Skindred Announce 28 support bands for Winter tour

Skindred Announce 28 support bands for upcoming UK Winter Tour as band looks to support new and emerging talent.

Skindred are pleased to announce 28 support acts for their already extended UK Winter tour as they look to support local venues and new and emerging talent.

Skindred Drummer Arya Goggin said “It is  hugely important to us as a band to support new and emerging bands and talent across the Country. This is something we always try and do. This tour was already about playing a more extensive run of shows than we usually do,  and trying to play in towns that do not get as many bigger bands playing in them. Supporting local venues is hugely important to us as they need to be kept alive .To us this also goes hand in hand with us supporting new and emerging talent in these towns wherever possible. It’s a huge part of our ethos as a band, so we could not be more excited to be taking out some amazing up and coming bands on this run, as well as having a brilliant selection of acts performing with us locally on these shows

We have mixed it up a lot and between ourselves, have taken a lot of time to source a great selection of bands

Support acts announced across the tour include; Bleed From Within,  Sonic Boom Six, Jayce Lewis,  Black Futures,  Aaran Buchanan & The Cult Classics,  Those Damn Crows, Departed,  Chapter and Verse, The Dissident Youth , Tomorrow is Lost,  Ray Brower, Silvertown,  I Saw the World Burn, Stone Angels,  Asteroid Boys,  Mr Shiraz,  Bastard Sons,  Feed Them to the Forest, XIII,  Three Day Millionaires IDestroy, The Wax Lyrical Sound, Tigress, Desert Storm and  SKAM

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
