The Scranton-based quintet built a hardcore following around its self-described brand of “dirty rock and roll.”
The band just released its newest album of, “Listen Up.”
For “Listen Up,” Skin-n-Bones worked with well known producer and musician Bret Alexander, formerly of the Badlees.
Made up of veteran local musicians — Rob Rosencrans on lead vocals, Donny Engle on guitar, Todd Costantino on bass guitar, Paul Davies on drums and John Roman on guitar — Skin-n-Bones formed in 2009. Inspired by legendary acts like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Aerosmith and Guns N’ Roses, the band made a commitment to churning out “live, in-your-face rock and roll,”The band released its debut EP in 2010 while slowly building a fanbase. They helped their cause by landing opening slots for several national touring acts, including Charm City Devils, the Romantics, Jackyl, Queensryche, Tantric, Great White, Pop Evil, and Trapt. Like those bands, Skin-n-Bones’ set lists consist entirely of original songs — no covers. Meanwhile, the band is now in the process of booking a series of gigs in the coming months to promote “Listen Up.”
