Skindred Frontman Benji Webbe Reveals "Big Tings" In Store, Including New Solo Material And What He Thinks Of Modern Reggae

Back in 2006, at the tender age of sixteen, I went with two friends to see Soulfly at the Bristol Academy. Opening the show that night was a band from Newport, who were just about to re-release their debut album, "Babylon." Not too many had heard of them but they put on a show to remember and that album soon became a must have for all young fans of rock and metal and not one person there would forget their name. That band was Skindred and since "Babylon" they have gone from strength to strength, releasing six more albums, including, "Big Tings" last month and have become one of the country's favourite live bands.

Twelve years later, I had the pleasure of meeting Skindred frontman Benji Webbe at the same venue, where this time they were headlining and joined by CKY and Danko Jones. During our meeting, we discussed the new album, "Big Tings," working with Reef singer Gary Stringer, the "That's My Jam" music video, future plans for solo material and what the frontman thinks of today's reggae. You can watch the interview in full below.
