New progressive thrash/hardcore group Skin Failure are overjoyed to announce their out-of-this-world debut album Radillac, to be released 11th November via Small Pond.
The quintet, made up of members of Black Peaks, Memory of Elephants, and Kainoah, have also streamed their new single ‘Meat Pond’, featuring guest vocals from Charlie Davis of Wasted Death and Beggar.

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 Die, Mastodon, 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.
