SKIP&DIE return with much awaited 2nd album, "Cosmic Serpents"

... and an extensive world tour 2015


After setting stages on fire around the planet during their successful two-year Riots In The Jungle tour, pan-tropical future bass band SKIP&DIE are back with an exhilarating new album, entitled “COSMIC SERPENTS” - luring their audiences into a landscape somewhere between paradise, the apocalypse and beyond.

With its re-imagining of global music, irresistible rhythms and beats, acoustic instruments, field recordings and spacey synths, SKIP&DIE’s upcoming album, “COSMIC SERPENTS”, reveals a poetic sonic collage that toys with ideas of transient life, looming death, and the notion that our collective DNA coils throughout eternity like a cosmic serpent.

Set for release March 2015, the new album was written and recorded in Brazil, Egypt, Argentina, Colombia, La Reunion island, South Africa, Portugal and the Netherlands. It incorporates a rich variety of musical styles (from digital cumbia, creole maloya, brazilian rasterinha and electro chaabi - to dub, footwork and psychedelic rock) which have been inventively merged into an intimately layered SKIP&DIE universe.

SKIP&DIE consist of South African songwriter, vocalist and visual artist Catarina Aimée Dahms aka Cata.Pirata, producer Jori Collignon on keys and FX, Gino Bombrini on percussion & guitar and Daniel Rose on guitar and other string instruments. They are joined on "COSMIC SERPENTS" by a handful of exciting guests from around the globe.

The first single and video is the title track, “Cosmic Serpents”, scheduled for release this December.
