Skindred are a quintessentially British band, the only group to have successfully combined elements of punk, rock, metal, reggae and electronic music. Skindred rose like a phoenix from the ashes of seminal British ragga punks Dubwar at the turn of the millennium, fronted by iconic (and Elvis obsessed) frontman Benji Webbe. With him are bassist Dan Pugsley, guitarist Mikeydemus, and drummer Arya Goggin.
The band hit the ground running with their debut, Babylon, which included the breakthrough singles and consistent live favorites "Nobody," "Pressure" and "Selector." The band's sophomore album, 2005's Roots Rock Riot, was another perfect collection of hard-hitting ragga punk party anthems, exemplified in tracks such as "Trouble," "Rat Race," and "Rudeboy For Life."
Skindred truly shines on the live stage, and have won fans and wowed crowds at such events as Europe’s Sonisphere and the UK’s Download to Summer Sonic Japan.
