A four-piece from Tenbury Wells who play indie, rock, and punk covers, but they're also starting to work on their own original material.
Skynt formed in the autumn of 2004 when Grant Harris (vocals) quit long time band Deep Elem and joined forces with bass player Shaun O'Toole (Agent Orange, Idletime) to begin searching for players to complete the line-up.
They quickly recruited guitarist Richard Tompkins (Idletime) and drummer Jack Houson (Fiction) who also brought along band mate and lead guitarist Steve Roberts (Fiction).
With the line-up in place, Skynt played their first on 11 December 2004 at a friend's wedding, followed by a series of sweaty high-energy local performances.
In February Jack and Steve decided to split and reform Fiction with Old band mate Chris 'Twig' Davis (Fiction, Idletime) handling the bass duties.
After auditioning several people, drummer Mike McBride (Midlife Toad) was recruited and a new set was produced.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session, every week from 7pm on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
