Skindred announce massive UK winter tour

Skindred have announced a 25-date UK tour in support of this year’s Big Tings album.

The ragga-rock pioneers start their tour, titled That’s My Jam after their latest single, in Coventry on October 31 and wrap it up nearly two months later in Leicester on December 22.

Says drummer Arya Goggin: “Whenever we announce a UK tour we get posts from fans saying why are you not playing here, so we thought in acknowledgement of this we would try and play everywhere. Hopefully we will be able to add some Irish shows to the calendar too just to complete the run.

“It’s not just about playing in the six or seven biggest cities, it is about getting out there and playing some of the smaller towns which are often starved of shows and often these make for some of the best shows we have played.”

Tickets for the UK tour go on sale on at 10am on Friday August 31.

Skindred released their seventh album, Big Tings, earlier this year via Napalm Records. It reached the UK Top 30.

The first single from the album, Machine, featured Reef frontman Gary Stringer and former Motörhead guitarist Phil Campbell.
