Skindred Announce New Album Title

Skindred have announced the title of their forthcoming album will be Union Black.

The album is due for release in May next year.

Benji Webbe:

“This is the first album we have written and recorded in the UK, it’s a big departure from our usual sunny California or Florida surroundings ­ its bloody freezing! The album will be darker and heavier than any of our previous recordings and I’ve not been this excited whilst writing since I was a kid! “Union Black” is bringing the darker side of the Dred out for sure!!!!!”
