Local Band Dirty Skirty Releases Second Album

After a four-year hiatus, the band Dirty Skirty is back in action and better than ever with its second album, Rebel. The group’s debut album Long Live Rock ’N’ Roll was released in 2010 and was supposed to be the band’s curtain call. However, after a few rock sites heard about the band from underground fans around the globe, sales boomed.

With no label, marketing or tour to support their first album, Dirty Skirty still sold more than 2,000 physical units and had more than 25,000 digital downloads. It was also voted No. 6 rock album of the year by www.sleazeroxx.com.

With Rebel, the men bring the kind of steady strut you would expect from Aerosmith or the Stones. Featuring rock anthems “Devil Dancer” and “My Way or the Highway,” the record stands up to what the big national acts are putting out, with 11 punchy tracks of sweaty rock ’n’ roll. On Sunday, April 27, the band will hold an album release party at Propaganda in Lake Worth. Doors open at 5 p.m. with the show ending at 8 p.m.

Singer Luke Stephens graduated from Wellington High School in 2000 before attending Ohio State University and Florida State University. By day, he teaches tennis. He is also the group’s predominate songwriter.
