SK8 UNLEASHES DEBUT PROJECT “LAST DAY ON EARTH”
EP FEATURES GOOD CHARLOTTE, SUM41, WIZ KHALIFA, AND MORE
Emerging ART@WAR/Taylor Gang rising artist SK8 has released his debut project, Last Day on Earth, marking his first body of work as an alternative, punk artist. LISTEN HERE.
Collaborators on the 9 track EP include multiplatinum, GRAMMY-nominated rap icon Wiz Khalifa, Good Charlotte, Machine Gun Kelly drummer Rook, EDM duo DVBBS, musician and Atlantic Records label mate Sueco, Sum41, Sommer Ray, Scarlett and more.
Sk8’s debut EP drums up themes of rebellion, broken relationships, teenage nostalgia, and the unending need to rage against systems built to curtail his personal light.
“I wanted my debut project to blend genres and be cohesive for all artists involved. Last Day on Earth really nails that concept and grasps my personal identity.”
Last Day on Earth includes previously released tracks “Girl Next Door (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & DVBBS)” with 9.4M streams globally to date, “Heaven Sent,” “F*ck Society (feat. Sueco),” “Girl Next Door (Feat. Wiz Khalifa & DVBBS)” and “Pages (Feat. Rook).”
Producers of the project include Baze (Machine Gun Kelly), Colin Brittain (Sueco) Breakfast N Vegas (Rihanna), Stixx (Justin Bieber), Cypress Moreno (Shoreline Mafia, Drakeo, Blxst), Good Charlotte, Sueco, and Rook (MGK Drummer).
Deemed an “artist you need to hear” by Alternative Press, SK8 kicked off his musical transition from hip-hop in 2021 with “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh),” his first foray into the alternative space.
American Songwriter praised “Famous,” noting that, “SK8 effortlessly blends hip-hop and punk into some newly evolved sound,” and Hot New Hip Hop hailed the song as a, “genre-melting experience.”

The 27-year-old moved to Los Angeles from Omaha, Nebraska and linked with the venerable Taylor Gang, first breaking into the mainstream with his gold-certified single, “Like That,” with Jack & Jack and opening for revered rap icons like Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz and Rae Sremmurd. SK8 began building a dedicated fanbase of dreamers who related to his message of seizing every moment long before his eventual move to LA. Shortly after founding his own imprint, Alignment, and formally signing a joint venture with Atlantic Records via James McMillan’s ART@WAR, SK8 released his major label debut EP, sk8sounds, which was buttressed by the standout singles “Omme(Feat. Wiz Khalifa),” “XXX” and “Mood (Feat. YK Osiris).” Over a year later, SK8 has turned a new page in his career with his first single of 2021, “Famous (Feat. Tyla Yaweh),” and its associated forthcoming project which finds the rising singer seamlessly blending punk/rock instrumentation with his hip-hop origins, the latest but not last development in SK8’s rapidly evolving artistry. Last Day on Earth marks the rising singer’s first body of work as an alternative/punk artist.
