Skeletons With Flesh On Them are a four-piece indie-rock group from Seattle, WA consisting of Scott Roots (vocals, guitar), Neal Flaherty (guitar), Lucas Smith (bass), and Devon Stewart (drums, backing vocals). Skeletons formed in late 2005 when Scott and Neal met through a mutual friend. Lucas and Devon joined shortly thereafter following a posting in The Stranger. They have self-released 2 albums, "The Fish Don't Mind EP" (2007) and "All the Other Animals" (2009).

Press for The Fish Don't Mind EP(2007)

"While listening to their EP The Fish Don't Mind I was reminded of the following bands: Cherry Peel era Of Montreal, old Piebald (if Travis could sing in key), the theme song from Cheers, Pinkerton era Weezer, and Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. I was overjoyed to hear a band that was using my favorite aspects of jangly 90s indie pop rock, and using them well without feeling dated. Skeletons do a great job keeping their pop catchy and warmhearted without being cheesy, which is no easy task."
Jeff Kirby, The Stranger

"Skeletons with Flesh on Them (really, who isn't?) are part of the thriving Seattle pop scene and then really know how to write a power pop song. Their EP, The Fish Don't Mind (self-released, 7.5/11) is ridiculously catchy, especially songs like "Houseguest," a song that attacks you like a lost Ted Leo track or "Neon Lights of Reno," the most developed and complex song on the disc."
Erik Gonzalez, Three Imaginary Girls

"Seattle's Skeletons with Flesh on Them are way too damn good not to be sitting with a substantial record contract supporting them...Skeletons strike you as a quirky melodic indie rock band that clearly has that 'local band sound', but are also breaking out of that mold. Their one-sheet comparison to Pavement is dead on for the quirky indie moments, but Scott Roots' vocals are too goofy/nerdy (in a good way) leading the Skeletons' melodic charge to pin as a knock off."

"It opens with the bouncy and fun "Bein' In Love", which grabbed my attention rather quickly, and then the super-poppy "Houseguests" made it stick. Their sound (especially those two songs and the album's epic closer, "Neon Lights Of Reno") kinda reminds me of David And The Citizens crossed with the Decemberists; there's a lot going on in these songs..."
Chris McFarlane, Indie Pages

"...some of the sunniest, harmony-laced, guitar-driven pop this side of the Cascades. Their latest EP, The Fish Don't Mind, is chock-full of hooks and memorable lines about bein' in love."
Megan Seling, The Stranger

"...Skeletons with Flesh on Them stick to the perfect mixture of guitar driven indie rock and pop melodies. The Fish Don't Mind is the first real surprise that I've heard in 2008â¦If you like indie rock with some pop, then you should definitely investigate Skeletons with Flesh on Them."
Michael Phillips, scenepointblank

"Don't worry - Seattle quartet Skeletons with Flesh on Them don't sound anything like their name might imply. (No death metal shred-fests about zombies, that is.) Rather, they play jangly, frenetic rock - think a more-melodic Pavement."
Michael Connelly, Seattle Sound

"This Seattle based band cranks out some sorta eccentric pop-rock. Think jangly guitarâ¦early 90s rockâ¦A great little find for fans of all types of pop-rock as long as you were a fan of Weezer or a peer at one point or another."
