Rockers Skindred called on Area 51 to make their Halloween gig more of a scream dream!

The Welsh reggae-rockers opted to wear fancy dress costumes for their eagerly-anticipated gig at the 02 Academy in Birmingham on October 31 which coincided with Halloween.

And lead vocalist Benji Webbe opted to use Area 51's striking Darth Vader costume at the gig while band mates Mikey Demus wore a garish Smurf outfit and bassist Dan Pugsley wore a Kigu crocodile get-up. Drummer Arya Goggin was decked out like the Muppets' famous wildman of percussion, Animal.

The gig was one of the Jägermeister 'Ice Cold' events and Skindred were supported by metal heroes Therapy?, Glasgow-based quintet Yashin, Rolo Tomassi as well as The Treatment and Malefice.

Skindred, who formed in the late 1990s from the ashes of Dub War and originally hail from Newport in South Wales, fuse heavy metal, punk and reggae styles while also encompassing elements of drum and bass, hip hop, ska and dancehall into their multi-faceted sound.
