Skin Tuxedo is uncompromising Danish alternative rock/stoner.
The bands goal is to make relevant and honest music, whether it´s beautiful, atmospheric and melancholic songs or just plain rock songs. With their unique songwriting they offer something different than today´s mainsteram music.
The band started as a solo project by Ivan Boel Stenger in 2012 and signed with Sliptrick Records later that year.
June 2013 Ivan started a collaboration with guitarist Jesper Dalsgaard. The 2 musicians decided to start as an acoustic duo. But soon after they felt the need to go back to the roots of Skin Tuxedo, or what Ivan had intended in the first place: To play ROCK!
Juli 2014 drummer Frank Hansen joined the band.
Bassist Henrik “Duplo” Sørensen joined the band in december 2014 to complete the line-up. With the new line-up they quickly began writing a bunch of songs, that would take the band to a new level with more heavy sounds.
Skin Tuxedo is a blessing for modern rock and roll, the project doesn’t succumb and conform to all the bland trends found so prominently in today’s music. The result is music full of twisted guitars, trippy vocals, and eccentric song structures, sure to please even the most discriminating alternative rock fan.” Rick Jamm, Jamsphere
Skin Tuxedo will keep challenging themselves and the listener with original music.
