Reggae-rock legends Skindred are proud to announce the release of new album Big Tings (pre-orders here), due out on April 27th on Napalm Records, ahead of their forthcoming UK Start the Machine Tour.


Skindred are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to what will be their seventh album and could not be more excited.

The album’s first single Machine has already been used as both the intro and outro theme to AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson’s TV show Cars that Rock worldwide and features Reef frontman Gary Stringer lining up alongside the bands own Benji Webbe on co-vocals. If that’s not enough, the single also features Motorhead/Bastard Sons guitarist Phil Campbell taking the honours on the guitar solo.

We are totally revved up about our new single Machine and are busy getting wheels into motion and gearing up ahead of our UK tour and what is looking like being a turbo-charged bumper year. TurboDred charged, big tings ah gworn this year,” says Skindred frontman Benji Webbe.
