Matt Skiba announces new solo album with the Sekrets, out in June

Could Matt Skiba be any busier? First, the dude joins Blink-182 in replacement of Tom DeLonge. That’s kind of a full-time gig right there. Plus his main band, Alkaline Trio, are still very much active and have a huge touring schedule coming up. Now, he’s announced the details of his second solo album under the moniker Matt Skiba And The Sekrets, called Kuts. The Rob Schnapf-produced album will come out June 2 on Superball Music. Skiba comments on the album:

“The writing style and entire approach to this new one was a stronger desire to do something fairly different from my other band. We used sounds hugely influenced by early David Bowie stuff and took more chances. I knew that the playing of Hunter and Jarrod would bring entirely new elements to the songs that would help shape them in a huge way and influence ideas that I would never have thought of on my own. They did great stuff for the last record but had even more freedom on this one. It really shaped the way this record sounds.”
