“Since their 2009 inception, Scranton-based grime-rock outfit Skin-n-Bones has preached the gospel of “dirty” rock ‘n roll – it’s emblazoned on their merch, and it’s smudged into their Les Paul-laced, Marlboro-ashed aura. If you can imagine the knock-kneed swagger of the late Scott Weiland fronting the Rolling Stones circa 1969, in all their drug-hazed fury, then you get what Skin-n-Bones is about.If rock ‘n roll is dead, then Skin-n-Bones never got the memo. The band turns a blind eye to contemporary musical trends and wisely follows its own path, carving out a very distinct slice of musical pie in the NEPA original landscape.”

“Skin-n-Bones strips rock to its barest essence. For the past seven years, the Scranton-based quintet built a hardcore following around its self-described brand of “dirty rock and roll.”he band just released its newest album, “Listen Up.” Members held a CD release party Saturday night for the album, which can be purchased at all Gallery of Sound locations and online at CD Baby, iTunes and Amazon. Skin-n-Bones worked with well known producer and musician Bret Alexander, formerly of the Badlees.”

““If you want to talk about skilled veterans of the scene, look no further than Skin-n-Bones. The band is filled with decades of experience and their performances are in par with the likes of Whitesnake or Thin Lizzy.””

“PAUL DAVIES THE DRUMMER HAD MENTIONED WHEN I ASKED HIM WHO HAVE YOU OPENED UP FOR HE SAID "SWEET CYANIDE, ADLER'S APPETITE, POP EVIL, QUEENSRYCHE, GREAT WHITE. IN THE NEAR FUTURE THEY ARE GOING TO BE OPENING UP FOR JACKYL”

““I’ve been affected by flooding before,” said Rob Rosencrans, singer for Skin-n-Bones, a Scranton rock band that will be playing a separate flood relief concert at Diane’s Deli & Internet Café in Pittston on Saturday, Oct. 22.”

“INK and ROCK EXPO Rob Rosencrans, vocalist for the Scranton-based Skin-n-Bones, said that an event like this is a perfect match for the band, which he described as having a dirty rock sound similar to AC/DC, Buckcherry and The Rolling Stones. ”

“Skin-N-Bones is based out of Scranton and was formed in April of 2009. On April 2, 2010 — just one year after forming — the band released its first EP, “Dirty,” featuring the songs “Baby R U Ready,” “Time Goes On,” “Sweet Talker” and “Main Train.” The EP, says Rosencrans, was the first step of a long term plan. “We decided to do a four-song EP to try and build a fan base,” he says. “And it’s actually worked really well. The clubs are filling up. Every time we play, they’re coming to see us.” ”
