Pop icon Adam Ant announced that LA Glitter-rockers Glam Skanks (www.GlamSkanks.com) are joining him as direct support for the January/February 2017 North American leg of his 35th anniversary Kings of the Wild Frontier tour. Glam Skanks have also opened for Alice Cooper, played as Cherie Curry’s backup band, have a new song in Kevin Smith’s new “Yoga Hosers” movie, hung out with celebs like Johnny Depp and just released their new album “Glitter City”.
Glam Skanks will hit the road in support of their new album, “Glitter City”, featuring their new single, “Bad Bitch”.
On “Glitter City”, produced by Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, Glam Skanks create a technicolor audiovisual feast using familiar tints from T Rex, The Runaways, David Bowie and The Sweet with the genuine rock sensibility of Aerosmith wrapped in a full-blown cosmetic Rocky Horror show meets Hedwig androgyny. Like a rock and rollercoaster ride in a blazing cloud of feather-boa glitter with a swagger that screams Sunset Strip dreams and Hollywood nights, the album is Drag Rock for the masses.
In addition to the “Glitter City” album, their “Miss Androgynous” single is also featured in director Kevin Smith’s new movie “Yoga Hosers” starring Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith with Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler and Adam Brody.
Smith recently invited the band to contribute a version of “The Hockey Song” in the movie and both tracks, along with “This Dead Man”, are included on the “Yoga Hosers” soundtrack. The band recently performed the songs during the East Coast “Yoga Hosers” premiere at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ.
Glam Skanks are Millie (Bass), Ali Cat (Vocals), V (Guitar) and Jaxine Sparkles (Drums).
