Won't you join them...?

The nights are drawing in, the temperature is dropping, and shops - little by little - are ushering their festive wares on to the shelves.

Yep, Christmas is calling... so won't you pick up? Skinny Lister are already feeling the Christmas buzz, and their new single harks back to Advent classics of old.

'Christmas Calls' is a festive extravaganza, and the video is shot on 1970’s Super 8 film - filmed on tour with Dropkick Murphys, it's a Christmas postcard in itself.

Daniel Heptinstall says: "I wrote this song in the lead up to last Christmas so I was in full festive spirit! I didn't actually make a conscious decision to write a Christmas song, it wasn't contrived in any way, it just arrived when I picked up the guitar one day."

"I am a big fan of a good Christmas track and that warm nostalgic feeling they can evoke. I’ve always had soft spot for a bit of Chris Rea when driving up North to see the family for Christmas, or the festive rush of nostalgia I get from those opening bars of The Pogues' 'Fairytale of New York'. I'm more than happy to throw a Skinny Lister one into the mix."
