Skunk Anansie Release New Video For This Means War
Just days after Skunk Anansie announced details of 2020 headline tour, the Britrock icons have dropped a new video for their track This Means War.
The video was filmed at Pol’and’Rock festival last year, where Skunk played as part of their 25LIVE@25 anniversary tour.
“We wrote this track just before we went on tour last summer,” says vocalist Skin. “It totally stood out as a fan favourite and never left the setlist. So we’re really happy to release a finished version, produced by the magnificent Tom Dalgety!”
This Means War is the follow-up to Skunk Anansie’s first new music in three years, What You Do For Love, which was released in 2019. Both will be available as part of a double A‑side vinyl in April, which is available to pre-order now.
Vocalist Skin has also revealed that her very first memoir – which was co-written by journalist and friend Lucy O’Brien – is set to be published in September 2020, and will “chart Skin’s unique story from her working class Brixton roots to the Glastonbury and international stage”.

Skunk Anansie vocalist Skin reflects on her upbringing in South London, the power of anger, how the band changed over time and why the world is still completely screwed…
Misfits, outcasts, outsiders… Whatever you want to call them, Saint Agnes have always lived on the fringes of society, and with new record Vampire, they’re aiming for the big time.
