Skindred Premiere “It’s A Crime” Lyric Video

Skindred have premiered a lyric video for their song “It’s A Crime.“ That track was previously released as part of the Japanese edition of “Roots Rock Riot“ and it will also be featured on the upcoming reissue of the album. The re-release will be available on April 23 and it will also come with another bonus track titled “Struggle.“

Benji Webbe commented:

“I live in a neighbourhood (Newport, Wales) where back in the day, a lot of people were working hard and getting ripped off in life and then theres other ones that who are just hustling and selling this and selling that and it’s just a crime that hardworking people don’t get what the thieves/criminals get.”

Arya Goggin added:

“‘It’s A Crime‘ was written in 2006 in our basement studio below St Joseph’s Boxing club in Newport. It’s where all the writing for RRR took place. The only reason it didn’t make the album was because of how the album track listing flowed. We were so happy with how the album progressed from the opening of chaos of ‘Roots Rock Riot‘ to the epic ending of ‘Choices and Decisions‘ we didn’t want to crowbar another song in needlessly. It was a hard decision to leave it out but we are so happy it’s being included in the re-release. It was always a band and producer favourite.”
