Newport’s own ragga rock legends Skindred are proud to announce a first teaser for the track ‘Machine’ ahead of their forthcoming UK ‘Start the Machine Tour’.
‘Machine’ will be the first single from the band’s upcoming album titled Big Tings due out on April 27th 2018 via Napalm Records.
The track has already been used as both the intro and outro theme to none other than AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson’s TV show ‘Cars That Rock’ Worldwide and features Reef frontman Gary Stringer lining up alongside the band’s own Benji Webbe on co-vocals … and if that is not enough the single also features Motorhead/Bastard Sons guitarist Phil Campbell taking the honours on the guitar solo too. Whats not to like? If you want a taster of the track, here is a video teaser (below):
Skindred, along with producer James Loughrey and engineer Lee Slater, are currently putting the finishing touches to what will be the bands seventh studio album and they could not be more excited about it.
Guitarist Mikey Demus had this to say:
“The name hopefully says it all, you can expect some seriously Big Tings from Skindred on our next record. We’ve thrown away the rulebook and pushed ourselves harder than ever to create the biggest, baddest, and most banging songs we could muster. We can’t wait to start unleashing this new stuff on the world, so prepare yourselves for some Big Tings!”
