MUSIC NEWS: Skindred Announce Eighth Studio Album & Release Video For New Single ‘Gimme That Boom’
Skindred have announced their eighth studio album Smile, due for release on 4th August 2023 via Earache Records. The album will celebrate the band’s 25th anniversary.
In light of the announcement, the band have released a video for their new single Gimme That Boom.
“I was out shopping one day and I could hear someone building up asking me for a picture,” says frontman Benji Webbe. “The person didn’t care who I was with or what I was doing – they just wanted their picture. In this day and age, people want you and they expect to get you on tap, constantly giving you that ‘boom’ so they can get their Instagram Likes up. It’s important to remember that people can’t give you that ‘boom’ all the time. People think because they follow you on social media, they own you.”
Smile is available to pre-order HERE.
