Formed in 1992, SKINTRADE released the self-titled debut in 1993 and immediately climbed the Swedish charts, convincing the international rock-press to rave about the band. Their video’s made it to MTV‘s Headbangers Ball, a very popular, trendsetting tv-show at the time that was broadcasted al over Europe. It resolved in intensive tours, incl. some of the biggest European festivals and supporting bands like D.A.D. and Therapy?. In 1995 the follow-up ROACHPOWDER was released and the band embarked on a new tour. Shortly after, they decided to quit.
Due to consistent requests of the fans, the members collaborated again in 2011, launched a ‘best of’ album PAST AND PRESENT (2012) and went touring again. Next milestones, two new abums: REFUELED (2014, re-issued in 2017) and SCARRED FOR LIFE (2015) followed by yet another tour across Europe. After taking a break, the new single WOMAN (2019) came out as a preview on the forthcoming album THE SHOW MUST GO ON. It became available in April 2020, but officially launched with an on-line concert (damn that covid-19!) on July 7th 2020.
Once again, SKINTRADE is back and is looking forward to get on the road as soon as possible…
