Cooking Vinyl’s recently launched rock imprint has just signed Skindred to a new worldwide deal, which will include the release of a new album already in development.

Confirming the deal, DoubleCross GM Phil Hopwood told CMU: “Skindred are a genuinely unique band. They sound like no one else, and it’s really exciting to be working with them. We feel there is huge potential for Skindred internationally whilst continuing to develop their UK profile”.

Meanwhile Skindred’s manager, 7PM Management’s Seven Webster, added: “I love what Cooking Vinyl have done with acts like The Prodigy globally, and I have known Phil since he was one of the best label managers at Vital. To be working with this combined tour de force is for me the perfect team to help take Skindred to the next level”.
