HI-JINX folk rockers The Revellers will launch their second album later this year with their biggest headline show yet at Lerwick’s Clickimin Leisure Complex.

Fans will be given the chance to buy the septet’s new studio effort Skeletons for the first time at the gig, which is being held on 24 September.

Three “much-loved” local acts will warm up the show, with The Revellers promising a “spree not to be missed”.

Skeletons acts as the follow-up to the band’s 2013 debut Renegades.

The 12 track album was recorded at Mareel in Lerwick with sound engineers Tim Matthew and Jonathan Ritch.

The record’s creative process saw each member of the group contribute something unique.

“Every band member has taken the lead on at least one track on Skeletons,” bassist Adam Priest said.

“In addition, the collaborations on the album, between band members and from special guests have been outstanding.

“I think this is what makes Skeletons something that is greater than the sum of its individual parts, especially Lewie [Peterson]’s ground-breaking thrash metal tenor banjo”.

The Revellers will prepare for the Lerwick show with performances at Denmark’s Skagen Festival between 30 June and 3 July.

Tickets for The Revellers’ Clickimin album launch will go on sale via Shetland Box Office on 27 May priced at £15.
