Welsh “ragga metal” act Skindred released a brand new music video for ‘Volume’. The track is the second oficial single from the upcoming album bearing the same title Volume, after opening song ‘Under Attack’ was unveiled in September.

Formed in Newport, Wales in 1998 Skindred quickly raised to fame with their signature mix of nu metal and reggae/ragga rhythms.
