If their folk debut celebrated the sticks & their punkier second blinked in the bright lights of London, their rocked-up third, sees them go global.

From the fiery Elvis-gone-folk roar of opener 'Wanted' – Dan saluting London, New York & Cairo in a song "about looking for life in the cities we'd visit" - 'The Devil, The Heart & The Fight' comes out fists first. A mature, vibrant & varied record, it mingles classic Skinny folk romances ('Grace', 'Reunion') with epic rock takes on rafter-rattling shanties ('Beat It On The Chest') & hearty Dexys-style tributes to the fans they meet on the road ('Fair Winds & Following Seas'), plus a hitherto unseen darker side. 'The Devil, The Heart & The Fight' is like Skinny's previous albums gone backpacking; expanding its horizons, full of adventure, discovering itself & doing things it regrets in the morning.
