Everyone’s favourite ragga punk heroes Skindred are pleased to announce the title of their highly anticipated new album. ‘Union Black’, Skindred’s 4th album is currently being recorded at Brit Row Studios with producer James Loughrey (So Solid Crew, Page & Plant)

Enigmatic front-man Benji Webbe has this to say about the new record:

“This is the first album we have written and recorded in the UK, it's a big departure from our usual sunny California or Florida surroundings – its bloody freezing! The album will be darker and heavier than any of our previous recordings and I've not been this excited whilst writing since I was a kid! ‘Union Black’ is bringing the darker side of the Dred out for sure!”

Skindred will also perform their first shows of 2011 as the special guest on the SOLD OUT Rob Zombie UK tour in February. These dates are Rob Zombie’s first in the UK after a 12 year hiatus and with Skindred and Revoker in tow – how can they be anything but incredible!
