SKINDRED Announces "That's My Jam" US Tour!
Ragga Punks Skindred have announced their return to North America in support of their new album "Big Tings", which features the active rock radio smash 'That's My Jam'- #22 on the charts this week. The tour kicks off September 26th in Jacksonville, FL and runs through October 12th in Tempe, AZ. A complete list of dates can be found below. Support on the tour will come from Sumo Cyco and Raven Black.
The band are eagerly anticipating their return:
"We are blown away by the success 'That's My Jam' is currently having in America. It's heartwarming that our once second home is once again opening its arms to Skindred. This North American tour is so exciting for us, we can't wait to spread "Big Tings" across the land and so say all of us, Let's Dred into America!"
Radio stations across the country have been spinning the single 'That's My Jam' nonstop:
"'That's My Jam'could be the song of the summer- it's just so fun to hear on the radio."
-Bob Edwards KQRC-
"I seriously love this, it's MY Jam this summer and it's my favorite video."
-Valorie Knight KQRA-
"WJJO and Skindred have a 15 year relationship and this song is going to make it stronger."
-Tony Labrie WWBN-
"At a time when bands are making cookie-cutter songs, Skindred's style is unique and cuts through. Hands down the most entertaining live band in music."
-Ross Mahoney KXTE-
The overwhelming response doesn't stop there as "Big Tings" has garnered some of the band's best reviews to date:
"Expect some big riffs and even bigger hooks."
"Big Tings is big: it is a massive sound, a bold statement from these seasoned musical veterans."
"(It) is impossible not to get stuck in your head."
"Combined with some of the most energetic live shows this side of Airbourne, Skindredseem set to conquer the world."
"Big Tings ... is straight up fiyah!"
-Skulls n Bones-
"Welsh Raggar-Metallers return with searing seventh album." (4/5)
"Big Tings" 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 rock, metal and punk material rubs shoulders with smooth melodies - and of course Skindred wouldn`t leave us on the dance floor without a hefty helping of their trademark Godzilla-huge choruses. Big songs, big sound, "Big Tings"!
