After recording, releasing and performing 3 of the most iconic and indeed mainstream Rock albums of all time Skunk Anansie are back in a way no one expected them to be. “Wonderlustre” is the fi rst studio release in more than 10 years following the release of “Post Orgasmic Chill” (1999) and it is like that ‘fi rst album’ all over again. Skunk Anansie provide a new sound that no one would expect from this collective of animalistic Rock’n’Roll heathens. It is a modern, melodic yet Dark Rock masterpiece consisting of the right amount of elements that you want in a Skunk record.
“Wonderlustre” is progressive in terms of the breadth of their back catalogue, it is relevant in today’s mélange of guitar and vocal landscapes, it is strong and fi erce and completely full of massive emotive expression – it is a Skunk Anansie record which will once more break down all boundaries and will once more captivate the people in every corner of the world.
“Wonderlustre” is not only a results of the amazing songwriter skills of the band but also a result of the production collaboration between Skunk and the Grammy-nominated Jeremy Wheatley (Depeche Mode, Sugababes, One Night Only, Empire Of The Sun), Chris Sheldon (Foo fi ghters, Biffy Clyro, Radiohead, Pixies) and Cenzo Townshend (Jim Kerr, U2, Florence & The Machine, Snow Patrol, Kaiser Chiefs) plus renowned programmer and engineer Brio Taliaferro (Newton Faulkner, Tina Dico, Moby, Ladyhawke). “Wonderlustre” is a recorded representation of a band changing and yet somehow still retaining the relevance it once had, ultimately sweeping them into the world of contemporary Rock of all kinds.
