DETROIT (June 9, 2014) – Skeleton Crew is set to enter the recording studio today in what the band calls their “Bey-lated thank you” to Beyonce for including the band in her “***FLAWLESS” video. “We thought simply sending flowers wasn’t enough,” said Scott Christy, Skeleton Crew guitarist and founding member. “So we’ve been holed up working hard on a song that might adequately thank her in addition to lending support to her feminist initiative.”
The band will be recording with Emmy-Award winning producer, Kevin Sharpe, at Detroit’s Metro 37 Recording Studios, over two days. The song, which the band remains mum as to whether it is an original or a cover, is expected to drop as a digital only, free download release sometime near the end of June, early July. A video to accompany the song is also in the works.
Since its release on Friday, December 13, 2013, The “***FLAWLESS” video has showered worldwide media attention on Skeleton Crew. The timing of her release is almost twenty years to-the-date when Skeleton Crew faced a 12-year-old Beyonce and her then group, Girls Tyme on the American Idol of its time TV show: Star Search. Skeleton Crew defeated Girls Tyme, but went on to lose in the semi-finals. The Girls Tyme Star Search loss became “a defining moment of [her] childhood,” according to Beyonce.
“I can only hope that more people get exposed to our music as a result,” said William Pilipchuk, lead singer and cofounder of Skeleton Crew. “I’ve always said that Skeleton Crew will forever remain a ‘footnote’ in the career of Beyonce. Now, in light of all the newfound attention Beyonce inadvertently bestowed upon the band, it appears that ‘footprint’ may just get a little bigger.”
