Arrangement with Primary Talent International presents Dub Pistols: Addict Tour.
To celebrate the much-anticipated release of their new album Addict this year, the Dub Pistols are on tour and they’re coming to the Westy in March!
The Dub Pistols are a riotous collision of drum & bass, hip-hop, ska, dub and punk. One of the most exhilarating live bands on the circuit, these festival favourites have survived international terrorism, inter-band warfare and the wheels falling off their operation numerous times. Now a slickly drilled outfit, they’ve nevertheless lost none of their kick-ass vitality and renegade edge wherever they rock up to play.
The eighth Dub Pistols album Addict — named after the track Addicted To The Bassline, featuring Cheshire Cat — is a melting pot of dubwise sensibility, junglist riddims and feelgood party anthems. “I think it’s the best album we’ve ever done,” says Barry, although during the recording of it they tragically lost one of their members, Will xxx. “That was a real down-point, but we want to celebrate him in this album,” Barry adds.
Addict also features mic skills from 2-Tone heroine Rhoda Dakar, stalwart MC Navigator, long-term collaborator Lindy Layton, and foundation MCs the Ragga Twins, as well as permanent live vocalist of the past few years, Mr Seanie T.
