The Skitzofrantiks: Eclectic. Discordant. Melodious. Crass. Inspired by, indie, jazz, metal, gypsy and folk music. Established in 2009, The Skitzofrantiks started out as a folk rock duo but quickly transformed into a fast moving highly energetic three piece band. The band is spearheaded by Scottish front man Liam O’Connell, with all three band members having roles in the songwriting process.

They started out writing slightly quirky folk rock but when Kiwi drummer and producer Tahne Brown came on board and splashed his influence. The music soon transformed into a “bigger, louder experience” full of well thought out time and mood changes that can slip by the listener with surprising ease. With the addition of “the doctor of split minds”, Ben Armour (UK) the fullness and body lacking was then filled The influence of Jeff Buckley, Queens of the Stone Age, The Blonde Redheads and Radiohead (to name a few), combined with the three different styles and forces of the band has led The Skitzofrantiks to produce a solid set of progressive and unconventional tracks on their debut self titled EP.

“We like the idea of giving the listener something they expect to hear and then turn it into something they really don’t expect to hear,” says front man Liam O’Connell. “We see our music as being ‘schizophrenically’ inspired. It’s always fast changing, it goes from heavy to jazzy occasionally delving into psychedelic live electronica. It’s all quite frantic and that’s what makes our music what it is.”

The Skitzofrantiks have been in the studio again with the talented producer and Guitarist “Charlie Chainsaw” to record their up and coming single "Look Between the Flames" which they are launching on this tour
