MATT SKIBA AND THE SEKRETS’ New Album ‘Babylon’ is Available Today

By on May 9, 2012

“…a textured record that combines Skiba’s trademark dark-tinged punk sensibilities with an electronic edge inspired by ’80s new wave.”
– Alternative Press Magazine (4/5)

“Babylon is a thrill and delight to absorb and a testament to Skiba’s talents.”

– (9/10)

“Babylon is straight out of Skiba’s most powerful playbook, its fast, punk driven, and pays attention to arrangements with electronics.”


“This may sound like an odd comparison but I feel like what Matt Skiba did with Babylon is what JJ Abrams did with Star Trek. Skiba delves into familiar places, but makes it new and fresh. It will surely please new fans as well as die-hard Alkaline Trio fanatics.”

After a much anticipated wait, Babylon, the debut album from MATT SKIBA AND THE SEKRETS, is finally available.  Babylon is currently #6 on the iTunes Alternative Charts and can be found streaming in its entirety on, here.  Also check out a video interview and live acoustic performance of “Voices” at The Insider here, and a recent article that did here.  MATT SKIBA AND THE SEKRETS also recently announced that they will be heading out on their first ever tour this June.  A full list of dates are below.
