New progressive thrash/hardcore group Skin Failure have revealed their new video for ‘Meat Pond’, the first visual treat of their out-of-this-world debut album Radillac, which will be released 11th November via Small Pond.

Skin Failure comment on ‘Meat Pond’: “One of our favourites, this track came together super-fast when we were writing and then in the studio and it was a total joy to have Charlie (Davis) (Wasted Death / Beggar) come and guest with us. He really added some gnarly f**king character to the choruses and then the part in seven just sounds beastly with both Will and Charlie’s voices.”

A concept album, Radillac tells the story of an interdimensional ‘Jesus’, flung into amphetamine-powered wormhole and travelling through time and space. ‘Meat Pond’, track three from the record, has our ‘Jesus’ finding himself in 1980s London, meeting a godlike Jeff Bridges and training in a Matrix-style montage. 

This is not your everyday album, then. A full-throttle, high-psychedelia record, Radillac is the sound of a band having as much fun as is inhumanly possible. Elements as disparate as Every TimeI DieMastodon, and Slayer clash and combine to thrilling effect, with a bonus guest feature from UK comedy legend Ed Gamble on track four’s ‘Remy LeBeau’s Big Pile of Bones’.

Forming in 2021 after a few years of riff-gathering, Skin Failure‘s thrilling debut is testament to the limitless talent of the group: Will Gardner (vocals), Paul Stallan (guitar), Toby Stewart (guitar), Dave Larkin (bass), and Sam Simpson (drums). Skin Failure will make their live debut at ArcTanGent 2022.
