Skindred have released a video showing them in the studio recording their new album Big Tings.

It’s set to arrive on April 27 via Napalm Records and will be preceded by their new track Machine, which can be heard in the new clip.

The single will launch before their Start The Machine UK tour gets under way on April 19 in Norwich.

Machine features guest vocals from Reef frontman Gary Stringer and a solo from former Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell.

Skindred guitarist Mikey Demus says: “The name hopefully says it all – you can expect some seriously Big Tings from Skindred on our next record.

“We’ve thrown away the rulebook and pushed ourselves harder than ever to create the biggest, baddest, and most banging songs we could muster.

“We can’t wait to start unleashing this new stuff on the world, so prepare yourselves for some Big Tings!”

In addition, the band have revealed the Big Tings cover art which can be found below, along with a list of their upcoming UK tour dates.
