Skindred is now streaming their new acoustic song "Struggle" off their upcoming reissue of Roots Rock Riot, which will feature rare tracks and previously unheard music. As for "Struggle", it reminds me of Coheed & Cambria in both its overall vibe and vocal line.
“The song ‘Struggle’, to me at least conveys a message of hope when you're in the battle for love," said drummer Arya Goggin. "We have all been there and sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. ‘Struggle’ is about keeping on with the fight as it will be worth it in the end.
“Life is sometimes a struggle and this year it has really highlighted that. To me it’s as important today as it was when we wrote it over 15 years ago. I’m so pleased it’s getting the chance to be heard and hopefully people will draw a positive message from it.”
