Skating Polly is excited to drop the official music video for “Free Will At Ease” today and announce the winter West Coast leg of their headline tour with Potty Mouth as main support. The US trek comes on the heels of a European and UK tour that had Skating Polly hitting London, Paris and even the Netherlands. This is the band’s second US run this year with Potty Mouth, who joined them on June 1st, just a few weeks after the May 4th release of their fifth full-length studio albumThe Make It All Show via El Camino Media.
“Free Will At East” is the fifth music video the band has released from the new album and it’s premiering today via a feature with Ladygunn Magazine – click HERE to watch and read.
The trio has been on a tear since the start of 2018 when they first hit the road with The Go! Team and NPR premiered the first video from the new album – “Queen For A Day” – a song they co-wrote with X’s Exene Cervenka who also sings on the track. They hit the road withCharly Bliss on May 2nd just two days before The Make It All Show dropped.
Accolades poured in for the band’s new LP. Interview Magazine ran a feature on release day saying “The 11 amped-up tracks touch on anger and vulnerability and growing up, in very personal terms,” while Noisey described the Skating Polly as “the heroes of your favorite alt-comic book made flesh,” adding that they “get it exactly right on The Make It All Show.” More love has come in this year from the likes of Stereogum, PREMIERGuitar, and The Current.
Skating Polly ended the summer making their debut appearance at Seattle’s Bumbershoot Festival. “Skating Polly rips. That is all,” wrote the Seattle Weekly and ahead of the appearance, they played their first session for KEXP – Seattle’s influential public radio station.
As they continue their trajectory upwards, be sure to catch Skating Polly on the road this winter kicking things off on November 30th in Bellingham, WA with Potty Mouth.
