GROUP BIO:

".. Formed in the Washington DC suburb of Alexandria Va in the spring of 2009, Skelliton came
together as a way to make music the band members wanted to hear. A sonic mix of street punk
and funk, fast and slow tempos, aggressive and passive, poetic anguish and pleasure - music that
is full of surprises.


Mike Miguel's lyrics and original voice soar over Skelliton's exciting music,
Amy Running Colt's earnest and colorful bass work sits perfectly on top of Matthew Bones
passionate and unique drum style. Ever since their first show in August of 2009,
the Skelliton live show has been completely booked solid. One of the most rewarding pleasures
of the band is the literal hundreds of bands they've made friends and shared the stage with..
The shared idea that they are not alone in their desire to provide awesome, creative, meaningful
and mind-blowing entertainment.

Signed and held at bay by legendary art maverick Ross Nathan and his French-Army Records label,
Skelliton compulsively writes and releases new material for them, leaving their mainstream corporate
contemporaries in the dust. Their first album "America's Newest Sound" was released
in 2010 .. listening to the 10 songs on the album today, you can practically feel the
wood chips flying off the table and hitting you in the face as Skelliton sculpts their sound ..


2011 saw the release of the classic "Skelliton Hits the Bricks" album .. the 10 songs an ode to city life
and the challenges of finding freedom in the urban environment.


2012 saw the release of the wild and wonderful "Let's Have It" .. the 9 songs composing
a punk throwback album filled with unexpected treasures.


"Dragon Wheels" released in 2014, was a juicy, unlikely mixed bag of prog rock funk and punk .. on these
10 songs, Skelliton reaches some of it's highest emotional highs and lows


Skelliton is a living breathing musical project, committed to originality and excitement, aided by
electric guitars, wires, drums and modern technology, ball point pens and many many sheets of paper.
Aided by the many wonderful music venues that welcome them back every year, and those
venues who welcome Skelliton for the first time, Skelliton gets in and gets out,
leaving only the glorious vapors of their bombastic performance.


Some may run for the hills, disbelieving and dismissive of what they see and hear, while others
remain loyal converts - amazed by the band's commitment to excellence.."
