Skindred, who we supported in 2012 for SXSW, have just announced signing a new worldwide record deal with Cooking Vinyl imprint DoubleCross Records, which was a direct result of their performances in Austin.
Described by Radio 1’s Daniel P Carter as “one of the best live acts Britain has ever produced”, Skindred are a genuine worldwide phenomenon, uniquely blending elements of punk, rock, metal, reggae and electronic music. In 2011 they won Kerrang’s much-respected Devotion award, while last year the band picked up Metal Hammer’s coveted Golden God for Best Live Act.
Skindred’s frontman, Benjie Webbe: ” We are more than buzzed to be joining forces with Cooking Vinyl to releasing our 5th full length studio album! This a worldwide deal so we are looking forward to getting the record out everywhere and to be touring in support of it. Cooking Vinyl have an amazing roster and we are very proud to be a part of it. Looking to the future and the big tings what ah come!!!! “
