London “tropical punk” four-piece The Skints drop the second limited-edition 45 to accompany their hit new album ‘Swimming Lessons’.
Off the back of sold-out shows across the UK, Europe and US, it was clear that ‘Armageddon’ was becoming a firm fan favourite and needed to have a dedicated vinyl press. It sees the band compose a prescient commentary on the stress of watching the most powerful people in the world exchange fighting talk. The end is nigh when the red buttons get pushed and nothing will save us!
Jamaica’s rising star Runkus comes through with a killer feature where he too lays down a blistering take on the topical subject matter. The chorus owes a nod to the legendary Sister Nancy for the original lyric and for being a career-long inspiration to the band. The original is backed by a sound system shaking dub version provided courtesy of Gentleman’s Dub Club. It completes a package that will become an essential collectable for Skints’ fans, as well as a must-have for in-the-know reggae devotees.
