Skindred are set to release their new album Union Black today on 7pm/BMG Records. The release will be the Welsh ragga-metallers’ fourth studio album and includes latest single Warning, featuring a guest appearance from Jacoby Shaddix.

Last week also saw Skindred nominated for two awards in the Metal Hammer Golden Gods in the Best British Band and Best Live Band categories and the pre orders for Union Black have already put them at Number 1 in the Rock and Metal Album chart on

Arya Goggin from Skindred said: “Things are really happening for Skindred at the moment. I truly believe that this is the best alum we have made and we can’t wait to get out on the road and play some of these new songs.”

“We are also hugely excited to have Chiodos and Me vs Hero as our special guests on this tour as we all really wanted to bring a diverse line up to the UK. We pride ourselves on having an interesting mix of music on our tours and this is going to be awesome!”

The 11 date Union Black tour will kick off at the Concorde Brighton tomorrow and will showcase tracks from the much anticipated new album.
