Based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Skeleton Crowd is an alternative rock band founded in 2014 by Faris Alsobyani and Abdulmalik Zubailah. They tell stories of compromise and vulnerability in their music, with the intention of breaking the boundaries of genres.
“Bedroom-based rock band, because we’ll never play live” was the initial biography for the band’s social pages when they first started, but ever since then, they have come a long way, trying to implement a unique alternative sound in a region where alternative and rock music is scarce in general.
With their debut single “Masquerading Crowd,” which was finished almost in its entirety in one day, Skeleton Crowd have sought to establish themselves as a new wave of alternative music in the region.
With 6 singles in their catalogue, including songs like “Centerpiece” and “Molly Crapton,” Skeleton Crowd are gearing up for a new single, an album release and proper plans for live shows. Skeleton Crowd are here to make a statement with their music and sound.
