"Sleepwalkers", the new video from San Francisco Bay Area power-thrashers SKINNER, can be seen below. The clip was directed by Mike Sloat (TESTAMENT, MACHINE HEAD) and depicts a struggle between two consciences. The first is a dream world where the individual sleepwalks through life doing as they are told completely unaware of the reality around them. The second is the horrible reality that not everything is as it seems and life can be hard and scary. The individual eventually is able to break free of the mold and think for himself.
"Sleepwalkers" is the title track of SKINNER's upcoming full-length effort, which will be released on May 6 via Dead Inside Records. The CD was engineered by Steve Pelletier at Hellfire Studios in San Jose, California and mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Recording NC. The cover artwork was created by Jobert Mello of Sledgehammer Graphix (PRIMAL FEAR, SABATON, SHADOWSIDE).

SKINNER was formed out of the ashes of the now-defunct power/thrash band IMAGIKA.
IMAGIKA released seven albums and toured extensively before calling it a day in 2010.
Taking its name from its lead vocalist; SKINNER combines both the European power metal sound with the high-energy thrash attack of the San Francisco Bay Area.
