09th January 2009 - Skunk Anansie Reform?!?!

Dear all,
It has been five and a half years since this website has been last updated!
It may appear that Skunk Anansie has reformed! Evidence:

The Sun's Showbiz Bizarre Gossip Page
Skunk Anansie Myspace Page (set-up by Ace apparently)
Skin's Myspace page " SKUNK ANANSIE GIGS also coming soon..."
Skin's V2 Myspace Page
Skin's official forum
Interview with Mark Richardson for Drummer Magazine

It appears they are reuniting for a greatest hits tour which may perhaps coincide with the release of a greatest hits album. It has also been confirmed that new songs are being written. However, the format by which these songs will be released (if at all) is unconfirmed.
I do not think I will have the time to update this website in a timely or informative manner. That is why I will now say thank you for reading this website and it has been a pleasure making it! Bye!
