Legendary 2-Tone artists, The Selecter, will release their new studio album “SUBCULTURE” on 15 June 2015 on DMF Records and have just announced a tour this Autumn.
The album has been produced by Neil Pyzer and expertly mixed by Prince Fatty and is the calling card of a ‘classic’ band that are completely tuned into the issues and challenges of the modern world.
In the past they’ve played at major festivals like Coachella, the Isle of Wight and Glastonbury, headlined two UK tours and recorded three studio albums, the latest of which, “Subculture“.
The Selecter is led by their iconic front-woman Pauline Black, whose recent series of shows on BBC 6Music were hugely well received, and whose book ‘Black By Design’ continues to sell in droves worldwide, alongside an incredible talented band of musicians, including Neil Pyzer (Spear Of Destiny) Will Crewdson (Rachel Stamp) and co-fronted by original member Arthur ‘Gaps’ Hendrickson (who features extensively on Subculture).
The anarchic passion that fuelled Selecter gigs during the 2 Tone era, when they toured with the Specials and Madness at the peak of their early fame is still there, except the pair (Pauline & Gaps) seem more driven than ever. Their confidence is sky-high and they’re also writing the best songs of their career, which is saying something given the enduring popularity of hits like Three Minute Hero, Missing Words and On My Radio.
Listen to Three Minute Hero below:
The Selecter will play at The Academy, Dublin on 11 December and at The Limelight, Belfast on 12 December as part of their recently announced Autumn tour.
