SKINDRED-Big Tings/Limited Edition Digipack CD
Start your engines, ladies and gentlemen: nothing`s off limits for these Welsh ragga rock / metal pioneers Skindred and their seventh album Big tings! Roaring and pounding, the follow-up to 2015`s Volume is a magnificent beast churning out heavy, distortion-laden riff punches melting into vocalist Benji Webbe`s frenzied rapping. Explosive metal and punk material rubs shoulders with smooth melodies – and of course Skindred wouldn`t leave us on the dancefloor without a hefty helping of their trademark Godzilla-esquely huge choruses. Big songs, big sound!
Releases April 27TH 2019 via Napalm Records
Ragga Metallers SKINDRED release a new lyric video for fan-favourite track “Loud and Clear”, taken from their UK Top 40 hit album Big Tings on Napalm Records. The release comes ahead of the band’s upcoming tour, supporting US Rock legends Disturbed, and heralds exciting times for SKINDRED.
“We are currently gearing up for a very heavy year of extensive touring and are also hoping to work on writing new material in the gaps,” says SKINDRED drummer Arya Goggin, “The track ‘Loud and Clear’ from Big Tings was a very popular choice with our fans, so we have decided to put it out to coincide with our tour with Disturbed.”
“We hit the road with Disturbed in April, with shows throughout Europe and the UK, then we are literally straight into festival season; finally to round off the year we are taking the ‘That’s My Jam’ Tour to Europe (with Blood Command as our special guest), which finishes in late December. So, in short, it’s going to be a rollercoaster of a year!”
“Loud and Clear” gets a gritty yet dreamy, uber-colourful urban-themed video, with neon-style lyrics on top of mesmeric clips of a spraycan-wielding graffiti painter. This is mixed with the usual energetic live footage of SKINDRED doing what they do best, killing it live with Newport Helicopters, energy, style and appeal.
