Skindred announce ‘Smile (Again)’ UK headline tour – coming to Asylum

Welsh “ragga metal” legends Skindred have announced that they will be bringing their UK headline tour to Hull this autumn.

The band, who are due to headline the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury this summer, will be live at Asylum in Hull on Saturday 18 October.

Regarding the tour, frontman Benji Webbe said: “Myself and my brothers in Skindred are so excited to be heading back out on the road in the UK.

“We have had nothing but amazing vibes since we dropped our album ‘Smile’ and due to the amount of messages we have received we head back out to some of our favourite hotspots in the UK to mash it up again in the way only Skindred can, this heavy metal punk rock reggae sound system is about to rock ya all even more.

“You might have heard the songs but I swear our live show is some next level energy ting brov, so grab your tickets and your helicopter propels and get involved in this Dred extravaganza. To the older Dredites and the new, let’s bring the magic like only Skindred do. The Unity Sound rings true. So you know what to do.”

The band teased the tour this week during their interview and eye-catching performance on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch. This was the most recent in a string of high-profile TV performances which has seen them perform on the revered Later With Jools Holland, interviewed by BBC Breakfast, and more.

It’s been a whirlwind year for the rock icons, who shot straight to No.2 in the Official UK Albums Chart with their latest record ‘Smile’ via Earache Records.

The widely acclaimed release led the band to receive the Best Alternative Music Act Award at the MOBOs, while they are also nominated for Best UK Act at the forthcoming Heavy Music Awards.

Skindred played their largest headline show to date at Wembley Arena in 2024, while they have also continued to prove the hunger for the band internationally, performing to rabid crowds in each corner of the world, including their first ever show in New Zealand and most recently conquering Sick New World festival in Las Vegas.

They continue to globetrot this summer, performing at major festivals including Dead Pop Festival in Japan, Germany’s Rock am Ring & Rock im Park, and Pinkpop in the Netherlands.

Back in the UK this summer they will be headlining a number of festivals, including Steelhouse, Bristol Sounds and the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury.
