New Skew Siskin Video Features A Cameo From Lemmy
January 30, 2014
Skew Siskin have released a video for the song “Riding With The Devil”, featuring a guest appearance by Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister. The track first appeared on the German band’s 2007 album ‘Peace Breaker’, which is among their back catalog that was recently re-released at CDBaby.com..
Skew Siskin were scheduled to open for Motorhead and Saxon early this year, but the tour was cancelled to allow Lemmy to deal with a range of health issues relating to diabetes. With time on their hands Skew Siskin have decided to enter the studio to record the follow-up to ‘Peace Breaker’.
“Many of you have already learned that the tour is cancelled, that Lemmy’s doctors have advised him to not tour that soon, that he’s making good progress in recovery on one side, but on the other, it is not going as fast as everyone was hoping,” said Skew Siskin vocalist Nina C. Alice. “Knowing him for half my life, I reassure it is absolutely the hardest for him to cancel a tour. This was NOT an easy decision! I have to confess: my worries have been stronger than the perspective of a great tour. Remember, he’s had the defillibrator put in only last year, plus long-time trouble with diabetes (type 2). This is always a bad combination especially at age 68. And he’s still stronger than many other 68 year young men! Still, he’s a phenomena. Of course it’s sad to not go on tour now, especially with such a great line-up.”
Skew Siskin dealt with their own health issues late last year when Alice fell down a flight of stairs while vacationing in Spain and suffered broken ribs. Due to the accident and health care costs, the band ran out of money and were forced to cancel several tourdates. To add insult to injury, shortly after the injury the group’s recording studio was flooded and damaged.
