Welsh "ragga metal" band SKINDRED has released a new lyric video for fan-favorite track "Loud And Clear", taken from its U.K. Top 40 hit album "Big Tings" (Napalm Records). The release comes ahead of the band's upcoming tour supporting DISTURBED and heralds exciting times for SKINDRED.
"We are currently gearing up for a very heavy year of extensive touring and are also hoping to work on writing new material in the gaps," says drummer Arya Goggin, "The track 'Loud And Clear' from 'Big Tings' was a very popular choice with our fans, so we have decided to put it out to coincide with our tour with DISTURBED.
"We hit the road with DISTURBED in April, with shows throughout Europe and the U.K., then we are literally straight into festival season; finally to round off the year we are taking the 'That's My Jam' tour to Europe (with BLOOD COMMAND as our special guest), which finishes in late December. So, in short, it's going to be a roller coaster of a year!"
"Loud And Clear" gets a gritty yet dreamy, uber-colorful urban-themed video, with neon-style lyrics on top of mesmeric clips of a spraycan-wielding graffiti painter. This is mixed with the usual energetic live footage of SKINDRED doing what they do best, killing it live with Newport Helicopters, energy, style and appeal.
SKINDRED's tour as DISTURBED's special guest runs from April 18 to May 15 and covers the nations of Europe, reaching U.K. shores on May 11, playing dates at London, Glasgow and Manchester. Many dates are already sold out.
The band's headline "That's My Jam" European tour (with special guests BLOOD COMMAND) likewise covers many nations on the continent and runs from November 29 to December 19.
