The Skastitutes have been jamming around the University of Maine for the past three years. The band has won UMaine's Got Talent and the Sophomore Owls' Battle of the Bands, has opened for major acts at Sig Ep's Rock Against Rape and has become a regular attraction in many local venues. Following the release of the bands's first EP, "Someday", the band has grown its online following beyond Maine, and has been featured in several blogs and news articles. Currently, the band is booking performances in the Orono area and working on finishing our first album.
