In 2012, word of their legendary live shows reached Ruf Records president Thomas Ruf, and Skinny Molly immediately embarked on recording their first CD for the label, the critics' favorite "Haywire Riot." "Haywire Riot" bordered on a southern gothic gumbo sound, while retaining Estes' dark lyrics about lost love, redemption and the freedom of life on the road.
Amicably parting with Ruf in 2014, the band set out to record their just-released blast of "Southern Rawk" as Estes calls it, the aptly titled "Here For A Good Time" is collection of songs that the band thinks is their best yet. "Here For A Good Time" is sure to please fans of a number of genres; Southern Rock, Rock, Country, Blues, and Americana fans will all find more than a little something to love about this CD. Skinny Molly has built an extremely loyal international following the old fashioned way; playing an energetic live set with brick and mortar solid songs anywhere in the world that will have them: Euro rock festivals, Stateside bike rallies, the world's largest fishing tournament in Mexico, to any honky-tonk in any given place on the globe, their battle cry is unwavering; "Never let a single fan go home disappointed" a vision that quite of few bands have not only lost sight of, but never had to begin with.
