Skew Ring – The Shout-out Episode

S7 E37

Whoa baby boy did we have some fun with this week’s guest, Skew Ring! Little is known about this mysterious five piece band out of Reno, Nevada. That’s what we’re here for! By the end of this episode you will know far too much. Sorry, not sorry. Listen up to hear what the excellent Reno rock band, Skew Ring, has to say/play (spoilers: it’s mostly gay jokes).

Providing a fresh, apathetic sound in an apathetic marketplace is Drew – vocals; Cole/Honkey – bass; Jimmy “not gay but not afraid” – guitar; Adin/Cheech Marin -guitar; Baby-face Ben – drums.

Skew Ring has been around a short time and even after this podcast, little is still known about these elusive beasts. They have recently played The Saint and The Holland Project and there’s talk of an EP coming out soon. Keep an eye on their Instagram for updates on where you can see them in the wild. And trust me, you should definitely see them in the wild.

Thanks for coming on the show, Skew Ring!
