Skindred Announce UK Tour

British Ragga Metallers Skindred launch their campaign for their much anticipated new album “Kill the Power” on DoubleCross Records with the announcement of a full UK Tour with Special U.S. Guests Chicago’s SOil & L.A.s Viza.

Skindreds drummer Arya Goggin says “We always pride ourselves on having great guests on our tours and we are really excited to have SOiL as our main special guests on our Kill the Power UK Tour especially with Ryan back in the lineup. They are great friends and absolutely slay it live so we can’t wait to party with them. We are also extremely pleased to have LA band Viza also join the tour and bring some of their unique energetic gypsy punk metal madness to the proceedings. Bring it on!”

Chicago rockers SOils bassist Tim King said upon announcement of the tour – “We are both excited and scared to tour the UK with Skindred: excited because Skindred are great friends of ours and it’s been long overdue to tour together again, scared because Skindred are great friends of ours and we will definitely be in danger of having too much fun and getting in too much trouble together! Nobody gets out alive!!!!!”

With over 500,000 albums sold, fourpiece Skindred are one of the UK’s best live bands – regularly headlining festival stages from Bogota to Bosnia and beyond… This year the band will play to audiences of over 2 million. They are also set to make their Reading/Leeds festival debut on the mainstage in August 2013 with their unique blend of rock, metal, reggae, roots and dub.
