The album will feature twelve tracks sure to take hardcore SKINDRED fans to a whole new level."ROOTS ROCK RIOT" will be the follow-up to the bands groundbreaking, breakthrough, debut album, "BABYLON", which tallied over 250,000 albums sold and featured the smash single "NOBODY" and it's successful follow up "PRESSURE". During the time of Babylon's release, SKINDRED toured the world exhaustively with the likes of KORN, CHEVELLE, BREAKING BENJAMIN, HIM, SEVENDUST, PAPA ROACH, SOULFLY and also appeared on the mega DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL; where SKINDRED frontman Benji Webbe took over vocals for KORN to perform their legendary song, A.D.I.D.A.S.
