THE SKINTS 2016 U.S. WINTER TOUR

UK-based reggae-dub four-piece The Skints are excited to announce their upcoming North American tour kicking off January 7, 2016 with Tribal Seeds and The Steppas. This will be the band’s second major tour in the States and is hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed album FM, which was released on the premier independent reggae label Easy Star Records.

FM is The Skints' fitting tribute to the radio culture they love as music fans as they pull from a variety of influences ingrained in the group while growing up listening to a number of different styles and sounds. Progressing through the bubbling sound of grime and garage to summertime sound system reggae, roots, dancehall, traditional rocksteady, Motown soul and punk, the East London-based group takes listeners on a whistle-stop tour of the capital’s underground culture in their latest venture.

The UK band has been openly embraced in the U.S. with their standout performance at 2015’s California Roots Music & Arts Festival coupled with major press support from The Wall Street Journal calling their music “deep hypnotic dub” and Large Up stating “The Skints represent the present and future of the genre [reggae].” The Skints’ vocalist and guitarist Josh Waters Rudge enthusiastically says, “We're so ready and excited to be kicking off 2016 with our second USA tour and are buzzing to be supporting Tribal Seeds on this one. Touring the States always has been and still is a dream for us, so we are very humbled and grateful to get down with the nice and decent people in the dance.”
