The Buffalo, NY based SKINBOUND 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.

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.
