SKINDRED To Release 'Big Tings' Album In April

Welsh "ragga metal" and SKINDRED will release its new album, "Big Tings", on April 27 via Napalm Records. A single, "Machine", will precede the full-length effort, featuring vocals by REEF frontman Gary Stringer and guitar by Phil Campbell of MOTÖRHEAD. The track was previously used as both the intro and outro theme to AC/DC frontman Brian Johnson's TV show "Cars That Rock".

"The album's sounding really big," SKINDRED drummer Arya Goggin told Metal Hammer magazine. "With that name, you have got to deliver big songs. There will be lots of twists and turns — nothing's off limits."

SKINDRED vocalist Benji Webbe added: "We are totally revved up about our new single, 'Machine', and are busy getting wheels into motion and gearing up ahead of our U.K. tour in what is looking like being a turbo-charged bumper year."

SKINDRED will embark on a full U.K. tour in April with special guests CKY.

Benji revealed last year that he was working Campbell on the MOTÖRHEAD guitarist's upcoming solo album.

"When I got to meet Phil Campbell, he was sober, but I've heard some amazing stories about his adventures," Benji told Express & Star.

"He sent me the instrumental and I could feel its energy. So I asked the gods of rock and they send the words down to me.

"It's a really heartfelt song.

"I was touched, because Phil had been left alone without Lemmy.

"He listened to it afterwards and said it had touched him — and really, that's what it's all about."
