“As my pop continued to struggle with various health issues, I was imagining what my life would be like without him and how terribly I’d miss him. While the song is incredibly personal, I think anyone can relate to the idea of having a profound loss in their life.

A fully-hollow sixteen-inch-wide and nearly three-inch-deep body paired with the D’Angelico Shield Tremolo offers acoustic warmth and waves of sustain, all while a slim neck profile and ebony fingerboard promise player-friendly comfort.

“Somehow out of a truck full of guitars, this ONE pallet was singled out and stolen at a truck stop,” says Sweetwater Chief Supply Chain and Merchandising Officer Phil Rich. “Totaling close to $95,000 in guitars, we feel this person/s knew exactly what to look for and when.”
Skink Tank are three mates who like lizards and playing music together. Their style is punchy, defiantly optimistic and full of life, as they explore the wimpy side of pub rock.
Psychic Hysteria is thrilled to be releasing Skink Tank’s debut EP on a limited run of cassettes and digitally November 27. The Skink Tank EP is a collection of catchy tracks that wants you to feel like it’s okay not to feel okay, and that you can even have fun with it.
