Scared because Skindred are great friends of ours and we will definitely be in danger of having too much fun and getting in too much trouble together!"

Skindred's drummer Arya Goggin says: "We always pride ourselves on having great guests on our tours and we are really excited to have SOiL as our main special guests on our Kill the Power UK Tour especially with Ryan back in the lineup. They are great friends and absolutely slay it live so we cant wait to party with them. We are also extremely excited to have LA band Viza also join the tour and to bring some of their unique energetic gypsy punk metal madness to the proceedings which should make for a great evening."
