Matt Skiba and the Sekrets ready second album for release

The second album from Matt Skiba and the Sekrets, titled KUTS, is due for release June 2 (North America) and June 1 (Europe) on Superball Music.
Skiba’s first album with the Sekrets, 2012’s Babylon, received adulation from both fans and press. Now, Matt Skiba and his Sekrets (Hunter Burgan on bass, Jarrod Alexander drums) ready the release of KUTS. Skiba’s ongoing work in Alkaline Trio has been a well-documented punk rock success story, and the vocalist/guitarist has recently performed several gigs as a temporary member of punk/alt icons Blink-182.
Produced by Rob Schnapf (who has also worked with Elliott Smith, Beck and the Vines), Skiba says “I went in with really open and stark ideas, knowing that Rob would breathe life into the very vague ideas I had. I had written progressions and lyrics as well as some leads and key parts, but knew that what I was going to come out of that studio with would be completely different than what I walked in with.
The result is heard throughout the 10 songs comprising the brilliant KUTS. While the frontman will be touring with Alkaline Trio for the bulk of the spring and summer, he is committed to bringing the new material, and some favorites from Babylon, to life on the stage as his schedule permits.
