Skinbound / Bio

"A SKINBOUND show is more than just a show, its a full on sensory overload due to unparalleled lights an stage action leaving you in awe with mind blowing imagery and high energy drive." -Artvoice Magazine

SKINBOUND, based out of Buffalo, NY, combines dark imagery with topics of controversy. Their music depicts the violent truth of human nature and how greed, hypocrisy and power have corrupted the sacred institutions of religious belief.

In 2006 SKINBOUND released their first full length self titled record. They were also apart of many national tours including The Jagermeister: Summer of Sin Tour featuring Dope, Manntis and Bleed The Sky, Obituary's "Xecutioners Return" and Kittie's "Funeral For Yesterday" tour.

2007/2008 SKINBOUND was published and began receiving radio rotation in their home markets. Their album also became available through online retailers such as itunes, Napster, E-music, CDBaby and Verizon V-Cast.

2008 saw them featured on Eclipse Records compilation disc "Loud Music Vol. 10" and Sinister Music/Rockstar Energy Drinks "Mayhem Tour" compilation.

2009/2010 the band uprooted and moved its home base to Los Angeles, California to begin developing new markets by touring independently. In 2010 the band returned to NY to begin writing its sophomore record and to spend 2010 touring the East Coast.

In spring 2011 SKINBOUND released its second record "Between Blood and Angels" with worldwide distribution via Projekt Records/Seireenien Music. They continued to tour independently and perform with bands such as Unearth, Winds of Plague, Born of Osiris, Ventana, Circus of Dead Squirrels, As Summer Dies, The Bunny The Bear, Hanzel an Gretyl, The Genatortures, Sirens and Sailors, Memphis May Fire, Sister Sin, Rising Up Angry and Dead Star Assembly in support of its release.

With the success of "Between Blood and Angels" SKINBOUND released a video in May of 2012 for the single "The Crucible" which received 23,000 views within two months of its release. The band has begun writing and recording its third record (second for Projekt/Seireenien Music) and slated its release for winter 2013. Though 2012 has not yet come to a close SKINBOUND has performed at Rockapalooza and Straight Hate music festivals, toured independently throughout 2012 and performed with bands such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Burial, Devil Driver, Us From Outside, Attack Attack, Murder Death Kill, Wu-Tang Clan, Machine Gun Kelly, Life As A Ghost, A Plea For Purging, Dead Icons, Dweller, Texas In July and Psychostick.
