The Black Seeds: Release new studio album "Dust And Dirt"

Reggae‐soul heavyweights The Black Seeds return with their highly anticipated new studio album Dust And Dirt. By far their most progressive record to date, Dust and Dirt incorporates elements of funk, rock and disco while remaining true to the band’s roots.

Dust and Dirt is the first LP to come out on the band’s own label Proville Records and follows their critically acclaimed LP’s Into The Dojo (2007) and Solid Ground (2008). Self-recorded and produced in their own studio, situated in a condemned building in Wellington, New Zealand, the album was honed down from over two albums‐worth of material. The result a 13‐track album that the band feels represents their true sound and best work yet.

Renowned for their epic live shows, (Described by Clash Magazine as ‘one of the best live reggae acts on the planet’,) the band have performed at some of Europe’s leading music festivals (Roskilde, Lowlands, Summerjam, Lovebox, Big Chill), The Black Seeds are returning in April/May for club shows throughout Europe.
