Skies first emerged in the scene in the summer of 2008. From humble beginnings Skies fought their way to the top of the Kansas hardcore scene after releasing "The Age of Reason EP" in December of 2009. In June/July of 2010, Skies made themselves known beyond the boundaries of Central Kansas, touring the Midwest on the Tupac ShaTOUR. Ending their tour at Cornerstone Music Festival, the band drew consistent crowds of enthusiastic fans and began to draw a following nationwide. With enduring vigor, the band continued to tour and write music that is impacting and meaningful. In August of 2011, Skies released their recently recorded full length album "Bane and Rebirth". Establishing a name as a hardcore band from Central Kansas is not easy, but Skies continues to fight against the odds to find their place in Midwest Hardcore. After releasing their debut album, and touring across the United States, the band is regrouping with a new fire to perform music that impacts the underground. The mission of Skies is to empower young people in the underground scene with a positive attitude; to do away with apathy, negativity and oppression. The band hopes to promote a positive, drug free lifestyle that brings brotherhood and unity back into hardcore.
