Glitter Rockers Glam Skanks Coming to San Francisco with Adam Ant

in Music News by

 

Following their performance as an opener for Alice Cooper and recent West Coast tour, Hollywood glitter-rockers Glam Skanks have announced their North American tour in January/February, 2017 as direct support for pop icon Adam Ant for his 35th anniversary “Kings Of The Wild Frontier” tour.

The band is set to perform Tuesday Feb. 2, at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

On “Glitter City”, produced by Bruce Witkin and Ryan Dorn, Glam Skanks offer music influenced by T Rex, The Runaways, David Bowie and The Sweet with the rock sensibility of Aerosmith wrapped in a full-blown cosmetic Rocky Horror show meets Hedwig androgyny. A press release that went out calls the up and coming all female band “Like a rock and rollercoaster ride in a blazing cloud of feather-boa glitter with a swagger that screams Sunset Strip dreams and Hollywood nights, the album is Drag Rock for the masses.”

 

In addition to the “Glitter City” album, their “Miss Androgynous” single is also featured in director Kevin Smith’s new movie “Yoga Hosers” starring Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith with Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler and Adam Brody.

Smith recently invited the band to contribute a version of “The Hockey Song” in the movie and both tracks, along with “This Dead Man”, are included on the “Yoga Hosers” soundtrack.
