“Under Attack”, the new video from the Welsh “ragga metal” act SKINDRED, can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s new album, “Volume”, which will be released on October 30 via Napalm Records. In the U.S., the deluxe edition of the CD containing the “Rude Boys For Life” film as a bonus DVD will be made available as a Best Buy exclusive.
SKINDRED drummer Arya Goggin commented on the video: “With the ‘Under Attack’ video, we wanted the band in a small space with our fans. Down and dirty. The song is such a riffing track so we wanted a video that would complement it. It was a fun day to meet and hang out with genuine fans and then go mental with them throughout the day. You can’t fake that energy, and that what the cameras captured.”
“Volume” was recorded at The Strongroom studio in East London and was produced by longtime collaborator James “Lerock” Loughrey, who has previously worked with WHITE ZOMBIE, DEPECHE MODE and MANIC STREET PREACHERS.

“Rude Boys For Life” looks at life on the road, its ups and downs, celebrations, festival appearances and headline shows, studio access and their Polish Woodstock headline show where the band played to over one million people.
Directed by SKINDRED’s Dan Sturgess, “Rude Boys For Life” offers a revealing and exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of rock music’s best live bands. Taken from over 1000 hours of footage filmed by the band over its 17-year career, “Rude Boys For Life” chronicles the band’s rise: through the making of all six studio albums, including the new album, “Volume”, to exclusive, unseen, behind-the -scenes footage of five world tours; through the early days — touring the USA in a van, to the birth of the now infamous Newport Helicopter at Download festival 2011, culminating in their headline set to a million people at Polish Woodstock. It is a must for any SKINDRED fan, offering unparalleled access to the band’s life on the road, with SKINDRED members talking candidly about the highlights, the pitfalls, and how they’ve maintained inter-band relationships over the course of their career.
SKINDRED has announced a full U.K. headline tour in November. After a sold-out arena run with STEEL PANTHER, a remarkable Camden Rocks performance, two sold-out Hit The Deck headline slots and a host of European festival shows (including Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany with FOO FIGHTERS and SLIPKNOT), SKINDRED will be hitting the road with CROSSFAITH, YASHIN and HED PE as support.
