official music video featuring Kassim Auale of Alazka and motion graphics.
Lyrically, JUSTIFY ME approaches the theme of supporting the equality in sexual orientation, gender identity and expression of love. It’s dealing with loneliness due to discrimination and finding your own identity against bigotry and prejudice.
