Skindred has done it again! After blowing away the audience at Takedown Festival’s main stage, the band released their latest single ‘If I Could’ from their upcoming album, Smile. The track showcases a different side of the album, with a singalong chorus that delivers stadium rock vibes. The upcoming Skindred album, Smile, is shaping up to be possibly their best album yet!
Inspired by the lockdown and the impact it had on the world, Skindred’s frontman Benji recalls how much he hated 2020. However, he remains optimistic about 2023, as the band has released new music and is set to drop a few more monsters from their album, Smile. With the KISS tour and their headline tour supporting the new album, Benji believes that 2023 is a very exciting time to be in Skindred.
‘If I Could’ follows the recent releases of ‘Gimme That Boom’ and ‘Set Fazers’ – dancefloor bangers that showcase Skindred’s trademark ragga-metal to maximum effect.
Skindred’s brand new album, Smile, channels a range of styles from reggae to metal, rock to pop, dub to electro. The album creates the most mind-expanding and potent collection of songs the band has ever delivered, designed to melt stereos worldwide. Fans can now pre-order the album.
As one of the most entertaining bands globally, it’s no surprise that they have recently been nominated for Best UK Live Act at the Heavy Music Awards on May 26th. The band will also be supporting rock legends KISS on their farewell UK dates this summer.
Get ready for Skindred’s upcoming album, Smile, and their next set of monster tracks. 2023 is an exciting time for Skindred, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for their future!
