Crossfaith and Benji Webbe in Wildfire video

Crossfaith have released a video for their track Wildfire – featuring Skindred frontman Benji Webbe.

The song is taken from last year’s album Xeno and the promo features live footage captured with guest Webbe onstage alongside the Japanese electro-metal outfit on their 2015 joint tour.

Crossfaith mainman Kenta Koie says: “Wildfire is the sound of Crossfaith live shows. It’s crazy, heavy and a real party.

“And this collaboration with the legend Benji from our boys Skindred is a proper banger that we just love to play. So if you want the best night of your life, come see us on the Xeno world tour soon in the UK and Europe.”

Crossfaith tour Europe from this month, with The Qemists onboard as support for some UK dates.

Webbe was in Japan with Skindred at the weekend for a show in Koto. The singer is recovering after an incident in his hometown on Newport which left him needing 24 stitches in his neck and throat. Two women were arrested in connected with the alleged attack.
