Oklahoma's Skytown Head Back Into The Studio & Planning Festival Schedule for 2017

By: Jura Daubenspeck

After a wild summer of shows, festivals, and a debut music video release, acoustic rock group Skytown is set to take on 2017 with an arsenal of soon-to-be-recorded music, tour stops in new cities, and a booked year of music festivals.



Since their inception in 2012, Skytown has established themselves as one of the most unique sounding bands today. The hard-hitting, guitar-driven rock group has deep roots in their hometown of Tulsa, OK, where they consistently yield hundreds of passionate fans to their shows every week at venues like The Vanguard, and The Shrine. In addition, Skytown are no strangers to the wonderful world of music festivals. They have performed at Wakarusa, Backwoods Music Festival, Rocklahoma, East Meets West Battle of the Bands, and the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Their most recent festi performances were at Twister Fest, KATTFEST, and Metro Music Festival. With 2017 on the horizon, festival dates for the coming year are being revealed, and the mad dash for band submission applications begins. So keep your eyes peeled because there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing Skytown at some of your favorite small and large-scale jamborees.

Skytown’s latest release of their “Through Circles” music video, (off of Outshine the Sun) received incredibly positive feedback from fans and new listeners alike. Filmed in their hometown with the help of BLDGBLKS Music Company, Skytown showed the dark and cryptically artistic side to their music with the video. Lucky for fans, the band has about thirteen songs they hope to record in the coming months, and are sure to create another visual piece from one of their new tracks. It’s too soon to tell what vibe they’ll introduce us to next, but if it’s anything like what they’ve been playing lately, it will be damn good rock music with substance. Skytown’s consistently successful releases, diehard fans, and constant desire to create more music make them a band you should definitely check out if you haven’t already.

Stay in touch with Skytown’s announcements and releases on their Facebook and website. And if you’re in the Tulsa area, catch them at their next show at Cain’s Ballroom on November 19th with The Young Vines, Riot Waves, The Capital Whys, and NeoRomantics.
