Released: 21 April 2020
The mighty Dub Pistols are back with new single ‘Bankrobber’, released on April 21st through Sunday Best Recordings. Originally released by punk-reggae legends The Clash, Barry Ashworth and the Dub Pistols have injected their own unique blend of reggae and dancehall with guest vocals from long-time collaborator Seanie T.
It kicks off what is going to be a huge year for the band, with 9th album ‘Addict’ set for release in September. The new album is a melting pot of dubwise sensibility, junglist riddims and feel-good party anthems, “I think it’s the best album we’ve ever done,” says Barry.
From their early beginnings as a soundsystem project, Dub Pistols have grown into a party-rocking live band that ignites festivals and venues, having played all round the world and establishing themselves as Glastonbury regulars.
Known for their genre-mashing abilities, they have worked with some of their biggest heroes including The Specials, Horace Andy, Busta Rhymes, Madness and Gregory Isaacs. After 26 years in the business, the Dub Pistols certainly show no signs of slowing down.
